    This is a really beautiful hike but be warned, its 2.25 miles of steep to the lake. There is a very short section after about 1.5 miles where it levels out for a few hundred yards but then its back to steep. We hiked this in early June and there was a few patches of snow but nothing on the trail. The wildflowers were in full bloom and we didn't have any problem with bugs until later in the afternoon when the mosquitoes came out but we were leaving by then. Its an amazingly beautiful lake fed by an equally amazing waterfall on the SE side of the lake. There are a number of easy feeder creek crossings as you switchback up the last mile to the lake but they weren't a problem, but they might be any earlier than mid June. Snow pack for this area was very low in 2015. There are a couple of rather hard to get to campsites by the lake but its a rather small lake mostly surrounded by steep hillsides. The trail head is not well well marked but it is very close to another trailhead (Stevens Lake). I made it up the road in a Chevy equinox but would have much preferred something with more ground clearance. There is a toilet and plenty of parking.

    I have hiked to Skitwish creek numerous times but was always turned back from completing the entire loop due mostly to prohibitively high water. On this day I was able to cross the creek fairly easily. There is about a mile of fairly steep switchbacks before the trail levels out somewhat. The trail intersects FSR 202 briefly before a short climb to the highest point on the hike at 3750 feet. After that its a beautiful, fairly gradual descent back to an unmarked road and then to FSR 202 again before reaching the 241 trailhead. I would like to thank the Backcountry Horsemen for an outstanding job of maintaining this trail. I have hiked most of the trails in north Idaho and none are as well maintained as this one. Overall, it was an amazing hike on a perfect day, no bugs and better yet, no people.

    This is a beautiful hike. We did in october right after the first light snowfall and it was a little bit treacherous on some of the steeper sections (and there some rather steep sections). Definitely worth the effort to stand on the cliffs overlooking lake Pend Oreille.
