What a great hike. The drive up the gravel road is a little rough but worth it. Once at the lake take the hike out to Spray Falls. You'll be glad you did

My 4 boys, husband and I went on a short day hike last weekend at Mowich Lake. The hike was beautiful and relatively easy. All of my boys enjoyed skipping rocks, finding unique driftwood, and carefully stepping over the many roots and stumps along the trail. A forest ranger recommended this lake to us a few weekends ago while we... More

This is a great place to visit in the summer. Road is closed about 3 miles out in the winter. Great hike to Spray Falls.

It is July 2012 but there is still snow present around the lake. 55 degrees, but almost perfect hiking weather. Trail to Spray Falls is clear of snow. Perfect time to go with the various flows of water falls, streams and the flowers beginning to bud. Nature, quiet and serene, beautiful flow of water. Keep an eye on the children... More

One camps in a circle next to others and sometimes groups. You can day camp here and access trails for day hikes and not have to backpack. The road can be bad getting there but not as bad as some. BUGS are a huge problem when they are in season.

My siblings and I had the greatest outdoorspeople for parents. It was a life filled with boating the northwest waters, camping the entire western states, hunting... More

I Just HIke to Mowich Lake On the 5th of July from the trail head at the end of Hwy 165 It was a great hike and had a lot of fun, but as you get closer to the top the trail eventually fades out due to being snow covered. At the top there was still 6 or more feet... More
