Nice and easy trail! The lake was really calm and there were some beautiful birds around. We saw moose tracks but no actual moose. Only took us about 40 minutes.

Nice little walk (in and out, no loop) with small lake at the end. We saw fresh moose tracks in several spots along the way, but the animals were being elusive for us today.

“Please! Does the cockroach really cause problems for the house? No, it’s just a nuisance.” I wish they wouldn’t hunt the moose in November so the probability of seeing some drinking water was higher. I also don’t want to hit one while I’m driving fast on the French Mountain at night. Home is where the gold is.

Great little hike, first half is along the old fire road (thankfully they changed the parking lot so idiots no longer drive up here), then it turns off into more natural type trail through a clearing before entering some woods before the lake. Great place in the spring and early summer to spot moose with calves, but you really have to look for them in the clearing, they can see or hear you before you can see them, so they tend to freeze to avoid being spotted.

Easy hike. Trail may be muddy. The lake is beautiful. Did this trail at sunrise. It was beautiful. Lots of signs of moose, but no moose.
