Ross Lake Trail

  Steep climb with little reward, mosquitos, caught one 8 inch fish the whole time.
Says Tone

In four days four of us caught 13 fish over 20 inches and 27 fish overall, none of which were less than 14 inches.† Campsites are plentiful and established.† Great views of other mountain lakes beautiful sunsets and sunrises. The trail is very nice and well marked the entire way. All the climbing is worth every minute once you see the lake.
Says John

    Ross Lake wasn't worth the trip. Horrible fishing and rough trail. I'd recommend other destinations over Ross Lake. Lots of the forest in the area has burned and is not very scenic.
Says Mike
