Very nice hike. Reaching Boom Lake was worth it! However we were not prepared for so much snow. 90% of hike was snow covered. Melting snow and mud. We even fell through waist deep snow many times. Will definitely come back when it dries up but doesn't look like it will be for a while.

Been there in mid May, trail was covered with snow, so will have to do it again once it melts.

Beautiful Lake, day we went was raining which would have kept the crowds low. Did get to see Eagles as well. Definately recommend for a family hike, might even drag a tube up there next time

Great option for an easy day. Most of the hike occurs on the straightaway through the forest as the trail gently rolls up and occasionally down. The forest is thick and full of eye candy. Bring a good partner for great conversations cuz you should have your breath on this hike. You'll suddenly appear out of the forest and find yourself amongst a rock yard beside the lake. Relax, grab a bite, and take pics of the shear wall of rock brilliance on the other side of the lake.

Easy hike and worth the views at the end. The lake is a lovely spot to sit and take in the views. It wasn't overly busy either.

Very easy, quick trail that's accessible for people with a variety of fitness levels and ages. The lake at the end is very pretty and clear. Worth it if you're looking for some decent sights without a lot of effort. I hiked this early July 2016 and it was very muddy and wet at certain areas of the trail, so make sure you wear appropriate shoes/boots.
