3.5 Didn't see any moose or bears. Saw a cute chipmunk and beautiful birds. Im from the Midwest so no way is this trail "flat" as others said. There are elevation gains but just enough to get your heart pumping. I would NOT rate this easy. It's moderate. A few spots where you can see the water and on a clear day, the mountain range across the water.

I was sooo looking forward to doing the his trail but I didn't have cash on me and it's a $5 self park lot so... I'll have to go back, with cash in hand.

fun trail! shorter than anticipated if you do the first, small loop (1/2 mile total). clockwise, it's uphill then down. there's an opportunity to add another 2.9 miles (each way) to the loop.

Easy trail, $5 for parking, bathrooms on site. After the first 1/2 mile or so it levels off pretty nice. Nothing too steep or crazy. Several good areas offer great views of the water. A few people said they saw a few bears in the area however we didn't see them. So just be careful. Trail goes all the way to McHugh Creek so you'll have several miles of nice views and very wooded.

Nice trail with a few good look outs. Saw a moose and a black bear with a cub well off the trail. Muddy patches, but totally passable. Lots of people on this trail.

The section from McHugh Creek to Potter Marsh was closed today (5/31/16) due to a bear feeding on a moose kill.
