BOGACHIEL RIVER TRAIL INFORMATION



Mink Lake Trail begins at the Sol Duc Hot Springs resort and climbs 1,400 feet in about 2.5 miles, through the forest to the lake, which is stocked with eastern brook and lake trout. This is a lake in the final stages of life. A portion of it is choked with grasses and other vegetation. Birds, including loons, are plentiful in this marshy environment. The trail continues above Mink Lake, to the 4.3-mile mark where it intersects with the Bogachiel (backcountry) Trail, at Little Divide. There is a small meadow at this point, offering good views of nearby peaks, and several varieties of summer wildflowers.
