Opal Lake

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

Inlet on Opal Lake (bobcat)

Description

The Opal Lake trail drops down steeply from FR 2207 less than half a mile to Opal Lake, the source of Opal Creek. Opal Lake is remote and beautiful spot, and of late has been used as a starting point for those wanting to visit elusive Opal Creek Falls, a few-tenths of a mile downstream from the lake (bushwhack only).

You can also reach Opal Lake by bushwhacking up from Opal Creek, but that trip is recommended to only the most hardy and intrepid hikers with bushwhacking experience.
