The Skokum Lake Trail begins in a shelter wood, then enters a stand of true fir. The trail crosses through some rocky open areas and wearing boots with ankle support is suggested. Diamond Peak is visible to the north. Watch for pikas playing in the rocks and look for an abundance of wildflowers that grow in the wet areas along the lake shore. The lake is 10 acres in size and is 20 feet deep, has a good population of brook trout and elk can be seen browsing nearby.
The trail is steep and would be a challenge to experienced mountain bikers.
Directions: From Prospect: Travel northeast on Highway 230 and turn north onto Road 3703, Three Lakes Road, approximately two miles west of Diamond Lake. Continue northwest on 3703 eight miles and turn right onto Road 3703-200, Skokum Lake Road. Follow this road three miles to the trailhead.
