The road to the mountain lake is totally unpaved. It’s fairly bumpy with rocky parts. It’s called Forest Road 240. High clearance vehicles are required but you could take almost any stock vehicle here. The road tops out at 3.663m (12,017ft) above the sea level.

The scenery is worth the trip. The trail has some amazing scenery and the lake itself has some fishing available. The road is subject to seasonal closure during the winter. Starting from Maysville, the road to the mountain lake is 18.34km (11.4 miles) long.
