I’d say this was a good trail but not great. The first 0.9 miles or so are very scenic with beautiful views of the lake, but you have to share the road with 4wheelers. You can walk on the beach instead but this was not an option for us as my husband uses a cane right now. Once you cut up into the trail it was nice and quiet however there several trees across the other that we had to step over. Also you are walked in by all the trees and views of the lake are no longer possible. Not a big deal usually. But after the fourth downed tree it was feeling secluded which was nice but eerie as we walked by a couple of piles of bear poop. At the end right before the trail exits there was a black Bear we made noise and it walked away. It’s a nice little loop but wouldn’t go alone without at least bear spray. Go early because the parking lots fill up quick

Dry trail, great hike for people with kids! We had our 5 and 7 year old with us.

Good incline tough with dogs that pull. Slightly muddy in two spots.

ok to walk your dog, or to cool down with after doing the Twin Peak trail...it's not scenic though until you're on the road in front of the lake.

Nice short easy loop hike. Pretty views late in the day (Fall) with the sun setting.

Didn't really enjoy the upper section of the trail because it was like walking in a tunnel. The Lakes side portion of the trail was on a dirt road shared with ATV's and mountain bikes

We took the fat tire bikes out for a short spin on the trail today, we are kicking ourselves for waiting so long to come out here! What a beautiful place! Different hues of blue in the snow and ice, mountains all around, and the length of Eklutna lake the entire way. Truly amazing.
