Packwood Lake Trail

A pristine, nearly crystal-clear lake awaits you at the end of the Packwood Lake Trail, a 7.5-mile round trip hike from just outside of Packwood.

This family-friendly trail heads into a corner of the Goat Rocks Wilderness and winds its way through stands of forest before depositing hikers at the historic Packwood Lake, which once was home to a resort.

At Packwood Lake itself, you can see a century-old guard station that today is included in the National Register of Historic Places. Stop there and enjoy the view of the lake as it opens up to reveal Agnes Island at the center of the water, with more of the Goat Rocks Wilderness painting the landscape with hills, trees, mountains and more. You'll want to bring the camera for this one.

Total hike time is about 5-8 hours, including time for just resting and enjoying the view — which is just one of many perfect ways to discover a true gem of Lewis County!

Parking is available at the trailhead at the end of Forest Road 1260 about 5 miles out of Packwood. A Northwest Forest Pass is required.
