This was our first trip to this remote area, and we loved it. Memories linger still, and the area definitely tugs at my heart. We like to hike and kayak, and this is perfect for both. Little Hellgate Falls trail is off Magalloway Road, between 1st and 2nd lakes, difficult to find, but well worth it. The beginning of the... More

This area is really nice, sparsely populated with plenty to do outdoors. Fishing, hiking, wildlife viewing, etc. If you're into doing things outside, this is a place to consider.

On this trip we brought our boat to explore the 1st Connecticut Lake. There is a wonderful launch site and adjacent picnic area with lots of parking. Launching and pull-out were very easy on this ramp. Our trip around the lake was beautiful. The next morning my husband took the boat out again to fish - he landed several rainbow... More

Been fishing this area for 21 yrs. Whatever your fishing style, this area has it all. Large lakes, small ponds and rivers. Trolling, fly fishing, casting or still fishing. No crowds-no waterskiers. Just fisherman.

is kind of cool about the area. It also has you going by Beaver Falls (depending on your route), and yes, Beaver Falls is a must stop.

Great place to Kayak! Sadly we didn't have as much luck fishing these lakes but we did have an amazing time taking the kayaks out that we rented from Lopstick.

For some great photos, get up early and photograph the fog rising off the Lakes. Rt. 3 is miles upon miles of wilderness. Quiet and serene.
