Setting out from the trailhead, the Seville Lake Hike follows the Sugarloaf Entrance Trail southeast into the wilds. Gradually climbing through the woodlands, the route will redirect you east over Rowell Creek. Note this stream tends to dry in the summer months, so make sure you have an adequate amount of water with you. Here you will encounter an intersection, veer right, and you will be diverted onto the Belle Canyon Entrance Trail. Follow this path away from the streams bound by meadows and back into the forest.
Diving down into Belle Canyon, you will confront another junction; turn right onto the Seville Lake Trail. This lovely path will guide you through the basin to the charming lake framed by the rocky ridges anchored by Kettle Peak. Revel in the scenery, then head back the way you came.
