This is such a great short hike to a beautiful area! The trail to Lake Evan is very short - .1 miles. Boardman Lake is another .7 miles beyond and has some elevation gain, but is fairly easy. The trail was a small creek the day we were there as it was POURING!

There were mud holes and lots of water the whole way. Thank goodness for waterproof hiking boots! We walked to both lakes and ate a quick lunch standing under a tree at Boardman Lake and headed back to the car. We were surprised to see a couple of other cars at the trailhead being mid-week and wet! Don't forget your NW Forest Pass as you will need to display it in your car at the trailhead. If you don't have one, you can purchase one at the Verlot Ranger Station on the way to the trailhead.
