So this was a good hike if you want a good workout and sore legs but not one for the sights.. the lake is actually a swamp with downed trees in it that you can't even get to.. mostly it's a mosquito breeding ground. There was a falls we could hear but not see unless we got super scary close to an unsafe edge. We took kids on it and they didn't have fun with all the uphill, would have been fine but there was nothing rewarding for them at the end. Pretty disappointed but luckily went with a great crew so the company made it fun!

left trail is rough, not maintained. right side has better view of the lake

Really trashed out with fallen debri now. Took a bating this Winter and there is now a full washout too.

It's more like a short "WALK". With dissapointing views

really enjoyed this hike with the family. very easy! maybe too easy for us! but it was still absolutely beautiful! anybody can hike this that is in any kind of shape. the 1st stretch is all uphill but not bad at all. once you make the right turn at the arrow...that's where the hike becomes the best....favorite kind of trail....beautiful trees...scenery...
we will take a pole next time because there are fish in this lake!

Not too hard for my poor knees. The Labrador loved it!

We have lived in Seaside for over 30 years and just discovered Bloom Lake today on May 10th. We would do it again with friends and family. Mikette

A lovely hike on a hot day. Trilliums were out. Dog-friendly. The return loop was washed out, so stay on the main trail.

This trail is wonderfully shaded and cool on a summer morning and easy while not being boring. We had a toddler in the backpack and it was just manageable (a little slippery coming back down, but not bad). It's definitely a short and sweet hike but our small child wouldn't have been able to do it on foot.
Park at the trail head on 26/Sunset Hwy- there is a very obvious sign for the trail and space to park.

Good hike. If you try to go all the way around the lake there are several false trails on the back side so be careful. First mile is all up hill.
