Man made lake, stocked with grayling and trout. walk across the earth dam and there is a trail the leads up the inlet water "creek" fun spot to hike with small kids. Very easy walking. Raspberries to be picked, frogs to be caught. This a entry level family lake. paved campgrounds and public outhouse. Rvs with generators. nuff said. Great spot to spend a day.

Went in the end of May. Was still a little cold but not too bad . Trail was a little muddy but regular hiking boots were sufficient. The trail getting to the lake isn’t anything to write home about, but along the lake there’s lots of beautiful camping sites and places to enjoy the view that make it worth it

It was a beauty! Only did about 4 miles in and turned around, due to snow pack. A lot of blow downs and some snow/mud but nothing too bad. Did it on a sunny 65 degree day and would love to do the entire thing later in the season

2/3 of trail was clear. Lots of mud and some slushy knee deep snow in shaded areas. Many downed trees. Made it past the 2nd bridge until the snow was too deep to continue without snowshoes (~4.5 mi. mark). Fresh signs of moose and elk but didn’t see any! (5/9/20)

Great hike for something short and pretty. I wouldn’t say it’s that easy mainly due to all the trees being down and having to maneuver under and over them. The small footbridge was pretty questionable as well. Definitely recommend!

Due to deep snow on the road, we had to hike into the trail, no big deal. Lots of downed trees all the way down the mountain to the campsite. Bridge is out and with the spring runoff, we couldn’t walk across. Found a downed tree upstream and made it across. Walked up the road and explored. Decided to take alternate path back, which showed on the all trails map....that path is not actually there. Had to scavenge our way back. What should’ve been an easy 1.7 mile hike turned into over 5 miles. Beautiful country and an exciting adventure, just not what we expected at all. Lots of evidence of elk in the area.

I only did a small portion, as the snow/slush got too deep and I only had micro spikes on. Did this on the odd 60 degree day the first of February. It was so beautiful with a nice breeze and blue sky.

Absolutely fantastic. There are some steep climbs at the start, but after that its a moderate and incredibly beautiful hike. We did it as a 3 day, 2 night, backpacking trip with a swing up to the top of Mount Edith, which gave us ample time to enjoy the lakes and the views. Cannot recommend this enough.

trail is hardpacked and well maintained. moderate climb with a few steep spots. lake is full of good sized westslope cutthroat

A bit overgrown about a mile into the hike

Great trail! There are some steep and rocky areas, but if you have a good confident horse you should have no issues. Everything was well marked, lots of water and beautiful views.

this track file will take you to heart lake which is where I went to. nothing really spectacular, most of the hike is through a regenerating Forest that was burned. the lake is nice.

A lot of fun! Beautiful wide loamy Trail that took some time getting used to but within no time I could handle well on the bike. Didn’t make it all the way to the meadows ...so a must do return trip!

Very Beautiful and Easy walk great for everyone

Great trail that has recently been maintained. Two thirds is forested with short sections exposed. We camped at the meadow. There are spots all the way around. Bugs were out ... meadow, stream, wetlands so it was no surprise. On the way out saw several groups of mountain bikes coming up the trail (it would be a fun mountain biking trail). I would give it 5 stars but there was a fair amount of horse droppings so at times it was smelly and extra buggy.

June 20 2019 and was cold, rainy and windy. Had a great time though. Hike was short walk around day use area and lake. Camping areas were nice and everything well maintained. Will definitely go again. Overnight temps in 30s. Hike was very short, more of a walk around day use area but nice fishing along the way. Expect a 40 minute drive from clancy.

Not much of a hike as much as a walk around the lake. Very pretty lake, good camps spots, areas to catch frogs. Good place to take kayaks or canoes.

Great views, solitude, fishing !
