Perfect hike for kids and beginners. Nearly flat, gorgeous scenery, and a quiet lake. But OMG the mosquitoes in July! Would love to do this in the fall before the snow because the swarms of mosquitoes detracted a bit from the hike. They don't care about biting through OFF or clothing!

A definite favorite for my family with little kids.

It is a beautiful hike, but the trail from Paradise Park isn't easy to follow. Spent most the time off the trail using a compass to keep our bearings. The lake is beautiful and the fish are also.

Nice trail and beautiful arches.

Easy hike took less than 30 mins. Con... Mosquitoes all over the place and OFF doesn't phase the little F'ers...

Don't let the two miles fool you. This trail is more hard than moderate. Take plenty of water. We had to take several breaks but our younger children did make it. Just about the point I was sure we weren't on the right trail I saw some hikers coming down and the lake was just beyond the trees.

We went on the trail late June and it was quite wet, with most the trail being a water flow. It was however a beautiful hike and worth it. Bring snacks, we forgot ours.

Troup 250 hiked this trail the 3rd week of July, 2015. We started at the west fork of Whiterocks and 50 miles later came out at Uintah Canyon. It was hard but the scenery was spectacular!

I was not too impressed. i was trying to do an overnighter up to red lake. I made it to Teepee Lake with no problem and decided to push on to Red Lake. About a mile past Teepee the trail just disappears. Camped out in the only suitable spot I could find, glad I had a bivy. From about Teepee to where ever I made it to the mosquitoes were ridiculous and I probably now have Zika virus. If you are looking just to get away from people I recommend. If you are looking for cool views situated alongside high mountain lakes don't waste your time. Although I never made it to Red Lake so who knows. Good Luck.

Great trail and an easy morning hike.

Toddler friendly. Short. Beautiful!

it was awesome it took us a while to find it because there aren't any signs at the turn off

Beautiful easy trail.

Hard work but worth it. An outfitter told me it is 11 miles one way. Seemed like 20.

Very scenic trail with well-marked path. Nice payoff at Ruth Lake. Easy hike.

Have loved this hike ever since I was a kid! Pretty trail and fairly easy, good for kids and adults. The lake at the end is gorgeous and fun to fish, but can get crowded on the weekends. My family usually goes farther to other lakes, but the trail peters out around Naomi lake and you have to bushwhack to other places. Great day hike or beginner backpacking as the lake has some good camp sights.
