Hiked up to Hemple lake today. There is no trail for this lake. You have to have some skills with a map and compass or GPS to find this. The lake was a little more than 5 acres. There was little signs of people and almost no litter at all. Says Sparkle Bear
Any time is a great time at Hempel Lake if you have a thing about the outdoors. If you want to take a ride on a horse Skyland Ranch is in the vicinity. Now, you may think that's plenty but there's
even more entertaining stuff to do here in the Northern Cascade Range. A fine nearby hotel is BEST WESTERN Sky Valley Inn, and hiking is a popular thing to do around Hempel Lake; Finney Peak Trail is a splendid local trail.
