We did this "hike" yesterday. I tried to locate the trail unsuccessfully a couple of months back and happened upon it hunting by accident. The other reviewers are not kidding when they say it is boulder hoping. My hubby had no trouble at 6'5" scrambling up the boulder field. I am much shorter and found myself locating hand holds to pull myself up through. I am an avid hiker and would definitely rate this trail as difficult. I am a sucker for the alpine lakes though and this hike delivered two! I think it is a must do for this reason but won't feel the need to repeat the experience.

Fun hike, and lots of places to explore once you get to the lake. Very few bugs in late August. The drive up is slow, but worth the trip.

We hiked the trail to Hunt Lake today, beautiful weather and perfect conditions. As many have already stated the “trail “ is basically a massive boulder field. Trail is marked along the way with ribbon. One thing I would like to mention is that while coming down, watch that you don’t go too low and miss the trail head. It’s not marked well. We ended up 100 ft. too low and missed the trail head. Have fun!! Definitely recommended

I love this trail! I did it as a kid and we just took our 7 year old daughter. In the reviews you will see that it’s very difficult and some say it’s okay. The truth is that as long as you understand that you’re getting in to a full on scramble up a large boulder field and make sure you’re prepared and take your time, it’s just fine. My 7 year old got a bit crabby carrying an overnight pack towards the end but she did amazing. Enjoy!

This is a fairly short hike but it’s a doosy boulder hopping. Up is a moderately steep climb and down the boulders may make your knees weak. Be careful not to get an ankle caught in between. But the lake is an amazing destination and achievement. Beautiful views the entire hike. Good camp spots or stay for a picnic and head back.

Trail is rocky and plan on boulder hopping until last couple hundred yards. Trail over the boulders is less than perfectly clear. We discovered some sections of non-boulder trail nearer the creek which were a bit easier. Hiked with a dog who was able to pick his way through the terrain with a bit of effort. Two lakes at the top and the larger one is stunning and amply rewards the climb.

This trail was very strenuous. I would go to a visitor center at Priest (we went to Priest Lake State Park camping grounds) to get specific driving directions. These directions were still not super helpful because the road is so badly marked, but we found our way much easier with these directions than with Google Maps. The trail itself is a challenge. I would not call it moderate and I am a fairly experienced hiker. We went in late May and there was still a TON of snow for about half the hike which made it much more challenging and potentially risky, but the view of the lake was stunning. Stay close to the tree line if you are doing this hike in the winter. There is a very badly maintained trail adjacent to the boulders, but it is hard to find in the snow.

(10.6.18) We followed the GPS to a closed gate that we are assuming is closed do to logging in that area.

PLEASE READ AND DON'T BE ALARMED! :) I couldn't help myself, the last review was a little dramatic, to say the least. Hunt Lake is an "easy" hike in for an alpine lake. I've backpacked this spot four times now and I love it. The road is a little rough and you do need a truck or jeep to get up the last mile of washed out road. The trail in is hard to follow as people have created multiple trails over the mix of bouldering and dirt trails. When you start out the more trail version to the lake is more north of the boulders and the "red dot" trail is right through the middle. If you do follow the red dots on the rocks be sure to head a little north when you reach the incline as the trail takes you up. I'm not sure the last review by Joshua might have been because he got lost and off trail. It really isn't that hard. I see kids out there all the time and we had a 13-year-old with us on this trip who loved it. REAL-TIME REVIEW: We camped Friday and Saturday. The wind was bad Friday night but not Saturday. Saturday night was clear and the stars were amazing but it was cold at night and there was frost in the AM. At this point, I think it could snow up there anytime. I've gone in October and woke up to snow. Take a real axe if you want to have a fire as all the small stuff has been picked over. Good fishing but only really at Golden hour. Have fun and be safe!

