    Definitely not a “hike”, but AMAZING VIEW! Don’t miss this spot. Easily accessible for anyone to enjoy even if you don’t get out of the car or if you have a stroller or wheelchair. Follow the signs to Blue Lake and take the gravel road until you’re right near the dam. You can walk up by the dam (and there’s also some hiking if you pass the fence for the dam but we didn’t do that), or walk down along the lakes. There’s also a hike by the waterfall but we didn’t do that yet. We saw lots of marmots in the rocks, and come early to see MOUNTAIN GOATS!! We saw at least 20 of them along the rocks to the right of the dam when we got there at around 8:15am, but they started climbing higher and higher as cars arrived for the day and then they were beyond view.

    I was able to hike this with a 3.5 month old in an Ergo carrier, plus a 6 year old, but I’d agree with “moderate.” No long range views but some meadows where you can see a little bit. Trail was pretty much all on a small incline. Some rocks/roots to potentially trip on and some tricky areas with loose rocks/gravel on an incline. The best part was at the beginning by the creek, then it just kept going forever.

    5 stars for the chipmunks and the view at the lookout. Other than that, this is just a short walk around a loop and lots of dead trees. I’d be worried taking a smaller child due to the drop offs. The lookout and chipmunks are closest if you go to the left from the parking lot.

    Lots of different things to see and changing landscape. Long range view, meadows, woods, small ponds, streams to cross, and two beautiful lakes at the end. Lilly pad covered lake is first, then the larger lake right after. Perfect place to stop for a snack or lunch. We didn’t get to see any moose, unfortunately. I would also say this is a moderate trail due to the inclines and lots of trip hazard areas with large rocks and roots, but I was able to hike this with a 3.5 month old in an Ergo carrier, plus a 6 year old.
