Bonnie Lake Trail Construction Complete

Construction has officially been completed on the trail to Bonnie Lake, a small alpine lake nestled in a valley on the eastern side of Mt. Thompson’s South Peak. The trailhead can be found approximately 2.9 km down the Rim Trail, easing off to the left and starting down a steep side slope through the alpine. Recommended for intermediate to advanced hikers, the trail gradually steepens, leading through a series of switch backs after 400 meters. The trail itself spans just over 1 km to the lake, with a total vertical drop of 250 meters. Once reaching the lake the trail leads along the shoreline for a quick walk to an unofficial campsite. Plans are in place for a picnic table and fire ring to be installed at the campsite later on this year.

Construction of the trail began July 11th of this year, and was completed on August 25th. The Community Forest gives thanks for the hard work of our trail crew and volunteers, who made the completion of this trail possible despite difficult working conditions.
