Weaver Lake - Chehalis Lake
Part I of II
This time I was looking for a short hike and some scenic drive around the Harrison Area. Weaver Lake is a small lake located 14 km northeast of the community of Harrison Mills.
In this place you can park and camp, fish, hike and boat. The hike goes around the lake.
On the middle of the trail and after a gain of less than 50 m (160 ft) we reached the highest point of the trail.
From the viewpoint we had a very nice view of the lake, then we returned to the forest.
On the last part of the trail the preponderance of conifers gives way to such deciduous trees as vine maple and alder, plus shade-loving flowers like coral root. This habitat encourages bushes and for that reason the trail is a little overgrown.
After that, we drove 30 km to the west to reach the spectacular Chehalis Lake. This lake is 10 km long and a truck is usually recommended for the last 13 km of gravel road.
Despite the large size of the lake there are only three access points. We choose the north end of the lake.
There are a lot of backroads and trails on this area make it an extremely attractive area for hiking, 4x4 exploring, dirt biking or sightseeing. One of my favorites hikes is only 5 km away from this place
