Lake Creek Orv Tr1443 is a steep ascent from the Entiat River basin past the Lake Creek basin and up to the rugged, angular Devils Backbone ridgeline.
Easy TH access ensures heavy weekend ORV traffic, and the elevation shortens the ride to July-August, so find a nice summer weekday to experience this ride.
Instead of starting this perfectly good ride with an 'epic' 13mi fireroad ascent, either start from the Halfway Spring campground and ride out FR5904, or (for stronger climbers or those willing to do some hike-a-bike) simply start from the Lake Creek campground TH.
Either way, after climbing to the top of Lake Creek Orv Tr1443 and riding Devils Backbone Orv Tr1448 to Angle Peak, either return on Four Mile Ridge Orv Tr1445 or Angle Peak Orv Tr1444 and head back to the TH.
The 18mi FR5904 ride involves 4700' of climbing and offers excellent views of the Pawn Lakes and the Lake Creek basin.
Four Mile Ridge Orv Tr1445 is the more rugged return option, passing Bear Lake then dropping off the angular ridgeline into the basin.
