Camped overnight here...awesome place & hike... as we were rounding the lake near the second bridge where the trail starts to get overgrown we came upon 2 black bear cubs..one was swimming in the lake ... they both ran off but be aware of bears!..

Nice trail- a little more than 4.7 miles. Beautiful views when skies are clear. Nice camping spots for those that want to camp. Kayak rental spot in summer. Would be great for families.

love this very easy lake hike. On a clear day Denali is easily seen on the south face of the lake.

Beautiful Lake! The trail goes all the way around this lake, which is in an Alaska Stae Park. It is really pretty, and we saw lots of signs of wildlife, although we only saw a red squirrel and lots of small fish jumping out of the water on the bridge. We only went half way around then back the way we came because the trail lloked unused and we wanted to stay on the more traveled trails. We were the only people we saw on the trail that day.
