A 3 mile long trail with a 200′ elevation gain, this is a beautiful one for viewing the evidence left from the powerful Ice Age floods. It starts near Crab Creek, but quickly drops into the drier shrub-steppe habitat. Although so named, Frog Lake no longer exists. A meandering trail winds past basalt formations, then ascends to the top of the mesa for views of the rest of the landscape.
“The trails on Columbia National Wildlife Refuge are considered primitive and may be narrow, overgrown, uneven, steep, and/or unstable. All trails are in areas that are closed between October 1 and March 1 to provide winter sanctuary for waterfowl. Despite that, the Frog Lake Trail remains open year-round, but you must remain on the trail.”
