Slide Lake Trailhead

Provides access to: Slide Lake Trail. The approximate mile long trail, sections of which follow an old abandoned road, is a moderate hike to Slide Lake. Along the route there is a unique geologic view of the collapsed face of Slide Mountain. 

Once at Slide Lake, you can relax, fish, birdwatch, and/or picnic in a lush mixed conifer setting. White fir, incense cedar, ponderosa and lodgepole pine trees offer shade and tranquility. There are also some dispersed camping sites at the lake, making this a good beginner backpacking destination.

Located 40 minutes west of Paisley, Oregon, Slide Lake is a quiet and secluded alpine lake, elevation 5980 feet. There are no amenities at the trailhead except an identification sign. 

There potable water. Visitors need to pack plenty of water. Please "pack it in and pack it out".
