Getting snowy up there. good hike even in the snow.

This trail isn't very clearly marked. It definitely isn't for small children or anyone with knee problems. The brush grows right over the trail so a good portion of it is very overgrown. Would be a very wet hike in the rain. Lake is pretty, camp site leaves a lot to be desired. No real level spots to put a tent. Would be perfect for hammock tenting. We did this hike in July, it was nice and warm, water was perfect for swimming. Lots of gnats and mosquitoes. Save yourself 3/4 of a mile and drive up the gravel road just past the Stevens lake Trail head. You can drive right up to the trail. There's room for a few cars to park and still turn around.

We did this hike 10/8/17. We arrived early and were surprised to find about an inch of snow. We couldn't take the road past the blossoms lakes trailhead because the snow was weighing down bushes enough that we could hardly walk the road. Luckily it's an easy enough hike that the extra mile or so each was no big deal. It was a beautiful hike and the lake was amazing. We stayed and fished for a bit and eventually the sun came out and melted the snow mostly. We will be back again. I was hoping to get more fall colors, but it was more like winter was just arriving. The drive up was full of brilliant fall colors though.

Great way to get the heart rate up! Scarcely see more than a handful of folks.

Perfect for me and my active 9 yr old kiddo! Take the smaller trail along the south edge of the lake.

Easy hike, no views at the end (it just ends out of nowhere) but beautiful creek and lots of green. Hiked up and ran down. Will definitley go back for trail running.

Completed this trail yesterday. Started out morning at 32 degrees. Definitely about 9 miles total. There were a few switch backs, but for the most part steady incline. About 3 miles in the trail tees into a service road. You need to take a hard right before road to a trail marked “D”. You will then have another mile to top. You then need to continue on a short piece to the communication tower. This is where the best views are.Definitely worth the trip.
