|Went out to spend the day around Watson Lake hiking and kayaking. Started out at the TH for the Watson Dam trail and looking for a route around the Lake clockwise. I'm amazed at how few HAZ'ers have been up to this area. |
Climbing in and out of the rocks led to some gorgeous views. There is a real sweet riparian area abutting the base of the Watson Lake dam. It was a very peaceful hike with very few hikers for a Saturday. There are many areas to explore around the rocky outcroppings on the lake.
The hike was quite enjoyable on all but the road hike to get back to the car.
Here a collection of short videos taken from around the lake.
My clockwise route around the Lake took me on:
Watson Dam Trail,
Over the Hill Trail,
Lower Granite Creek Discovery Trail,
Watson Lake Trail (Circle Trail),
Route 89a (.5 mile)
East Granite Dells Trail (.2 mile)
