It is about 10 km one way from the Norrish Cr FSR . There are huge cross-ditches on a steep grade ; unless you have big clearance you won`t get far driving . Most of the road has some alder . A couple of years back friends of mine managed to get most of the way with quads but it took a lot of work to get over Rose Cr -- the bridge has been pulled .
Crossing Rose Cr.
Area where most of the road has slid into the creek .
We were in there Nov 6 2012 on what seemed like the wettest day of the year , hence the poor photos . We drove in about 1.5 km .
That is the one . Basically follows the old road to within a couple of hundred meters of the lake . You can also get to another small lake by going to the end of the road and crossing the divide into the Cascade Cr drainage .
The only fish hatchery in the area is at the east end of Bell Rd. . The Norrish Cr FSR starts 1 km west of that . The Rose Cr road turn-off is at about 6.5 km according to the signs , just past the filtration plant of the Norrish water system and before you go through the electronic gate with all the "keep out" signs .
Hello! My boyfriend and I just tried to get to the lake today. We were going to camp here overnight but we kept Hitting dead ends. We turned left at the water treatment plant and made it to the top of a mountain then it was a complete dead end and we had no idea where to go. Did I go the right way and if so where did we go wrong? We don't have a GPS unit we were using Google maps and a topographic map I downloaded. Any help would be great as I really wanted to find this lake ☹️ wasted 4 hours and 10km later. Got a great hike in but really wanted to reach the lake and stay overnight. Might end up picking up a GPS because. Thanks!
Yeah I looked here before I went. Was never able to make it to rose creek it was just a massive valley all logged out and a really steep drop. There was no way I could get down there with my backpacking gear
