Hikes to this destination


Wapiki Lake is a deep sub-alpine lake in Indian Heaven Wilderness. It is located in an ancient volcanic crater, and nearby Lemei Rock is all that remains of this long-extinct volcano. The lake is reached by a short 0.3 mile spur trail (#34A) from Lemei Rock trail #34. Surrounding forests abound with huckleberries in late summer and early fall.

From the south shore of the lake you can access several small tarns and Little Lake Wapiki. A use trail leads up a rocky chute to a bench with tarns and heather meadows below Lemei Rock.