PLEASE READ AND UPDATE ALLTRAIL!!! One star for App accuracy! 5 stars for beauty! To begin with, do not follow Google Maps to the trailhead. The road you want is the same road as the “Willow Bay Restaurant”. As of today (8/18/18) logging operations have the normal road totally closed off or dead ended. Take the road past the Willow Bay Restaurant and stay right until you see the first post labeled “Hunt Lake” and an arrow for direction. From that point you will need a fairly high clearance vehicle. (There was a Ford Escape SUV with broken rocker panels because of the depth of the washouts) As far as this app is concerned; it’s useless. The starting point and end point for this trail is correct, but everything in between is off. Ignore the “trail line” in the app completely and just follow the markers (flags and paint marks). The trail itself should really be updated to “hard” or “difficult”. I’ve hiked many trails in the Northwest and done my fair share of rock climbing, and this trail is tough. The ENTIRE trail is on boulders. Okay.... 90% of the “trail”. I use the term “trail” loosely here because what you’re doing is looking ahead to the next marker, and then playing a high stakes game of hopscotch for 1.5 miles. The lake is beautiful and well worth the trip, and know you will never do another hike like this. Just read this and hopefully you won’t get misdirected and burn up most of your day looking for an actual trail.

The hike up was rough to go over all the big rocks with heavy packs on... especially with younger kids and knee injuries in the group. However, on the way down, we discovered there is a trail that is about 75% dirt flagged with red marking tape on the downhill side of the rock field. MUCH easier! It’s only the first few hundred yards from the parking lot that you can’t really avoid the rocks. The lake was awesome!!!

6/24/18 Road has been cleared of fallen trees and is passable. Requires a high clearance vehicle as the last mile or so gets a little rough. Hiked up to Hunt Lake starting at 7am, rocks were a little slick but snow free besides a few easily avoided pockets. After hitting the lake we went around to the west side and headed up the stream to the pass between Fault lake and Hunt mostly covered in snow. Part way we traversed back north on boulder fields towards Gunsight Peak. Went up the saddle just to the south and continued along the ridge. There were a few sections with a bit of exposure that required technical climbing and scrambling. After a few false summits on the ridge we made it to Gunsight Peak. Amazing weather and views. Took a more direct route down talus and avalanche chutes with a little bushwhack back to Hunt Lake. Good times!

Far harder hike (more like climb) than expected but beautiful lake with awesome fishing.

The last half mile or so of the road was covered in snow so my roommate and I walked to the trailhead and went from there. Besides that the road wasn't too bad; my Honda crv had no issues getting as far as we got. The "trail" was difficult and not exactly safe with the snow covering the boulders (as well as the deep spaces between boulders). There were footprints to follow so we decided to go ahead and follow the path of whoever went before us. Fortunately no one hurt themselves. We left our vehicle at 2:00pm and got back before 5:30pm. We ate lunch at Hunt Lake (now frozen) but didn't stay long because it was cold and windy. So if you want the mountains all to yourself and also want to build character, try this hike in late October-- otherwise I recommend hitting it earlier in the fall or summer.

We were looking forward to this hike, but when we reached the point where we had about 10 miles to drive to the trailhead, you need a 4 wheeler to access. Our truck could not make it. Would've been helpful if this was included in the description--hope this doesn't happen to anyone else

It was ok, hike was good, but a lot of biting bugs, trail was tough, but well worth a day hike, camping not so much.

Great family outing! Bring good shoes with good traction, a definite must! Surely feels longer than a mile in and out...a definite workout, but well worth it! Beautiful and serene!

this trailhead is a bit hard to find due to all the branching logging roads. Also a 4 wheel drive vehicle with some clearance is highly recommended for the last few miles to the trailhead! Save some trouble navigating by stopping at the Idaho Bureau of Land Management in Priest Lake to get a current map and info on the road to the trailhead. The hike into the Lake is basically ALL ROCKS. Great hiking boots and a hiking stick are the best way to keep yourself from injury. The route across boulders is marked every so often with painted orange dots and orange arrows. not hard to follow if you look around. There are a few nice camping spots near the lake and the scenery is beautiful. We woke up to rainstorm that soaked EVERTHING and had to negotiate our way back over wet and some mossy boulders which made it more difficult. The length of this hike is well worth it when you gat to the lake! Just don't go when there is a possibility of rain or it changes the desirability and difficulty level significantly. My 14 year old daughter and I completed this hike at the end of August and saw NOONE there at all. Had the place to ourselves.....it was nice.

Unfortunately, 3 miles up the State Park road, the bridge to the trailhead is out, probably permanently. It would take another eight miles on foot to get to the trailhead. We gave up in favor of other adventures.

Very nice mountain lake with views of Chimney Rock and Mt. Roothaan from the back of the lake. Trail is a scramble over the boulders.. route is painted out on the rocks. There is a faint trail at the bottom of the rocks that I find a little easier to follow.
