Beautiful trail. We went clockwise and the first half is prettier. Stopped to check out the Bald Eagle observation monocular and spoke with the guy monitoring. Saw Mom feeding her eaglets. Awesome. Relaxing easy two hours ( would have been less but kept stopping). Lake was getting busier when we left yesterday at 9.30am.

Beautiful trail great hike for new hikers and hikes with children. I recommend going to the west after you park its the hardest part of the hike and the rest is smooth sailing. Went 5/5/17 and there was a patch of snow on the ground in one spot.

Great hike to get out of the summer heat of Phoenix. Easy drive as all the roads are paved. Come early though, because parking lot can get full. Great easy hike. Forest workers let me look through their scope and saw a Bald Eagle eating a fish it had just caught from the lake. Defiantly one of the best day hikes and the drive is amazing as well. You will not regret hiking this trail.

This was a nice hike around the lake. Not too difficult with hardly any elevation change, lots of trees, small animals. We didn't come across too many people but the lake is pretty busy. I'll do it again when we camp in the area.
