This isn’t a trail. It involves driving to the saddle between Aspen Butte and Little Aspen Butte. Then it’s a matter of bushwhacking up the side of Aspen Butte. Last time I took this hike the woods were full of down trees, so there was a lot of zig-zagging on the way. There are also boulder fields to consider. The view from the top is spectacular.

This was a beautiful walk and the lake was well worth it. There are some small ponds on the way which are beautiful in their own way as well.

Couldn't find the trail. Went via Clover Creek TH as summit post.org suggested. The trail was snowy and muddy so lost it before reaching Aspen Butte trail I guess. Not well marked at all. Clover Creek itself was pretty. Not much for views, not sure I'd do it again.

Very pleasant hike through a pine forest. Very clean, easy-to-follow trail, even after an inch or two of fresh snow. Flat from trailhead to Varney creek crossing (~1.2 m), then a very gradual, evenly-graded incline towards the loop - never steep. Walked to the loop and back in 3.5 h, including breaks. Our GPS agreed with the posted mileage of 4.5 m to the loop (not 4.26). Past outdated reviews note trees on trail; the trail is now completely clean.

Such a fun, rewarding hike. I was worried about finding the trail, but the white dots made it suele easy to follow. It was super windy at the top and I'm glad I brought my wind breaker!

Had the trail to myself hiking to Lake Harriette yesterday. Beautiful scenery, and I’d call it a mildly moderate trail. I was able to hike the 5.8 miles to the lake in just over an hour and a half. Such a peaceful place, and I got to have a one and one with a bald eagle! I’ll definitely be returning.

i like this hike and have done it a handful of times. cold weather came early this year. we camped at Como but woke up to spitting snow and fog. pretty fall foilage, quiet, clean trail.

Beautiful. Very difficult to get to the top. Worth it.
