Great hike!!

Great trail! Nice views of the lake and small islands! Wish we had time to do the Matheson mountain trail as well! Some good ups and downs! I will definitely be back!!

on Matheson Lake Loop

A nice lakeside loop. Good to take the family.

I did the loop up to Cougar Bluff and took the Galloping Goose back to the parking area before Matheson Lake Rd vs following the map listed here around the lake: gorgeous area, lots of little lookouts over the lake and an incredible view of Matheson lake when you get to the bluff. Definitely not difficult, however there were some downed trees from the wind storm the night prior and the trail is quite rocky with plenty of tree roots

Great little walk around the lake, jumping over puddles, and following a rocky creek. Take the entrance to the left to start the loop anti-clockwise and finish at the lake! Also accessible along Galloping Goose trail.

A good trail with son challenges along the way. Walking during winter months means some flooding and mud so dress appropriately.

love it. scenic. I hike this loop at least once a week. The water is awesome for swimming in August too. Hike takes about 1 hour going slow, 45min going fast

Good hike around the lake with some great viewing areas. Some areas have many goat trails that take you away from the main trail. As noted, the west end has quite the elevation change.

Easy hike with a few hills ... some slippery spots on rocks if recently rained. Good shoes and you’re fine. Didn’t see a soul the entire trip around. My dog loved it

Beautiful hike

The trail is pretty flat except a all portion near the peak. Took a detour along the creek, and it’s quite peaceful.

This was a beautiful hike. Very easy for our family

Hiked halfway around Matheson Lake, took the creek trail (little muddy, but not too bad) over to Roche Cove, then hiked up to Galloping Goose and back onto the Matheson loop trail. Wasn't that bad of a hike if you don't mind a few small hills.

Nice trail, moderate but doable with baby backpack, some rocky scrambles. Second half has lots of ups and downs. Highlight was lake view of partially frozen lake. Friendly hikers not too busy in the morning.

great trail loop - gets busy so little more difficult with a dog beauty swim

nice loop around the lake

Loved it!

Great hike! You can take half of this trail and half of Matheson loop trail to make it longer if you want.

Shaded, challenging enough at times to be interesting, beautiful surroundings
