I really enjoyed this hike, beautiful view points all along the trail up to Lost Lake and the lake itself is absolutely amazing. The hike is well worth it! Only problem I had was all the sharp rocks on the trail ripped the crap out of one of my dogs paw pads, I thought I was going to have to carry her back down the trail. A couple rips on the other dogs, but he didn't fair as bad.

Nice, moderate hike with a beautiful payoff. Well worth it, and easy to squeeze in a day.

Did this today and I was very glad that I had my micro spikes and trekking poles! The trail was about 90% covered in snow which made it challenging, but as always, the view was worth it!

Lost Lake is definitely worth the hike! So serene. The hike up wasn't too bad, but very rocky..definitely wear shoes with a good grip because the way down can be tough especially with wet shoes from the streams you have to walk through to get up and down the trail. Lots of dogs and families along the way :) Would highly recommend!

Great hike. The waterfall at the halfway mark is a nice feature. Lots of dogs and very family friendly. Though definitely not easy for little ones. Consider making the waterfall a turnaround point if you have young kids. We saw a beaver swimming in the lake.

Beautiful views. So much snow it was nearly impossible to stay on a trail but if you just follow the water you'll make it to the top. And that is totally worth it. The view from the lake is breathtaking!

Beautiful trail! Steady incline of loose rock up to the lake but it is totally worth it. There was a moose lake side today too.

A Beautiful Hike, ending with the perfect lunch spot at the lake. Heavily trafficked, so be sure to keep your dogs on a leash. We got there at 9am(ish) and had no issues with parking.

Gates are closed to trailhead, said will open next Friday 6/16, should be awesome once we can actually go on the trail and it is not under 20ft of snow

Nice short trail. My 9 year old did it, no problem. We used the free shuttle from Nederland to get there. Great views and lake. People fishing at lost lake - didn't see anyone catching anything.
