There are several hikes from Alturas Lake. The trails generally have more gentle climbs and follow the creeks that feed Alturas Lake. Some of the trails from Alturas can be biked. Remember bikes can not enter wilderness. Hiking or biking Eureka Gulch, Jake’s Gulch or up towards the Mattingly Divide are all options. Some of these trails are also open for motorized use. Know what trails are open to what modes of travel before you head out! Some trails will eventually enter wilderness.
