Route Description for Snyder Lake Trail
The Snyder Lake Trail is a beautiful hike that reminds us of our wilderness’s strength when you see the aftermath of the Sprague Fire and how nature has rebuilt. Beginning the hike at the Sperry Trailhead, it quickly becomes Gunsight Pass Trail and has a steep climb. At 2.7 km from the trailhead, turn left at the Snyder Lake Trail junction and follow Snyder Creek. Most of this trail area flows through high vegetation, so make sure you make a lot of noise and carry your bear spray. Another steep climb will come your way before you descend down to Snyder Lake. Take your time and then follow the trail back the way you came as this is an out-and-back trail.
