Blair Lake

Blair LakeA lake, creek, and wet meadow all by the side of the road—how easy can botanizing get? There’s also a trail through the woods to some upper rocky areas and beargrass meadows if you feel like hiking. Aswim in the shallow lake is a great way to end a day of hiking. And there’s even a campground if you want to stick around overnight. This is also a great place to go to see butterflies.

NOTE: This area was badly burned in the 2023 Cedar Creek Fire. As of 2024, it is still closed to the public.
