East Fork Lake Creek Trail

Contact Info
800 West Lakeside Ave.
PO Box 1026
McCall, ID 83638



This is the alternative trail to Maki Lake mentioned below. Instead of entering the Lake Fork Creek campground and crossing Lake Fork Creek, drive across the first bridge on the main Lick Creek road about 1 mile past the campground turnoff. You will see on the south side of the bridge a large dispersed camping area. You may park there and follow the trail that parallels Lake Fork Creek. This trail is one mile to the trailhead across from the campground. The 2 mile round trip hike is a very pleasant one. If you want to stretch your legs but are not looking for an arduous trip, this is it. It is a rolling stretch of trail with little if any elevation change. There are huckleberries along the trail, interesting rocks to climb on and a few hidden fishing spots--a good place to get the kids started in hiking. The rest of the East Fork trail except the last mile or two before Maki Lake stays near the starting elevation of 5700'. It is used for mountain biking and except for a couple of places where you may have to carry your bike through the rocks it is a good bike trail. It's also a very popular horse riding trail. People may use the unloading ramp and hitching rails at the Lake Fork Guard Station. A short ride will take you to the trailhead beside the campground. It is necessary to ford the stream. There is limited parking in this area. (Trail Difficulty - Moderate)
