Description

This trail is a nice and easy trail leading to Yoran Lake. If you are using the trail as an out and back from the Trapper Creek trailhead, you'll have a gentle uphill to the Lake. We did a cross country trip from the PCT to Yoran Lake and then hooked up with the trail after camping the night at the lake.

There are a small group of lakes around Yoran Lake, and the terrain is suitable to camp off the trail. Mosquitoes were a big problem when we were there. We were the only people camping at these lakes.

The trail itself is in a fir forest. There are some open meadows along the way and a few small ponds or wet meadows. The forest thins out as you get closer to Yoran, and there are views of Diamond Peak in the open areas. If you do an overnight, there small unnamed lakes around Yoran. I also understand that there are trout in the lakes, although I did not fish.

The Trapper Creek trailhead parking is not well marked but it is just on the other side of the train tracks. You do have to cross the tracks to start your journey, so be careful.

Flora & Fauna

Lots and lots of mosquitos all the time and especially near the lakes.
