    Default Is anyone familiar with surprise lake, Peirce county, Washington?

    It's near the clipper mines. About 10 miles NE of the fairfax bridge. I just want to know if the small hidden lakes around there are safe to swim in. They're all surrounding mines.

    The only "Surprise Lake" that I know of that's in Peirce County is located between Milton and Edgewood...nowhere near the location you are asking about, and I just checked with Google Earth so I think the lake you have in question may have a different name. Can ya narrow it down a bit?

    I figure if I can catch trout in it I can fish it. I have caught several decent trout out of that lake, and have swam in it. It would be quite a hike, but is a nice drive in a jeep. Any smaller 4x4 could do the trail but a little ground clearance is recommended.
