We went in October and there was snow a good portion of the way covering the trail but it was pretty well packed down from previous hikers. Was slick in a few spots. The trail is very well marked to the lake. Beautiful area and gorgeous lake. Would definitely do this one again.

We went in October at the first snow and right off the bat there was a creek that we had to balance on a log to get across, very exciting but my family didn’t enjoy it too much. It was very steep and slippery and seemed to go on forever up hill, still I very much enjoyed this and would love to do that again

Gorgeous trail that leads to an amazing mountain lake. You can continue on to a longer hike around the Boulder Lake Loop. The has some good incline, but definitely doable for any level.

Beautiful little hike. I took my two boys... 7 and 9 years old and they did great! A little rocky and steep in some areas but overall very easy. The lake is great! There is a rock island that you can walk through the lake to. You can jump off the rocks and it’s a ton of fun! The water is deep enough and clear all the way to the bottom! Super peaceful and not busy at all.

Good uphill climb to the lake, the road portion is very little of the total trail and didn’t bother us in the least. Lots of folks do this trail and over fishing has ruined the trout population and made them not interested in flies. Recommend for the beauty of the lake and Mountain View.

Arrived early in the day (9 am) and parking wasn’t a problem...it was a Thursday. By the time we returned, the trailhead had more visitors but still not a problem to park. When arriving into parking lot, go to the far right as the trail takes off from there. Quite a bit of uphill but the journey is worth it to see this beautiful lake. If you wander clockwise around the lake, be prepared for muddy spots. There is one creek that you need to cross on logs (or ford). Loved it!

Took my 9 and 7 year old girls on this hike. Pretty much all up hill to the lake. There is a section that is basically a forest service road that you can cheat and take a UTV or small vehicle to within about a mile of the lake. If you start at the true trail head there is a pretty swollen creek to cross. This year there was serious snow, so crossing on logs was needed. Overall worth the uphill climb. Water is crisp and clear. you won't be alone on the trail so practice good trail etiquette.

I went to see if the trail was accessible yet but the road about 2.5 miles back from the trailhead still has about 2 feet of snow on it and can't be driven on yet this season. Just a heads up.

Great trail that leads to a beautiful lake. As of November 2018, the road leading to the trailhead was open and the well marked trail was easy to follow, even in the snow. Enjoy the views of the lake!

Fun quick hike, Great views.

The views of the lake are beautiful and the trail was well marked, pretty inclined but worth it. Definitely a quick and short hike well worth the views. I would highly recommend continuing on and doing the Boulder Lake loop to really make the hike worth while if you have time.

great day hike!

Nice hike in the fall, with colors. Fairly steady uphill, with a good portion on dirt road shared by road vehicles. Trailhead was a little difficult to find, but it is marked by a sign about 40 yards to the right of a concrete bathroom being installed. Google maps got me to the right place, and All Trails was useful in locating the actual trailhead. My only regret was finding no mention in online descriptions of the road condition to reach the trailhead - fine for Jeeps, trucks, and sport utilities, but not so good for a low clearance road vehicle.

Only a third of this trail is a hiking trail; the rest is a ATV trail/road. This means you’re sharing space and dust with trucks and buggies. It’s a steep up with some good views of granite cliffs. The lake is pretty and gives this another star but it’s man-made and warm so muddy. BOULDER LAKE ROAD IS CLOSED BEFORE YOU REACH THE TRAIL HEAD. YOU WILL NEED TO MAKE A MORE CIRCUITOUS ROUTE THAN GOOGLE MAPS OUT. On the AllTrails app these roads are marked as Jeep trails. They’re a bit rutted but okay. Use the satellite map to see what is truly roads. When at the bottom of the hill the trailhead is to the right.

This is a really great and beautiful hike, but hard to find. The trail which is actually only 4 miles in total was not located where the gps sends you. The best way to go is using directions from google. Once you get to the location on google it is down a road to the right about 50 yards. There is a sign that points out the trail and the trail is pretty well marked. Hopefully this will be helpful because getting there is the hardest part.

Moderate hike with wide and nicely maintained trails. The hike to the lake is uphill for almost the entire time. The hike starts with crossing a river across a few logs, so wear good footwear and be aware if hiking with small children. The lake is beautiful and we basically had it to ourselves, although we found the fish to be elusive that afternoon ;) Overall, a very nice, not crowded hike that I highly recommend.

Gorgeous hike, only takes maybe three hours round trip. In late July to early August there are lots of huckleberries along the trail. The lake is a pretty full of silt, though, so it doesn't make for the best swimming.

The 9.1 miles must be for an ATV trail. The hiking route is 1.4 miles and about 800 vertical. Had to cross Boulder Creek on a log to get started, and then hiking on an ATV trail for much of the way, but no traffic today. Lake is reminiscent of Sawtooth Lake, very pretty.

This was a fun and pretty easy hike! Our 5 year old made it the whole way up and back without any issues. The lake is beautiful and the hike has a lot of beautiful scenery along the way as well. I would highly recommend it for a quick day hike!

Luis lake is beautiful, with lots of fish jumping! No bait. 2 fish, size limits etc. from the entry, you hike a ways and meet up with a logging road. take a left when you emerge and follow the painted rocks. Uphill pretty much all the way there, downhill back. Wear decent shoes or be prepared to take you time to avoid slipping.

This trail is pretty difficult. It is steep all the way up, but the views are well worth the hike. Make sure you follow the logging road all the way to the lake. There are not any short cuts.

Make sure you have mapped out which route you want to take. There are several different trails to choose from & some are more popular than others. Several trails are poorly marked & some end abruptly.
