Shellrock Lake

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

Shellrock Lake (bobcat)


Shellrock Lake is a 20-acre, fairly shallow mountain lake just inside the Roaring River Wilderness. Its south shore is only 0.6 miles up the Shellrock Lake Trail #700, so it is visited rather frequently, especially by fishermen. Most people choose to camp at the nearby Hideaway Lake Campground rather than at the lake.

The lake is named for the "shellrock", or platy andesite, on the scree slopes above it: to some, this appeared like piles of shells.
