Harlequin Lake Trailhead
Located opposite a large elevated pull off on the south side of the main road, the .5-mile, gradual increase 100-foot elevation change trail begins and heads north through dense lodgepole pine forest. The last .2 miles the trail turns west and drops gradually to arrive at the east part of Harlequin Lake and continues along its southern border. Harlequin Lake is quite shallow, its perimeters are partly covered with yellow flower Lily pads, and it has a beautiful mountain backdrop to the north rising 1,400 feet for added scenery and lake reflection. This is a family friendly trail in an area that is rich in habitat for elk, beaver, and waterfowl.
