Travel north on Warren Wagon Road to the Chinook campground a mile beyond where the road last crosses the Secesh River. Enjoy a 5.25 mile trek to beautiful Loon Lake. This is a 10.5 mile round trip hike with only a 200' elevation gain. Many people do this as a long day hike. The trail can be done as a loop, the recently completed bridge at the Chinook Campground, means you no longer have to ford the Secesh River. It is also recommended as an overnight trip leaving plenty of time for fishing and swimming. A pleasant shorter trip is the 3.5 mile walk to the suspension bridge that crosses the Secesh River. Starting elevation is 5676' and the lake elevation is 5800'. Outside the campground there is a horse use area. This area includes an unloading ramp, hitching rails, plenty of room to park horse trailers, and a toilet. This trail is also a very popular mountain bike trail; keep an eye out for them. (Trail Difficulty - Easy)
