One of the days while in Cascade, Idaho we drove up to Snowbank Mountain and found this beautiful high mountain lake. There is a nice one mile trail down to the lake . It is well worth the time to take the drive.
The drive up Snowbank was uncomplicated, following NF-446 all the way to its end. This was our first time on one of Idaho's many National Forest Service roads, and it wasn't nearly as rough as we had feared. Not all the NFS roads are as well maintained, particularly as you get away from population centers. But NF-446, while unpaved, was smooth and easily large enough for two vehicles.
We started our ascent in the morning, and enjoyed spectacular views of Cascade's Long Valley awakening to vibrant life in the strengthening sunlight. The scene from the top of Snowbank Mountain was magnificent. We passed by an FAA Radar Station and parked next to an antenna tower where we took in a panoramic view which stretched out over Lake Cascade, extending for miles in every direction.
