Why choose a trail at Flora Lake?

Flora Lake is a remote lake located in the northern environs of Yosemite National Park, California, United States. The lake is located in a rugged environment that is only accessible to intrepid hikers. The lake was once proposed as a cavalry outpost for the U.S. Army as it provided easy access to the northern border of Yosemite. During the early 20th century the U.S. military was burdened with protecting the newly formed National Park System. Shortly after the park's creation, many wilderness outposts were created in order to curb the illegal intrusion of goat herds which shepherds would lead into the park. This activity routinely devastated otherwise pristine valleys. Today the lake offers solitude and beauty that characterize those portions of northern Yosemite National Park and the adjacent Emigrant Wilderness.

The Flora Lake is a beautiful, pristine lake located in the heart of British Columbia's stunning Cariboo region. The lake is surrounded by lush forest and towering mountains, and is a popular spot for fishing, camping, and hiking. The clear, cold water of the Flora Lake is home to a variety of fish, including trout, salmon, and bass. Visitors can enjoy a quiet picnic by the lake, or take a hike through the surrounding forest for a truly peaceful and rewarding experience.
