Nice little trail with amazing locations for some cliff jumping on a hot summer day. I would love to give that a try and may make a trip back to do that.

Fishing

Trail is washed out but hang a right into the trees and a new path has started. We took our shoes off and walked across the hip deep water to the big rock off the island. Beautiful and quite day fishing.

Not very nice.. the path is blocked by fallen trees and it actually smells like stagnant water - With all the other great options around I would avoid this one

Hiking

Sentier étroit non aménagé de terre, de roches, mais surtout de racines et de tronc. Une partie du sentier semble avoir été inondé, mais il y a un petit de chemin de terre pour se rendre de l'autre côté à côté. Le lac est beau, mais si vous voulez en skipper un, ça peut être lui ou vous pouvez faire juste une partie du sentier. Rien ne sert de faire la boucle au complet, car pas vraiment de point de vue différent.

The trail as marked by Alltrails was not accurate in some areas. Right at the start there is a marsh where there is supp to be a path and the mid-point of the trail has some part covered by the lake. All in all a short peaceful trail. Hardly anyone on it. Not very well maintained.

Adorable little lake. Gorgeous colours. Didn’t realize where the trail started and went off to the left (instead of right) and followed other people’s self made trails. Found a little spot to go for a chilly swim. Refreshing after a good day of hiking. Would probably go back and try find the real trail.

The trail is scattered and hard to follow. Pretty lake with lots of jumping off places and areas to swim. Wouldn’t call this a “hike” per se, but a pretty way to spend an afternoon. I was unfortunate in that there were two large family groups screaming and playing loud music as they swam which ruined the ambience a bit. Nice views though

Part of the trail is washed out but there is a new really easy trail to follow. Absolutely stunning.

HikingGreat!

Get ready to get wet! The trial entrance is about chest deep in glacial water. We carried our shirts and phones over our heads. Beautiful little hike.lots of climbing and a lot of places to sunbathe and cliff jump.

Amazing! Busy. The cliff jumping was surreal, many different levels for all sorts of comfort zones. 2 paths, the first is quick but you are walking through chest-deep water. We put on our bathing suits and carried out bags on our heads. I am about 5'7'' and the water was to my chest. There is a longer route, take a left. 10/10 going here again next summer.

The walk from the parking lot to the lake was nice, but once you reach the lake both sides of the trail are submerged in deep water.

It was very wet, I would recommend wearing some closed toed shoes with socks! Cliff jumping was amazing and there are multiple heights to chose from!

Cliff jumping was fun and worth making it through the washed out trail. Stick to the left and it is just over ankle deep in the washouts. Overcast today so wasn’t as busy...great day to go out.

Currently the trail is flooded, but that does not mean any lack of fun. I have a little dog that hates water so I had to pick him up when navigating the flooded parts, which usually he hates but it was so hot and his tail was dangling in the water he loved it. It was pretty busy but it didn’t take away from the awesomeness of this trail and swim area. You can cliff jump and still see the bottom all in the same area because the water is so clear. Definitely a great place to come and cool off after a sweaty hike

Jeudi 23 juillet 2020. Il faut trouver son chemin dans le bois qui longe le lac jusqu'à la paroi rocheuse, car le chemin est inondé. La vue est sublime!!!
