Hike out from the West Fork parking lot, proceeding through about 1.5 miles of burn from forest fire, before entering a wooded area. After about 4 miles, you will reach Quinnebaugh meadows and should begin looking to the right for the turn-off to Lake Mary. The final stretch is a climb for just over a mile, ending at a beautiful secluded mountain lake.Show more
