Extremely easy loop, not much to it. The lake is gorgeous and the occasional beaver may peek it's way out from its dam.

I recommend combining this hike with a few of the others in the area; like the roadside or maybe even MT Healy.

Saw one mama moose and her two twin babies. Very easy and I took my time overall an hour long. The shuttle buses are on time :)

Great little trail if you are short on time like us. Saw 5 beavers and heard a bull moose call.

A moderate trail. Some good sized up hills on the way back. Pretty view of some lakes. Pretty crowded place.
