The trail on the way up was very nice. The lookoff at the top was overgrown so there wasn’t much of a view

Under kept and almost no signage. Lovely hike but had a difficult time understanding what way to take. There were very few indications that we were going the right way. When we got to the actual trail for the Hoover lake it was very under kept and over grown. Couldn’t find the actual lookout. Still a very nice hike.

Majority of the trail is on a logging road. Only the last bit is on a trail, and it's fairly difficult to follow. Lake was pretty though.

Lots of criss-crossing trails, nice scenery but not spectacular, noise from logging nearby and gun range, relatively easy, watch for bikes

Most of the trail is a logging road, and the lake at the end is very beautiful! Very nice short hike.

Great short hike with my dog and daughters! Well marked and maintained trail. A few mosquitoes but beautiful view points.

Good hike, good elevation gain and a nice, quiet lake at the end. Had lots of fun at the floating peat island. Saw bear tracks, would recommend a bear spray to be safe.

This hike is very beautiful. I only had time to do the BTLC loop (thinking the main hike was 5.5 in total, which is actually the distance to the viewpoint) but it was super well maintained and shady. I recommend the early morning as the gun range is close by and it is quite quiet until 9am. I would say this loop is on the easier side of moderate; however, it makes a great hike on the steeper areas, and a trail run on the flat areas. This loop took me about 1:45 minutes to complete.

Fabulous trail once you start to the lake ... first 3km is a gradual climb up a forest road ... no bear scat seen. Saw a deer, lots of bird and flora. Lake is beautiful and serene with lots of fish jumping and a belly boater out there

Lots of options of side trails, mostly trees with an occasional walk along a logging road. Backside was clear cut.... not sure why. Development? Pine beetle kill? Don’t know. KEEP EYES and EARS OPEN for bikes that come down trails and be prepared to step out of the way.

Nice hike once you get to the forest section past the logging road, which is not the most exciting place to walk. There is little shade along the logging road. The lake was calm/quiet, with a couple decent spots to get close to the water. Some people were fishing, but no one had caught anything by early afternoon.

This trail looks awesome for mountain bikers but much less so for hikers. There is active logging in the area and you see clear cuts and logs. And the gun club at the bottom kills the vibe with constant noise. Not my kind of hike.

Take a logging road all the way to the lake turn off. The lake trail is short, but nice. You can prolong the enjoyable part by finding the trail that goes almost completely around the lake. Gives different views. Then take a left when you come off that section and you can reach a viewpoint of Stave Lake. It's an area you kind of need to just go explore while following any logging closures if applicable. The wildflowers are lovely in the spring and it's a good snowshoe trail at some points during the winter.

This path was mostly well maintained, you get a great view at the top. There are so many connecting trails that it's easy to miss the one intended, but they all lead the same places anyways it easy to get around. I thought that the trail was a little more geared toward MTN bikers, I saw a few, but they were very respectful and us as well to them. I was able to keep my dog off leash pretty much the entire time as there wasn't much traffic.

We couldn’t seem to stay on this specific route. But there are lots of trails and fun place to explore. Enjoyed the view near to top of the road :)

Nice 2 hour round trip. Cross checked with Trailforks for maps. Lot of waterfalls along the way after all the rain. Do not forget about the gun range at the bottom.

Nice trails and always quiet but that is because the Mission red neck shooting range is right beside the trail system. One particular booming rifle goes off approx every 2min ALL DAY, everyday. If you have a dog that is even slightly afraid of loud noises I would stay away from these trails.

Easy trail as it’s it’s mostly a logging road for first 3km, steady incline so you get a bit of a workout if you go fast. Last 0.7 the trail goes to left and you enter a forest trail which is more interesting with little bridges. Short walk through the forest brings you to the lake which was still frozen today. Not sure I’d do again as I find the logging road portion boring.

Wide Forest logging road most of the way in (at least 3km), with little reprieve from incline. Trail veers to the left just past 3km ... thankfully there were tonnes of markers, as a lot of trees were down and visibility wasn’t the greatest. The trail was narrow and steep in a few areas so navigation was a little tricky at times; slippery (to be expected) and really thick mud. Only encountered a few people, but the two off-leash and uncontrolled dogs midway back down the road did not add to our enjoyment at all (my dog was leashed). The logging road was hard on knees heading back to the car... I wouldn’t recommend this hike unless you’re accustomed to strenuous upward climbing, and your knees can handle considerable impact on the way down ... best part of the hike was solitude, vitamin D and calorie burn. Wouldn’t do it again.

Cranks/corral loop is a great hike! Dogs can be left to explore a bit as it’s not a busy trail

One of my go to’s for a quick workout with a great view!

Steady altitude gain up forestry service road to short 0.7 trail through the forest to the lake. Lovely spot- looking forward to going back in the summer.
