Drive south from Petersburg on the Mitkof Highway. The Three Lakes Loop Road (#6235) meets the Highway at both 10 miles and 20 miles from Petersburg. The three trailheads are about 15 miles from the north end of the Loop Road and 6 miles from the south end. You can also reach the trail by hiking the Ideal Cove Trail from Frederick Sound. A trail profile for the Three Lakes Trail is not included here because the trail is shaped like an 'E', with spurs to each of the lakes and a road running alongside. People can take any number of routes, depending which lakes they want to visit.
