Decent length trail. Steep incline a lot of the way, especially at the end. Plenty of grouse. Heard an elk while out there near the lake. Warning for "aggressive bull moose" on trail but I did not get to see him :(

Very well marked trail that is also easy to drive to. The trail doesn’t afford many views but the forest itself is beautiful. Effectively no major elevation changes so you can move with a quickness. Very few boats on the water which added to a remoteness feeling.

Spectacular fall colors framed by granite domes, peaks, and cliffs. Sole representative of the insect kingdom was a lone dragonfly. I cannot recommend this more as a fall hike!

Went backpacking as a group of 4 on September 28-30th. We didn't start until about 1pm the first day, and got to the second lake by 5 or 6. Follow the coordinates provided on all trails through google maps and it will bring you to a loggers road. The road is wide enough here to park on the side and then walk down the loggers road, which goes for I think a bit over 2.5 miles before you enter the forest properly. The trail clearly starts on your left, but the loggers road almost looks like it keeps going on your right. It does not. Follow the trail into the forest. When we went, the wind was blowing what looked like bits of cotton all along the loggers road, making a fey magical sort of feeling. It was so pretty. TEMPS were in the 50's and a bit in the 60's during the day, at night supposedly it got down to 25 at the worst. Maybe it was because we came prepared for cold nights, but it didn't feel that cold. We also had 4 people sleeping shoulder to shoulder in a tent, so that helped. WATER. We used a gravity filter system which filters 4 liters of water in like 10 minutes. On the way to the lakes, you pass probably 3 small streams that you can collect water from (two of them are pretty slight though). On our way up we had brought enough that we didn't need to until we got to the lakes. On our way down we brought a little less water for weight purposes and stopped at one of the streams. Couldn't actually find the trail that goes to the first smaller lake. The trail splits, one going down towards the first smaller lake, but it seemed to peter off and we lost it (though it doesn't seem like other people had problems judging by the reviews). So we followed the other path which brought us to the larger lake. Two from my group followed the stream on our second day from the large lake to the smaller one, and were able to find a trail on the way back that they said was faster than taking the trail that only goes to the larger lake (unfortunately they forgot to mark where it was when they came back to our camp at the larger lake and were not able to find it again). My girlfriend and I, meanwhile, were out trying to forge a path to Harrison peak. I had heard you can make your way there from the two mouth lakes, though there seemed to be no trails. It ended up being farther than it seemed, and we climbed a closer one which we at first thought was Harrison peak. a warning if you attempt this, the brush is tall, ranging from knee to chest height. Coming up the side of the peak, we got to a small unnamed lake (which you can see on google maps) that has another granite peak directly behind it. Beautiful. Ate lunch there and climbed our original goal, the slightly smaller peak to the right, yielding an excellent view of the two mouth lakes and the stream that connects them. I will say it definitely felt more wild somehow, than down by the two mouth lakes. I thought I glimpsed and heard an animal when we first approached the unnamed lake, and when we went out of sight ascending the peak, we both clearly heard something large and probably hooved stomping about in the lake. This is the last forest in the continental US with caribou, I wonder if it was one of those On the third day we climbed back down from the larger of the two mouth lakes and made it down in about 3.5-4 hours.

Now the smoke has cleared and the air is crisp. There was about 1" of snow on the trail but worth the hike. Hiked to all 3 lakes. Love this place!

09/09/20 My hiking buddy and I traveled from Coeur D'Alene and arrived at the trailhead at 9: am. The trail was among the best maintained I have hiked. The views were amazing, almost breathtaking at every turn! There was a clean restroom at the trailhead. We hit all 3 lakes taking our time in around 5 hours. I drove the 23 mile "log road" in my Ford Escape from Burns took about 90 minutes. The road was better then I expected but was deeply rutted in a few short areas as well as washboard. I drove about 20mph max. No bear signs but carried bear spray. Highly recommend this hike. Moderate+

HikingGreat!Rocky

Beautiful hike. The trailhead is accessible without 4WD and well-marked. There is an outhouse to use before/after the hike. The trail is mostly shaded and ascent is gentle with plenty of flat stretches to catch your breath. The views of the forest and mountains from the trail are spectacular. The last 1/2 mile is a killer, with a lot of vertical and rocks to navigate. Take your time and it will be worth it. The lake and surrounding mountains are stunning, with plenty of places to swim and fish. Trout were jumping! Since summer is over and school in session, we had the entire trail and lake to ourselves. Heaven! We encountered a sweet family of grouse on the descent. Hike duration: 1 hour, 15 minutes up, 48 minutes down.

HikingGreat!

Incredible experience. About 30min of dirt road driving in, but a sedan could manage it. Much of the trail was rocky with breaks of soft pine to catch your breath. As you get closer to the top there are flat rocks and an opened up view of the treetops that is stunning. About another five minutes and you reach the lake. It’s sparkling and quiet and so serene. It took my wife, my dog and me 1.5 hours to climb and about the same time going back down as we were careful to not slip on the rocks. Truly gorgeous and worth the hard work! The huckleberries were tasty too!

Great hike, beautiful views and a September snow storm in the morning. We weren’t alone at the lake but had plenty of spots to spread out. Wind ripped through all night and into the next day. 10/10 would go back

CampingBlowdownGreat!

Lovely, mostly flat trail - gets steeper after Plowboy campground as others have noted. A few blowdowns across the trail. Great experience camping at Navigation - only one other site occupied, and I found the best little tucked-away pebble beach for my spot. Lots of boats on the lake so doesn’t feel like “the wilderness, but a fun spot for a weekend outing.

Great hike! Steady incline with some flatter spots throughout. Very enjoyable while feeling like you’re getting a nice workout! We backpacked up and stayed the night. Campsites were nice and clean for the most part. We ended up taking the campsite across the lake, over the boulder field, on the beach. And while it was beautiful, it is certainly full of wildlife. The “aggressive moose” stayed directly outside our tent the entire night and made it a little terrifying to sleep. He didn’t bother us much, but also didn’t love that we were in his territory. Understandable, it is his home! He played in the water directly in front of us all night. Saw some other wildlife as well. Overall, would absolutely do this again! The views at the top are stunning and it was a relaxing hike, still full of huckleberries! Made a nice treat in our breakfast. It took us an hour up with packs, and an hour down. Would highly recommend! There is also a restroom at the trailhead by the parking lot! Oh! And LOTS of fish in the lake. Happy hiking!
