Fish Lake Trail
Fish Lake at end of the trail
The Fish Lake trailhead now continues into the Columbia
Plateau Trail to a Cheney trailhead and that trailhead continues to an
Amber Lake trailhead and that continues to a Martin Road trailhead. All these
trailheads have services like restrooms, maps, possibly water.
Bring water as this area is hot in summer. There are two places where you might lose the trail without some awareness, as I did. <s> In about two miles the rail-trail goes into the forest turning into a single track. If you follow this it will dead end. Go back to where the rail-trail hits the road and you will see there used to be a bridge across the Marshall road and that the rail-trail continues across the road at a level about 15 feet higher than the road. The other place is at about the 8 mile point where if you go straight you will almost immediately run into the convergence of two active railroad tracks. Back up a little and cross the right track looking towards Fish Lake and then turn back to the left and you will see your rail-trail continuing on and soon you will be at Fish Lake.
