Myrtle Lake

This undated postcard shows serene Myrtle Lake, located several miles from the end of the road in the Entiat Valley.

Myrtle Lake is located in the Entiat Valley of Central Washington. The hike is approximately 4 miles one way, with the trailhead located at the end of Entiat River Road. There are fish in the lake, and sometimes deer can be spotted along the shore.

Myrtle Lake back
Myrtle Lake is the Entiat Valley approach to the North Cascades parkland– a wilderness threshold on the east side of the mountain country considered by many to be America’s scenic climax. Left unspoiled, this can be a perpetual attraction to the traveler.

Due to damage from last year’s Duncan Fire, the trail is currently closed.
