The trail begins near some old mine tailings and travels southwest towards a small ridge and then drops down to Pass Creek. The trail follows the creek and passes several beaver ponds that offer good fishing for brook trout. The lake is relatively small and shallow but is well stocked with brook trout.
The hike to Pass Creek lake is one of the area's favorite day hikes. The trail is 4 miles in length and climbs steadily to the lake. The lake is relatively shallow and brook trout can be seen swimming along the lake bottom.
This is a great hike for an overnight trip to a secluded high lake. Camping is permitted in several sites located away from the lake. The trail follows the stream as it climbs steadily to the basin.
