Tucked deep in the Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest, Ivanhoe Lake is accessible via the Middle Fork Snoqualmie River Trail from the west or the PCT and Dutch Miller Gap 1362 from the east side.

Set in bluffs and beautiful meadows, Lake Ivanhoe is a nice destination, but a difficult one to access. It's more than 14 miles from the Cathedral Pass or Salmon La Sac trailheads the junction with the Pacific Crest Trail, and then another 3.8 to the lake outlet. 

A bridge 3.5 miles from the intersection of the Pacific Crest Trail has collapsed and made the trail past this point inaccessible to stock. There are no campfires allowed within half a mile of Lake Ivanhoe.
