Elevation 6607.0 ft.
Directions Access to Upper Oregon Lake can be obtained by taking USFS Road #320 (Cedar Creek Road) from Superior, MT for ~19 miles. Opposite USFS Road #7763 is a short (half-mile) road that goes south to the head of Trail #109. Lower Oregon Lake is less than 0.5 mile up this trail. Continue up this trail, past Middle Oregon Lake for ~ 0.75 mile to reach Upper Oregon Lake. The last 0.5 mile will require off-trail hiking in steep and brushy terrain. Another option is to take USFS Road #320 to the Idaho border and the Stateline National Recreation Trail (#738). Take Trail #738 approximately 1.5 miles southeast, and descend to the lake. There is no official route from Trail #738 to the lake.
