3/4 mile hike rated more difficult. Trail extends from Shipley Bay Cabin to Shipley Lake where there is a Forest Service skiff for public use. Many species of fish are present in the lake including rainbow trout, Dolly Varden, steelhead, and salmon. Location includes a very scenic valley and leads to views of the Nipples, one of the higher peaks on the outside islands. Trail leads past the cabin along the north shore of Shipley Creek, crosses over a bridge to the south shore, then follows a moderate to fairly steep (for short distances) incline along this shore to the banks of Shipley Bay.
