The Horse Lake Trailhead is a large rustic trailhead located about 3 miles from Fish Lake Campground. The facility is set in an open pine area adjacent to the Forest Road 66. The large parking area will accommodate several trucks and trailers.
The trail follows the ridge above Lake Fork Creek which is a beautiful drainage filled with aspen and meadows. The trailhead and suggested overnight camping spot is Fish Lake Campground which offers a view of the Eagle Cap Wilderness area and good fishing in the lake itself.
