Pretty trail- took the #646 as described by previous hiker. Couldn’t find direct access to the lakes without bush-wacking. Climbed above the lakes for pretty views. Turned around at that point.

Another example of why it’s so easy to fall in love with the Cabinet Mountains!! Hiked the Geiger Lakes using trail #656 (Forest Service provides good local maps). This is a different trail than the one featured on AllTrail. I picked this one because TH was just a few miles from the outstanding Lake Creek Campground (huge sites, bear lockers, loads of privacy, remote, beautiful). MANY trails leading to and around the Geiger Lake area. Beautiful trails, primarily forested, cool in the summer, fairly well maintained, overgrown in some places. Numerous wildfires made the air Smokey and brown unfortunately. Still absolutely worth doing! Highly recommend this trail and others nearby! It is deep in both black bear and Grizzly country so don’t forget bear spray.
