Description

Possibly one of the park's best views along Highway 20, the Diablo Lake Overlook cannot be missed. Take a short stroll around the parking lot on wide, open paths for stunning views of Diablo's blue waters, and on clearer days, the towering North Cascades above.

On the Road: There is a smaller parking lot just off the highway, yet with ample space. Restrooms and picnic tables available.

Family Friendly: Accessible area just off the road with views of some of the park's best scenery. Viewpoints are lined with railings.

Dry - Hiked 7/22. Trail is dry and clear. Water and rest rooms at the trailhead in the campground. Woods thin out after the initial switchbacks, so a mid-day hike will not be shaded on the upper portion of the trail. Views of stunning Diablo Lake and surrounding mountains are best at the viewpoint about 200 yards before the end of the trail.
