Lovely hike with moderate but frequent elevation changes. Our kids (4,10,&12) did great on the trail. The dogs loved it too! Wonderful colors in autumn.

Mosquito city! Beautiful, but definitely bring bug spray!

Be prepared for mosquitos. They nearly carried us away. We had to abandon the trip early.

Nice trail mostly through trees. Trailhead is near the first lake parking lot and was relatively easy throughout. It ran near a couple water falls and streams, there was a couple switchbacks and a point that you had to step on rocks over a stream. There are a couple of other loops you can take if you wanted to make it longer.

Started out steep. Great single track with some brief technical sections. Trail system is comprised of several loops with in loops.

Not a ton of scenic lookouts and mostly walking through the woods. The lake area is beautiful though and there are a couple waterfalls off the trail.

Very pretty, easy, scenic hike. We found two beautiful waterfalls, neither of which are directly on the trail. One of which you have to hike down a very steep section and cross the creek to get to but well worth it!
