Dark Lake

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

Note: As of 2017, a sign has been posted at the Olallie Lake end of the Long Lake Trail stating that only tribal members and authorized personnel can use the trail and access Long and Dark Lakes. Please respect this sign. Those lakes are now out of bounds until further notice.

Dark Lake nestles in a glacial bowl below andesite cliffs. The lake is on the Warm Springs Reservation, so no overnight camping is permitted and a Warm Springs Fishing Permit is required. Warm Springs Trail #T-12 accesses the lake from Olallie Lake. It is part of a series of lakes, from Long Lake to Trout Lake, that spill to the east. Trout Lake has a campground for fishermen and is accessible by road.
