The trail as marked seems to go through private property. One of the owners let us know that the access for the lake is actually 200 yards farther down the main hiway. Once you've exited the hiway, the paved road becomes gravel, and you park before it becomes a 2-wheel trail. There's a short walk to a little rocky beach, with a fire pit. My kids had fun exploring!

Great hike!!

Really liked this trail. It had a bit of everything. Rock cliffs, waterfalls, beaver dams...

Easy and relaxing 6.7 mile out and back for me and my 11 year old. Several side trails along the way to get on the creek. A downside was the numerous powder dirt sections due to dryness and horse traffic.

The views are unreal. If you go when there is a volunteer at the lookout you learn all sorts of good stuff!

Easy and flat. Great for getting in your first hike of the summer to test the old body out.

Gorgeous lake at the end of a short and sweet trail. The views of Trapper Peak beyond the lake are unreal. Steep in places and the drive up takes a bit but so worth it !

Awesome views from the top... highly recommend going through middle lake and Gem lake and up through the gully if you're up for the challenge. Super fun hike

Loved this trail!
Lots of ups and down with dramatic views of como lake. The sheer mountains on either side constantly change and add new picture oppourtunitys.
Landscape changes quickly from forest to alpine. We did loose the trail twice but found it quickly. The lake was low but clear and cold, could see fish swimming a bit. Would have loved to spend the night and done exploring around as there was so much to do in one day.
Very steep incline. Be prepared this one will take a lot of huffing and puffing!
