This was an absolutely amazing hike. The check in point was a great way to gain your barings. I started in the directions of the beach and cabins. I think walking past cabins was pretty cool. Then as the hike continued you gained more and more solitude, which I loved. Gorgeous look at point if you can find it , just a couple minutes after the quartz check point. Highly recommend hiking this lake

Did the trail with our 10 and 6 year olds, it is well marked and generally easy. Only watch out is the blue trail along Turtle Lake - one section at the far end, just before it merges with the red trail, went into the mud after an elevated boardwalk section collapsed. Stick to the red trail, and best to go around the lake in a clockwise direction as this allows you to see the collapsed section just before the trail divides, and go around it.

This is a 4.3 km loop around Buck lake. The trail is a little muddy but very well maintained. Mid way through the trail, there is a small cabin to take shelter in or warm up in during the winter. The trail starts and ends at a nice little beach.

Turtle Lake loop/Clear Lake loop: This trail is a 4.7 km loop around Clear Lake and Turtle Lake. There is a floating bridge between the two lakes, but the loop can be completed without crossing the bridge. The trail is very well maintained and relatively flat with a few rolling hills.

Snowshoeing in March was super. Great trail and very quiet. Small stream crossing at southern point but stepping stones make an easy crossing. Due to snow levels had to park some distance from start Buck lake and made for a much longer walk.

A hidden treasure. My husband and I stumbled upon this trail and then stayed for a week in one of the cabins. it's so peaceful and beautiful. Not challenging, just lovely.

Great little trail to hike. Secluded and beautiful views of the lake. Our dog loves running through the trail and jumping in the water.

Solitaire Lake loop is a 6.2 km relatively flat trail until the lookout rock there is a mildly steep uphill and downhill section. The trail finishes along the road or can be combined with other loops.

This is a very well maintained 2.3 km trail. About 800 meters in, there’s a view of Hickory lake.

The trails here are so well maintained that I’d highly recommend coming here for trail running. This is a 2.1 km loop around High Lake. Around 300 meters in, there was a dry waterfall that would probably look spectacular in the spring.

Granted it was winter, but the trail was difficult to find and follow. The map at the trail head is backwards and largely useless. The river was very cool and worth checking out but the trail didn't seem to follow it.
