Stewart and Indian Lakes Cross Country Ski

Stewart and Indian Lakes Cross Country Ski

At the trailhead you need to walk along the road another couple hundred feet to access the trail on the right. The trail immediately crosses a wide bridge and slowly ascends above a small unnamed pond. The trail slowly climbs and never too steeply to the shoulder of Camelhump, which is off through the trees to your left. Soon comes Stewart Lake. The trail remains fairly flat past Stewart Lake before it starts to climb again to access Indian Lake at the end of the trail.

Additional Important Information:

Skiing over a frozen body of water is a cross-country skiing past time; it can access you to areas not seen by most in the summer. With that being said it is a dangerous activity to cross frozen water bodies and should be done with care and respect for your environment. Know the ice conditions and be prepared for anything including heavy winds, snow drifts, whiteouts, slushy conditions, and thin ice.
