Cody Lake - Private and Serene

Earlier this summer we stumbled upon the Cody Creek Trail http://www.blogger.com/blogger.g?blogID=7040674765259617732#editor/target=post;postID=5934434773229515651;onPublishedMenu=allposts;onClosedMenu=allposts;postNum=51;src=postname.

After sharing the story with a girlfriend, she wanted to see it also so we decided to journey there on a day when we had limited time to get some good cardio going.  Although it isn't a terribly long hike, it gets your blood pumping quick.  The trail begins in Strawberry at about 5,600' and climbs to 7,100' in a relatively short distance.

We began at the same spot at the Sciot's Track playground and headed up Masonic Blvd.  We followed the same path as written about in my previous article, but this time instead of forking left towards Cody Meadow, we opted to see what Cody Lake is like.

We huffed and puffed our way to the lake with wonderful views of Pyramid Peak along the way.


When we arrived at Cody Lake we found a beautiful private and serene lake.  It took about 1:15 to get up there and it was worth the effort....especially for our four legged friend, who enjoyed a nice swim while we ate lunch.


I recommend this hike for a day when you have limited time and don't want to travel far.  It would be great on a hot summer day, but was equally nice in the crisp fall afternoon.
