Because there is no trail to this lake, it is highlighted here for those who want to test their map and compass skills and for those wishing to have a truly wilderness fishing experience. It should also be noted that black bears frequent this area.

Additional Details:

Non-motorized boats only. Packable rubber rafts and float tubes are used by some fishermen in the wilderness areas; however, this is not advised for lakes such as Secret Lake which is a cross-country trek and very remote.

A valid California state fishing license is needed to fish within the National Forest. Licenses are sold at sporting good and other retail stores. For information on fishing times & limits a current state fishing regulation guide is generally available free at these same locations. For more information contact California Department of Fish & Game.


Map + Directions

Basic Directions

Both Sulphur Springs Trailhead (Elk Creek Trail) or Haypress Trailhead access the general area of the lake (roughly 10 miles from either direction); however, there is no trail directly to the lake. It can be located with good map and compass work (a USGS Quad map or equivalent is recommended).
