This little-known trail out to Fehr Lake is a good way to avoid the crowds at the other ‘front-country’ lakes by means of a short hike into the backcountry. That being said, the hike in is definitely short enough to schlep in a cooler and fishing rod! Just make sure you have a fishing license to go with your “soda-pops”.

Route Description for Fehr Lake
This is a very direct hike; there isn’t much to say! Take the trail leading out from the parking area. You’ll cross a few wooden bridges before descending a short ways down into the forest. After a few extremely short undulating climbs and descents, you will arrive at the west side of Fehr Lake.
This quaint and calm lake is usually devoid of crowds. Sitting around the lake and soaking in the beauty is definitely a worthwhile activity, and we found it so enjoyable that we just had to include this little hike on our list. After enjoying the stunning placid lake, return the way you came.
