This hiking trail has a total elevation difference of 887 feet, and that is lower than average. There is only one trailhead, so you'll be backpacking it in and back out. With its 4.6 miles of walking distance it's a mid length backcountry hike. The time needed for this backcountry hike is roughly 4 hours, but you never know stuff could go wrong and you could get stuck so be prepared for that. Boulder Lake Way Trail stays roughly within the same elevation zone the whole time, so you won’t have to worry about different climate zones along your backcountry hike. At parts of the year this vicinity sees very little rain, so make sure you check current conditions and fire restrictions with local forest authorities before you head out. This backcountry hiking trail is not that long but you should still bring some emergency supplies just in case something happens.
