The 32-acre reservoir at Cave Lake State Park is popular for trout fishing, crawdadding, boating, hiking, picnicking and camping. Perched in the middle of the Schell Creek Range, adjacent to the Humboldt National Forest at an elevation of 7,300 feet, the park offers outstanding scenic views and opportunities for nature study and photography. Facilities include campgrounds, picnic areas, hiking trails and a boat launch. Winter sports such as ice fishing, cross-country skiing and ice skating are also available. Snow sculpting is becoming a popular activity, and the White Pine Fire & Ice Show is the premier winter event in the area.

Great day hike! Took us a little bit longer than we anticipated (a little under 2.5 hours) as the elevation gains were a bit steep at times, but we are both just starting to get back into shape so that could be why. Great views and lots of spots to see them! Definitely recommend!

When entering the trail, I suggest using the trail to the right and do the loop counter- clockwise. Take your time. Many great views along the way. I considered elevation change moderate to hard.

this was a fantastic hike. did it in about an hour and a half. the elevation gain ks not too severe. Trail is a bit rocky. There were so many amazing view points to stop and look at. i would recommend this to anyone looking for an easy day hike.
