This trail is good and hard if you take it from behind the fire station at fallen leaf lake, otherwise you can cheat and drive up to these beautiful lakes that had the feel of a college frat party or a public swimming pool. Great place if you wanna take the kids, drive up and BBQ in a beautiful setting.

Really wonderful hike! It's about 0.75 miles each way. Hike takes you to 2 lakes, the second of which is Angora Lake. Angora Lake is actually a resort that is run by a really sweet and awesome family. Angora Lake is really great for kids because there are no motorized boats, leaving the water pretty calm. There are kayaks, SUP boards, etc available for rent. There is also food/drinks available for purchase on the lake. Great place to spend a day, especially when the weather is nice.

NOTE: the hike to get to the lake is uphill, but we saw children of all ages doing the hike. And trust me when I say that if I made the hike, then anyone can make it!

It's on the easy side of moderate, partly shady, and absolutely beautiful! We arrived about 8:30 am today - Sunday - and the parking areas were pretty packed.

my family and I really enjoyed this hike. Beautiful day today. Saw a coyote. Would have given 5 stars but a small part of trail was inaccessible due to fallen trees and washed out trail due to recent storms

Beautiful! Awesome trail!

But a reminder please follow Trail rules and keep your dogs on a leash. Not everyone else's dogs like to be run up on by other dogs while leashes. no matter how friendly YOUR pooch may be. We had a guy with two dogs who was at least a half mile behind his dogs and he had no control over them whatsoever.
