This easy trail leads three and a half miles southeastward from Hozomeen Campground to Hozomeen Lake.

The Hozomeen Lake Trail leads three and a half miles one way from the Hozomeen Campground to the lake. The trail gains a total of 500 feet as it leads through gently rolling terrain east of Ross Lake. The lake lies at 2,820 feet.

Begin this hike from the Hozomeen Campground, which lies in the northernmost portions of the park on the eastern shore of Ross Lake. The trail leads eastward from the camping area, following Hozomeen Creek for the first mile. The trail bears right (south) and leaves the creek to follow the eastern base of a ridge line that follows the shore of Ross Lake.

The trail continues along the base of the ridge for two miles to a trail junction. At this junction the trail to Hozomeen Lake bears left. The right side of the fork leads past Willow Lake to Lightning Creek. Hozomeen Lake lies approximately three quarters of a mile east of this junction. There are primitive camping sites on the southeastern shore of the lake. Permits are required to use these sites.
