Nice walk to the lookout tower. No snow when I went, easy to follow and the views at the end are amazing. Check it out some time for sure!

This is a nice hike for beginners like myself. Easy to find and follow. There are a few spots that need some maintenance and one bridge is a little broken but it’s still very cool and beautiful. No openings for views but getting to Oval Lake is worth it. Just know that it starts steep, “flattens” out a little bit then ends with some more steep. Awesome hike, do it if you have the chance.

We arrived in the late afternoon (2pm) and had the trail to ourselves. Unfortunately we only did the first half, but enjoyed every minute of it. The trail is very open, allowing us to walk in the warm autumn sunshine. From the first saddle there is a beautiful view... you are pretty much walking the entire trail with a good view. Next time we hope to do the whole trail.

Beautiful. Links to badger creek trail for a longer loop.

About .8 miles in is the steepest jaunt, just above the oak grove, but completely worth pushing through to see the dramatic forest change as you round the side of the hill. The change is intense and immediately noticeable in the vegetation; totally needed out on this one

This was a nice easy hike up to Flag Point Lookout. At the top there is great views as there should be for a lookout tower.

This was a great little hike. It is a pretty quick incline in a short distance and still had some large melting snow patches to go through. There was also A LOT of blowdown to climb over or go around. Very nice hiking along the creek and then getting to the beautiful lake was great. There are a couple places to camp around the lake. I would recommend this as a start point and then when you hit Divide trail take a right and head towards Lookout Point.
