OMG the views were amazing. Such an easy trail to hike. Took forever to leave because of the views and millions of pictures I took :)

Great trail, was in good condition, some muddy spots but nothing you can’t navigate around if you don’t want to tromp through! Beautiful fall colors, so many great places to stop and rest if needed. Quiet trail and was very low key, not a lot of steep spots after the initial area when first getting into the trail.

A Beautiful less crowded trail that winds through the forest that leads to the lake with views of surrounding peaks as well as a fun Boulder field to explore if you choose to wander further around the lake. Muddy in sections and slightly snowy nearer the lake. yak trax sufficed.

The lake at the end of the hike is beautiful. The hike itself has some nice parts, but it can get long this time of the year (mid-October). Very muddy.

fun quick and easy hike!

This is a great walk for those with mobility challenges or small children. Also could make for nice running loop if you included it starting from Hyak or elsewhere. (The paved loop itself is relatively short.)Paved path around Lake with spectacular views at one end and plenty of picnic tables.

Nice trail with many offshoots. I might have gotten lost if I did not have this app. Beautiful views from all sides.

Easy and lovely hike that has a nice loop with a variety of views. We went counterclockwise, which provided extended lake views.

Very beautiful views!

Great little trail, very easy. Took a friend and his son to this trail, as well as our dogs and it was very easy on everyone. The water at this pond is beautifully clear, and the views at the picnic area are amazing. A great easy trail to do anytime.

Fantastic trail to be outdoors and experience incredible beauty without effort. The trail is paved, clean and flat. Many areas to sit and enjoy the Mountain View.

Nice little hike on a rainy Sunday afternoon! Quiet, peaceful, misty views of the pond and mountains. Clean facilities and wide open parking lot.

A lot of bang for your buck. An ADA Trail with such beautiful scenery? A winner for everyone.

Easiest if the three lakes to get to.

There is a self registration fee of $5. The parking lot is shared with another trail. This was my first time hiking this trail, came with my husband and we really enjoyed it. We came on Labor Day and there was very light foot traffic. The first mile or so with is slightly steep, but eased up thereafter. About 2.2 miles in, it got a little muddy, but wasn’t too bad. It was very easy to go off trail, I highly recommend using gps and/or recording/following trail map. There was some Beautiful scenery but not as much as I had anticipated. The first lake we came up to was very low, but there was a nice place to stop and sit for lunch or rest if needed there. The second lake was Beautiful. Went in the water, was the perfect temperature for the weather. The rocks in the water were pretty slick, I hiked in my Chaco sandals with ease. There was a few places where people had put up tents, I’m not sure that you can actually camp there overnight, but there were a few spots and open spots to rest and what looked like to camp. The total hike was 7.3miles long and took us roughly 4hrs to complete, that included our rest time and the time we sat played in the water and ate. We will definitely come back again and do the neighboring trail.

Really nice lake and a pretty easy hike to get to it. Would probably be a lot more popular if it didn't basically share the same parking lot as Colchuck Lake does. We did Eightmile on Saturday, and saw about 10 total people on the trail, did Colchuck on Sunday and is much more crowded, but also a lot more scenic. Definitely worth doing if you are around and have a little extra time to kill and want to do a pretty mellow hike.

Beautiful spot. Good for picnics and a walk. The workers said the bridge will be repaired by the second week of September. You can walk on either side, just not all the way around in a loop.

Lovely afternoon hike. No bugs ... yeah! A little dusty and hot, but the swim in the lake was all the reward we needed! Would highly recommend!

Moderate hike. Much if the trail is in full sun. Varied terrain from Meadows to boulder fields. Lake was beautiful and serene. Not many other hikers on trail.
