Great trail! My friend & I day hiked in with our dogs. The colors are so beautiful right now. the hike starts off with a decent incline and levels off to a big open valley before a final smaller incline up to the lake. There's an option to hike to the upper lake as well. There is also a waterfall about 1.5 miles in if you go off the beaten path. Nice Idaho gem.

Did this trail as an overnight. Saw a few other hikers and Hunters. Everyone was very polite and had great trail etiquette.
The hike itself is a constant incline so if anyone you are going with isn't in decent shape it will be strenuous and potentially slow going. The views are totally worth it a highly recommend. There is a bear box provided which was very appreciated. At the lake there are limited options for pitching a tent so get there first if it's a popular weekend.

Three of us and a dog hiked to the lake in the late afternoon and had a great hike with lots of shade. Arriving at the lake we found only one fairly level spot to put a small tent. We dropped packs and boiled some lake water. I set off with the dog to scout around the lake for a more level spot to pitch a tent. On the opposite side I did find a level spot just big enough to put two small 2 person tents side by side. We did not see anyone on the trail on the way and had the lake to ourselves all night. The wind was really crazy all night long. Did not have any trouble with bugs near the lake at all. Was awakened by my dog growling at something outside the tent. I made some noise and calmed the dog down and went back to sleep......no further problems. Don't know what it was, but it left. Hiked out in the 8 am time and encountered 2 separate hikers on the trail out. Hiking boots that FIT CORRECTLY are a MUST on this trail or the toes will take a beating on the decent out. This was another great hike to an alpine lake I highly recommend. We went on Labor Day weekend and still had the lake to ourselves all night!

This was easily accessed from highpoint trail. Scout trail goes out an opposite direction adding unnecessary length. Just a note scout trail is Bernard peak trail. This was lengthy. Clocking in at 17.4 miles. Little steep at first then a easily done moderate gain after that. Several nice views along the way. About 2/3 the way you hit your final view point then turn back to start some switch backs. After this final view point there is nothing to see. At the very top are the remnants of the old fire tower. But nothing else. Trees obstruct all views at the top. I’d stop at the last view point unless you need a work out. Do note you can easily drive to the peak as well. The road has been cleared for vehicle travel. With
Easy accessibility comes the broken glass, trash, and shell casings at the top. Highly disappointing.

bugs have mostly died off! amazing area. the hike has a very steady incline... pretty easy on the knees

Such a fun hike! Beautiful views and well maintained trail. Rocky terrain, uphill the entire climb. 2.5 miles one way.

Great hike very scenic. Trail was nice easy to navigate. Only wish I had brought gear to stay the night as it would be a good overnight spot.

Steady grade up. Take a dip in the river at the bottom.

i took three friends and my dog on this hike today. My second time, their first. The trail was in pretty good shape, a bit overgrown in places but manageable. Upon reaching the lake we were greeted by wind, fog and a temp of 41 degrees. We had planned to eat our lunch at the lake and explore but the weather curtailed those plans. I was disappointed as my previous trip was in June 2017, and the day was beautiful, great to explore the area and have some lunch. Have to go back!

great hike and very gradual elevation gain. there are excellent place to camp and the snow is pretty much gone. I would recommend a fly pole because there is plenty of good fishing.

Just hiked this weekend. very smoky unfortunately, but still a great hike. Cairns were helpful once you get to the rock slabs on top. the trail was very well maintained, and we were able to find a beautiful camping spot with a gorgeous view of the lake. the lake was refreshingly ice cold, and felt amazing after the trek up.

Just completed a few days ago with a 12-year old and a dog...nice hike. Distance is short, but completely uphill...nearly zero flat portions. Basically walking 2.5 miles uphill to a mountain lake. It was worth it. No need to pack in days worth of water, as the lake itself is crystal clear. Would recommend this to anyone for an overnight hike. Simple down and back. Took 2 hours up, just over an hour down. The single lane dirt road is a lot easier to navigate in a pickup/SUV.

I did this on Aug 21 and saw no one else. To clear up where to start the hike....A few yards west of the Stevens TH drive the road that heads south. 0.3 mile up the road switchbacks to the right and there’s a wide area to park. The trail goes south from this curve. If you continue on the road be warned that there is no place to turn around for about a mile ( I did explore this.). About 1.1 mile up there is a waterfall and a side path leads to its base. The lake is 2 miles from where I parked . Trail was in good shape but overgrown in spots. Did see raspberries but no huckleberries yet. The grade is moderate and it took me about 90 min with photo stops to reach the lake. Overall a nice hike for exercise and solitude.

Hiked it in June 26, 2018. Still some snow in the trail, but the views were spectacular! This will be a once a year hike for us.

One of the most amazing hikes I’ve done in Idaho. Worth the climb!

Just completed my first time to Beehive Lake and I can tell you...beautiful lake. It was almost exactly 4.5 miles into the lake and the same out. Trail is good, some spots narrow with brush and last half mile up a rock face...but well marked with cairns. I will tell you...moderate is a little forgiving for this hike. I am 47 and in average shape, and this was a tough hike in...but swimming in the lake made it worth the hard work. Not a lot of camp sites, but worth making it an overnight trip...star gazing was incredible and so was the fishing! Highly recommend for those in decent shape, looking for high mountain swimming, fishing and star gazing!

