Posy Lake is hidden within the Grand Staircase National Monument amongst the rough mountain peaks of the Boulder Mountains. Posy Lake is a prime destination for any back country rambler looking for a place to fish, camp, explore, hike, take photographs, ATV, picnic or generally just soak up beautiful mountain country.
Posy Lake is a perfect destination for the casual day trip for those staying in the Boulder or Escalante region as well as overnight camping or extended back country ramblings. It has nice day use facilities including picnic tables and a developed restroom as well as nice camping facilities.
Posy Lakes is Open May through October. Posy Lake has great fishing with a boat ramp and two docks however there is no motorized boating on the small mountain lake. Posy Lake also has access to the trailhead to the Great Western Trail. At 8,600 foot elevation if you’re staying the night remember the temperature drops in these tall mountains. Also scattered showers frequent the Boulder Mountains so make sure you’re equipped to handle a little rain.
I highly recommend the Hells Backbone loop however the road from the Escalante side is rough to say the least. Next time I will take Hells Backbone road just off the 12 on the Boulder side both coming and going. You will not be disappointed with the scenery. This is one back country ramble that I recommend if you are anywhere near the Grand Staircase national Monument.
