Hazard tree removal will block access to Dark Lake

Those who want to visit Dark Lake over the next couple of weeks are having to hike in.

Forest Service Road 2066-600, which provides access to Dark Lake and Camp Tamarack, has been closed while contractors conduct tree removal work as part of the Suttle Lake Vegetation Management Project. The work started on August 10, and the resulting closure is expected to last for approximately two weeks.

During the closure, visitors can access Dark Lake by parking at Scout Lake Day Use Area and hiking approximately half a mile on the Two Lakes Trail.

The Suttle Lake Vegetation Management Project provides treatment and removal of dead and dying trees or trees showing signs of future failure within organizational camps, campgrounds, and along roads in the greater Suttle Lake area. Contractors started work in May 2020.
