This is an easy walk/hike that leads down to the lake. It is down hill all the way so save some energy to walk back up hill if you spend sometime in the water.

The parking area is not marked and only has enough room for about three cars, but I haven't seen more than just one other car there so far.

Nice easy trail to a beautiful beach on Shaver. Our 4 year old had fun on the way there, struggled a little bit on the uphill on the way back.

I originally went for a hike but ended up 4-wheeling the path instead. It snowed the week before and the rain created an extremely muddy path that my jeep was able to navigate with ease. I was able to pull off on the side of a bank and hike the several feet of snow that covered the creek. It was so much fun and my dogs loved it!

The current Tree removal has effectively removed all the perimeter road markers east of the road that takes you down to the Fishing club. So, be VERY aware before heading out. IT's very torn up by huge tractors, debris everywhere and we were really turned around a few times without ANY markers left and NO trail. West of The fishing Club road appeared to be just fine!

Shaver lake is my favorite place in the world. Hiking, camping, swimming, fishing, boating-- you name it. I have so many memories of this lake from my childhood and it has a revered place in my heart.
