From the trailhead in Logging Creek Campground, hike northeast through dense forest on Logging Lake Trail. The path parallels Logging Creek as it winds 4.4 miles to the southern tip of Logging Lake. Skirt a campsite with views of the lake and surrounding peaks, and hike northeast around the north shore of Logging Lake. At mile 4.9, pass a side trail on the right that leads to a patrol cabin on the banks of the lake—watch for deer grazing near the trail. Five miles later, pass another campsite on the right. Continue northeast for the final 2.9 miles to Grace Lake, a quiet mountain lake surrounded by the Livingston Range. Set up camp, or retrace your steps back to the trailhead.
