We were camping at pine flats 10/7/17&10/8/17. The park is walk up only meaning it’s open but not maintained. We double checked with the ranger station and they confirmed it was open, just not maintained (no trash collection, water, toilet paper).

I didn't love the lake and the trail was way too rocky. I also wouldn't rate the trail as easy. It was a steep climb, not long but steep. Kids can do it, I took my 6 year old.

Land has been purchased and is now private. We ran into the owner (who was chill) but who mentioned that it was now his land. I would not encourage people to hike here for that reason.

Beautiful trail ends in the lake you can definitely jump in bring a swimsuit you will get to enjoy after the nice hike down. On this trail you do have to hike up in the end so just be ready for that part also because it's says easy but I would say at least moderate to maybe hard.

This hike is great for just a day trip or you can stay longer and explore. The trail to the lake is almost exclusively down hill almost all the way to the lake. There are lots of great spots to swim, fish or just enjoy the lake. Due to the easy access and great views, expect to see other hikers.

Great day trip from Boise, and very quiet - I only saw a few people. The hike is pretty relentlessly uphill on the way up to the lake, which was a nice payoff. Super easy coming back down. The lake is small but lovely. Didn't see any bears but I've talked to people who did on this trail, so I'd recommend bear spray & bring an extra bottle of water.

Super easy hike. We camped there overnight and did some fishing. This is a great spot to come if you want to camp, but are limited on time.
