The Kachess Lake Shore trail is a short, one-mile jaunt along Kachess Lake, good for campers in the summer or a short snowshoe in winter.

The route is quite flat, with views of Kachess Lake and I-90, as well as the surrounding mountains to be enjoyed. In winter, it's relatively navigable, but reports indicate that the trail is brushy and overgrown in the summer.
