Wide trial, part Old Rim Road, part bike trail. Lots of solitude but not a ton of shade. The lake was beautiful and a good destination to hike to and rest at. Missed a few turns so keep your eyes peeled.

Fair amount of shade from the trees and the creek is pretty. But, there is a mile or so that is literally covered in horse poop.

Enjoyed the west side of the trail and the views. The east portion of the loop offered no variety of scenery and limited shade due to the thinning project.

Kind of a boring hike. crossed the dirt road too many times. Do the Spring Trail, it is close by and much more scenic.

We have been in the White Mountains now for 11 days and this is the best hike so far. Definitely hike counter clockwise. That way you finish hiking in more shade along the creek. We saw a beautiful black wild horse.

Beautiful trail. We went clockwise and the first half is prettier. Stopped to check out the Bald Eagle observation monocular and spoke with the guy monitoring. Saw Mom feeding her eaglets. Awesome. Relaxing easy two hours ( would have been less but kept stopping). Lake was getting busier when we left yesterday at 9.30am.

Love this trail!!! Beautiful hike around a wonder lake!!! If you start on the trail west of the store there's also a trail to walk up with an Eagle's nest .

It used to be a beautiful trail however it looks like the forest service has let loggers in there and bare and they literally have just cleaned it out very disappointing
