Most of the time the trailhead is about three miles from a locked gate, but it was open on 8/18 probably for hunting season. The trail is not maintained and despite some cairns and plastic ribbon on bushes it can be hard to follow in places. There is a lot of blow-down crossing the trail. The trail is still in use and we met another couple. It is a fairly hard 9.4 miles. There are a few, but not a lot of views.

Did not make it to the trailhead. The road off of highway 140 has a private property access gate (11/23/2018) that is closed to vehicles but is open to foot traffic. Didn't make the trek on the closed road by foot and opted to access by Varney Creek instead.

The end result is amazing! The trail itself is a little hellish. You definitely need a machete to get through some of the over growth. There are fallen trees all over the trail, so bad in spots that you have to find a new way through. Some places, the trail disappears and you have to search for where it starts up again. This slowed us down a lot! There are pink flags, blue markings about half way, and sporadic cairns to help guide you. Thanks goodness for those because without them, we would have never made it through! According to an old cowboy we met on the way out, moss creek is an abandoned trail that is no longer maintained by the forest service. He was shocked to see us there. We had the lake completely to ourselves but there were signs of previous campers. The lake is small and it’s easy to hike almost completely around the lake in just a few minutes. The lake is shallow and crystal clear. The water is cool and refreshing. Moss creek is beautiful as well. If your wanting to get to Lake Harriett but don’t want to get lost in the woods, I suggest taking the Varney creek Trail. It’s maintained and easy to hike.

Definitely need a 4x4 to get to the trail head. Very rocky in the beginning. Easy to follow as trail was well marked with flags but will take a while to get to the peak due to all the fallen trees. Beautiful scenery being deep in the woods.

Hard to get to, need capable 4x4 vehicle. Definitely a challenging hike with a steep begging. Lot of fallen trees to go over, under and around. Follows and crosses creek a few times. It is worth the hike because the lake in the end is magnificent. Great view and crystal clear water to refresh in.
