picturesque lake
by AZClaimjumper

Ophir Creek Trailhead is in the Davis Creek Regional Park.

In addition to RV overnight parking (permit required), there is indoor plumbing & running water in the restrooms.

Campgrounds are available on a first come, first serve basis (Permit required)

The trail is well maintained & obvious from the Trail Head to Ophir Creek. Ophir Creek is a popular turn around point, or resting/nutritional break point for those proceeding on to Rock Lake.

After crossing Ophir Creek, there is a 60% ascent & the trail is lightly traveled, sometimes faint & hard to follow. Good trail reading skills are essential. There are some cairns, but more can & should be added.

Your reward is a scenic, picturesque, lake nestled in & surrounded by higher peaks. Normally, there is a beautiful lake at the end of the trail. Be sure to bring your camera, you'll want to show off this lovely scene to your friends. In the fall it may only be a big mud puddle.
