Driving Directions

Driving south on I-205, take Exit 12A for Highways 224 and 212E, Clackamas and Estacada. From the merger with Highway 224, drive 3.3 miles and turn right on Highway 224E for Carver and Estacada.

Go 15.3 miles, passing through Carver and Estacada. On the east side of Estacada, at the junction with Highway 211 for Molalla and Woodburn, keep straight on Highway 224 for the Upper Clackamas River and North Fork Lake.

From here it’s 25.5 miles on Highway 224E past the Ripplebrook Guard Station. After crossing a bridge, FR 57 goes off to the left for Timothy Lake.

Turn left here and drive 7.5 miles on paved FR 57 and then make a left turn onto narrow, paved FR 58.

Drive uphill 6.4 miles and turn right onto the 5800-160 spur road for the Anvil Lake Trail.

It’s 0.4 miles down this brushy narrow gravel track, overhung by Sitka alder, to a parking area on the right just before the trailhead. There's another pullout just past the signed trailhead.
