Hazel Lake is a small (7.6 acres), semi-remote glacial cirque lake located near the Idaho border in the Ward Creek (St. Regis River) drainage at 5,371 ft elevation. The lake lies on the Lolo National Forest (Superior Ranger District).
|Directions||Hazel Lake can be accessed one of two ways. One way is to take Exit 26 off of Interstate Highway 90 to USFS Road #889 (Ward Creek Road). Take this road approximately 6.3 miles to the trailhead for USFS Trail #262. Take Trail #262 for ~1.3 miles, then Trail #280 for ~ 0.8 miles to Hazel Lake (fairly steep hike). The other option is to take USFS Road #282 (Little Joe Creek Road) from St. Regis, MT to the Idaho border. Once you reach the Idaho border, take USFS Road #391 northwest ~ 4 miles to the upper Trail #262 trailhead. From the trailhead, proceed down (north) to the Trail #280 junction (same one as above). Hazel Lake lies ~ 0.8 miles from the junction on a relatively steep grade.|
