Here is a link to a description of the 4 sections of the Lake Shore National Recreation Trail. https://www.fs.usda.gov/recarea/fishlake/recarea/?recid=80504
This map at the trailhead was misleading. Made it look so easy. Glad I studied more detailed maps.
This view from the trailhead looked good.
Yep, horses allowed.
This is the actual trailhead called "Lake Creek". We could have parked here.
