The trail distance is 6 miles.



To reach the waterfalls at the end of the lake take the right trail (counter clockwise) and continue 2.9 miles. The trail crosses the lakes main inlet at 3.0 miles and it is possible to hear the waterfalls at this point. The falls is 25 yards further up the stream.


There are informal campsites along the trail and on the portion of the trail north of the lake there is an open area of grass, pines, beach and sandy lake bottom. At one time a girls camp was located on the shores of Cascade Lake.
