Nice hike to Big Lake Lookout. Only hiked about a mile past the lookout on the trail -- lots of deadfall and snags. I remember this being a beautiful, lushly forested trail about 10 years ago. Encouraging to see all the new growth Aspen and sad to see the devastation from the Wallow Fire.

Hiked the loop in about 3 hours, 30 minutes. For half the trail, you are walking through fire damaged land - lots of baby aspen trees about head height now. Good to see the land recovering but it will be years before it is what it used to be.
