Took my boys on this trail. It was a great beginner trail for them to get started on. We went on a Thursday evening and there was only one other group of campers on the other side of the lake. We found a good spot in the trees and setup our hammocks. The weather was beautiful and surprisingly, the mosquitos were minimal. I would definitely come here again.

Highly recommend. Beautiful backpacking spot. Lakes all over.

Nice easy stroll, not so much a hike.

As someone who doesn’t love steep or strenuous hikes, this was perfect! It’s a rockier trail in the beginning but pretty flat and you get to water really fast. Brought the dogs who had a great time swimming as we made our way around the lake. It smells like pine and there were Lilly pads on the lake and a beautiful mountain backdrop! Also super secluded, although we went on a Sunday afternoon. Honestly loved it and would happily return!

Beautiful when the flowers are blooming early summer/Late June

It was a great trail for my kids and us to walk. Did explore a lot around the lake and a ton of rocky areas my kids climbed the afternoon away.

Super casual walk, no incline. A lot of people around paddle boarding and fishing.

Did some fishing, too. Caught a few small brook trout.

Went in early on a Friday and hiked by ourselves and it was beautiful... on the way out that afternoon we passed 60+ people. Crazy busy!

This trail is short and easy, you can make it longer by exploring around the lakes. Great for dogs and kids- or out of towners:)

I loved this hike. Nice, easy hike. Felt like much less than the 2.8 miles. My son kept telling me that it's not a hike, it's a walk. Beautiful scenery ... mountains, lake, flowers, trees, birds. And fresh pine scent.

Wow... what a great little trail. I took my girls on it with my youngest being 6. Perfect short little trail for families. I would definitely do it again.

The trail was excellent for young children. Incredible drive and beautiful views! Highly recommend.

One of my favorite hikes, once you get past Ruth lake you encounter very few people and the scenery is breath taking!

Beautiful! A ton of mosquitoes. We ended up going to wall lake as well which was super easy more of a walk.

Short hike but you still enjoy a remote feel and views and have additional access to Naomi and Hayden lakes adjoining Ruth.

If you just want a short trail , not a lot of elevation gain,thats enjoyable and has a beautiful lake as your destination then this is it.
Great to bring visitors that may not be able to hike long distance at high elevations. Perfect to squeeze in if you don't have all day

This was the perfect hike. Downhill to the lakes and the way back up was not bad! Definitely an easy hike you could take your whole family on to get some amazing view of lakes, mountains and meadows. I'm an avid hiker and absolutely loved this trail.

Great little trail. A little bit of snow left here and there on Memorial Day weekend, and pretty muddy in some spots.

The lake is still frozen and surrounded by a couple feet of snow. Good if you want to relive winter in May! The views on the drive up are beautiful!

Nice easy trail that you go mostly down to get to the lake and then have to climb mostly up to get back. My wife thinks that this trail is uphill both ways. Notch Lake is a reservoir so there is a lot a bare shoreline in the fall. Some people like to jump from the cliffs on the opposite side. Bench Lake is also a litter past Notch Lake

This is definitely an easy path. It's flat without any rocky cliffsides to climb/hike through like in Cecret Lake (which is not easy for beginners!). The path is well maintained and has boardwalks. I feel most people can do this trail without much effort. In fact, I wouldn't call this a hike, it's more like a walk! A beautiful one, no doubt!

Excellent trail.( I also Bring a paddleboard in warmer months!) Flat, easy, shaded and nice. Very quiet and stick around for their evening shows on the weekends.
