Blind Lake is located on Boulder Mountain in Utah – it is the deepest and biggest lake on the mountain at 52 acres and 52 feet deep. Most people come to the lake to fish for trout, but there the trail itself is great for dogs, kids, and families. It’s only 1 mile to reach Blind Lake, but you can continue on to Pear & Fish Creek Lake, and the Beaver Dam Reservoir.
If you hike to all lakes, the trail will be 6 miles RT. Our pup friend Bear was recovering from hiking the Behunin and Meeks Lake Trail, so I decided to just hang out at Blind Lakes, while my friends continued on. Boulder Mountain has about 60 high-elevation fishable lakes, including Deer Creek Lakes area. While may of the lakes are tiny or run as stocked fisheries, trophy-size trout are not uncommon here in Blind Lake.

The trail starts in the SW end of the parking area.
The trail is very well shaded from Aspens and Ponderosa trees. Copper checks back on us.
Pass by a mucky meadow on your left.
After 1 mile you will reach Blind Lake! Now its time to pick your favorite fishing spot. Be prepared for much cooler temperatures and high winds – even in summer you’ll want to bring a light puffy coat or long sleeve shirt with you.

Such a pretty lake! Blind Lake would make a great quick overnight backpack trip as well.
