How to use My Trip

Gorman Lake

Hike to a beautiful alpine lake through a forest, across a boggy section with boardwalks and a climb through a rock field. Watch for wildlife including grizzly and black bear. The lake is stocked with rainbow trout.

Access via Gorman FSR off Golf Course Road. The road is a 17 km rough and narrow logging road with potholes which may be snow-bound until July. A high clearance vehicle is essential. Active logging may be in place at any time so watch for logging trucks. Park at the road bridge and proceed from there on foot.
