Easy trail. Great photo opportunities. Lots of shade, but there are some exposed parts. Walk clockwise.

The trail goes around the lake mostly under the cover of trees. There aren't many views to be seen, although there is an observation point where you can see both Blue Lake and Green Lake at the same time. About a third of the track is on the gravel shoulder beside the highway.

Beau panorama et surtout un très beaus début de randonnée en forêt. Le paradis des coureurs pour les plus sportifs.

Beautiful walk around the gorgeous Blue Lake. A little “damp” as the area had some rain the day before...but I wouldn’t call it “muddy.” Amazing views once the trees open up!

Ma première moitié est plutôt en forêt et empêche de voir le lac. La deuxième moitié offre une magnifique vue sur le lac. Au milieu du chemin, on a la possibilité d'aller au Green lake sir une air de picnic. L'aller retour prend 1h30 et est très agréable puis on peut finir la boucle du Blue Lake.

Nice for an afternoon walk. Peaceful and close to nature. Took around an hour and a half to complete loop.
