Parking is at the Primrose Trailhead at approximately Mile 19 of the Seward Highway. Turn onto Primrose Road and go about a half mile to the end of the road. Nice views of Kenai Lake and the mountains on the east side of the highway. There's a small U.S. Forest Service Campground near the trailhead with maybe 7 campsites. Vault toilets are at the trailhead. There also should be a small map of the trail. Head out on the Primrose trail. Snowmachines are allowed on the Primrose Trail in season. After maybe a half mile, there will be a sign for Long Lake. If you don't turn left, you'll continue on towards Lost Lake and in about 19 miles, you get to the southern end of the trail. But for Long Lake, take this left turn. From this point on, snowmachines are not allowed. Mountain bikers use this trail in summer. Trail meanders through the woods and you reach the lake after about 2.5 miles of total walking. If you continue past the Long Lake, the trail continues on to Meridian and Grayling Lakes and the Grayling Lake trailhead on Seward Highway.

Nice trail but you never actually go to the lake - just near it. It’s all overgrown and inaccessible.

We had a great hike to Long Lake through a beautiful forest. The trail meanders along to the lake. This trail would also make for an awesome trail run. I had a gaggle of kids with me and our one negative was that we couldn’t actually access and enjoy the lake. The only discernible spot to get to the lake was such a small opening that we almost missed it. Luckily, you can hike back to your car and end your hike with a little frolic in Kenai Lake.
