This popular lake can be reached with an easy 2 mile hike where a choice of several well established campsites await you. A great view of Mt Rainier can be had from the west side of the lake. The crystal clear water can make fishing tough; reports of good sized, naturally reproducing Eastern Brook Trout keep anglers coming back to this lake. This lake is located in the Gifford Pinchot National Forest.
From Ashford on Hwy 706, drive ~2.4m east & turn right on Kernahan/Skate Creek Rd. In ~4.6m turn right on FS#84 and then in another 1.2m take FS#8410 - continue another 3.9m to trailhead #251. note: last portion of the road is badly washed out and negotiable for high clearance 4wd only - most should plan on parking lower down. Hike 1/4 mile to Pothole lake then another mile passing Bertha May Lake to arrive at Granite; 600' gain.