This lake is absolutely beautiful and secluded. The hike there was really tough though. There are little to no switch backs and almost the entire way there you are hiking up at a steep incline. The entire hike to the lake is up, which means the hike back down was a breeze. We were the only ones at the lake. We swam and did catch and release trout fishing. Caught just over 20 trout, mostly cutthroat, all under 12 inches, but still fun for catch and release.

Beautiful hike! Beautiful lake. Nice mix of of up hill and some nice flat spots too. We thought it was about 8 miles round trip even though it says it’s 5.7 my body says it was longer.

great hike! highly recommend for hikers!

I've been wanting to hike this a while and it did not disappoint. Moderate or Difficult is a relative thing. It was my first hike in a while and that last mile up was not easy for me. However, my wife and son breezed right up. Good wake up call to get my endurance back and start running again. Anyway, it's a very nice hike with great views of Chimney Rock and then Harrison Lake at the top. You'll scale some flat rock face so I'd highly recommend good "grippy" trail shoes. No tennis shoes or open toed hikers.

We clocked 7 miles even round trip. Beautiful hike with an abundance of views! Not overly crowded. In fact mid-afternoon on a Sunday and we only shared the lake with two other hikers. Bring a suit and jump in and stay awhile, you've earned a swim after that elevation gain. We weren't sure how to get to the second lake but heard/read it was a scramble over the ridge so we opted to save that experience for a day we had more time. My only advice is to watch for the cairns and follow them when granite takes over trail. They are there for a reason and will lead you right to the lake.

If youre looking for a nice day hike this is definitely one to consider. There was a lot of people there and the t rails lead through everyone's campsites so expect people to walk by you if you're camping. The trail, as mentioned before, has a lot of loose rock. Just pay attention on the way back down. The hike was easy up, nothing too crazy.

This trail certainly earns it high rating, but as previous commenters have mentioned, it is not for those that may be out of shape or injured. It is roughly 5.7 miles up, and the same distance down, and while the ascent is , for the most part, gradual, there are some long rock faces you have to cover, and the trail was marked by cairns (rock piles) when we went up. Aside from this section, the trail is mostly shaded, but can be hot in summer time , so bring water, and a filter if you want to fill up at the lake. Beehive Lake itself has some amazing vantage points, as there are some impressive sheer rock faces creating a backdrop to the water, and then where the creek flows out are some lookouts that give expansive views of the valley of Pack River, and the Roman Nose peak area. There are campsites by the lake, but some of the ground may be swampy certain times of year, and we did encounter some mosquitoes, so bug repellent may be warranted. The access road is very drivable, even for a generic car, though poor weather may affect this scenario.

Incredible hike.

trail was well maintained and well marked. Impossible to get lost. The road was accessible with any vehicle.

There are 5+ unoccupied camp spots at the top of the lake right now.

Just so you are clear-- the route is 5.7 miles up, and also 5.7 back for a total of 12 miles. Also-- if it is raining this hike would be entirely impassable because of the glaciated rockfaces.

beautiful

Definitely not a hike for beginners, and I wouldn’t bring kids either. Gorgeous views all the way up. There’s loose boulders almost the entire way- I’m thankful I decided not to wear tennis shoes. Some boots with nice traction saved me from a couple ankle twists. About the last mile or so has a steep incline and isn’t marked well but the app was helpful and accurate for us. The lake and views are gorgeous at the end.

great hike, great trail, great views. Lots of hungry bugs.

I would say this is a hard rating. Mostly straight uphill. We had the lake to ourselves which was great.

Looking for an adventure? Look no farther than Harrison Lake in North Idaho. This trail is perfect for all levels of hiker, as well as dogs and kiddos. Ranked as moderate, I found the trail pretty easy aside from the final mile right before reaching the lake. With a good pair of (waterproof) hiking boots and perhaps a good set of trekking poles, the majority of the trail was very manageable. The only problem I encountered was my own...I tend to struggle with dragging my feet which was somewhat of a burden on this trail due to loose boulders and rocks just waiting for you to stub your toes on.

But in all honesty, the Harrison Lake Trail No 217 has a bit of everything. Views of the Beehive Dome, Bottleneck Peak and Roman Nose accompany you on the slight grade uphill through the subalpine fir and spruce trees to the alpine lake a little under two and a half miles ahead. The last mile is a slight scramble up a granite face which could result in confusion with following the trail. Just look for the perfectly placed rock cairns along the way and you can't go wrong.

You'll know you've reached the lake once you start seeing the tents scattered along the trailside. Even in the snow, we saw at least half a dozen campers setting up their sites for the weekend. Wind your way through the random boulders to the water and be sure to take pause to see the clarity of the frigid lake...something I'm sure my pup and I would have been tempted to jump into had it been later in the summer.
