Just off of Big Moose Road and right around the corner from the Moss Lake Loop, the 5.5 mile trail around Cascade Lake is full of old forest, lake views (best from the old camp), a 40-ft waterfall, and even some history.  While ambling through the Pigeon Lake Wilderness you’ll find remnants of Lake Cascade Camp - an old girls camp that was nestled on the northern shore of the lake. Built in the 1930’s, the camp was used until the mid 1940’s and the trail follows the same path once used by campers. A stone wall lines portions of the trail, an indication of earlier days.  At some point along the trail, about halfway around the loop, you’ll hear the crashing water of Cascade Falls. A short and well-worn side trail will take you to the 40-ft waterfall, a great spot for a snack break! With several stream crossings (with bridges) and side trails to spots like the Chain Ponds Trail and Queer Lake, the loop around the lake has a lot to offer.
