Map + Directions
Turn south off of Highway 88 on the Bear River Reservoir Road. Travel approximately two miles. At the first signed intersection, take the fork to the right (8N03 - South Shore). At the second and third signed intersections, stay to the left (8N03) and follow the road to a sign that says "Devil's Lake Trailhead". The trail is a moderate one and one-half mile hike to the lake. Devil's Lake is one of a few Sierra lakes where leeches may be found.
