Woods Lake State Wildlife Area

0

This is a small, beautiful and secluded lake set among mixed-conifer forest and aspen groves. Keep an eye out for typical species of the high-elevation aspen and spruce-fir forest. You might see elk and black bear. The mountain scenery here is spectacular, with beautiful views of Mount Wilson. Rugged trails lead into the Lizard Head Wilderness Area and, eventually, alpine tundra.
