Jean Lake

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

Jean Lake (bobcat)


Jean Lake is a neglected jewel ensconced in marshy meadows on the wooded slopes above Badger Lake. It is attained by a short trail descending from the rough Bennett Pass Road (FR 3550). The lake is fed by a creek that then flows down the slope to join Badger Creek. Marsh wildflowers abound here in the summer, as do marsh bugs. There is a campsite at the lake and it has been stocked with rainbow trout.

According to McArthur and McArthur's Oregon Geographic Names, the lake was named by "USFS ranger Eric Gordon for his eldest daughter, Jean." However, older topographic maps give the name "Jack Lake" to the little body of water.
