A great deal of this trail is boring and cannot be described as difficult at all, unless the difficulty is in tolerating the jeep trail and the "nothing interesting to see." Only after about 3 miles have passed on the way out, the forest opens up with older growth, a comfortable spacious place. The last mile is rather rocky, technical hiking with steep ups and downs, which almost makes it worth walking those first 3 miles, almost. I would like to go to that area again but will not take this trail to get there. L

Great hike in the beautiful Sierras up to an absolute beautiful lake! The only complaint I had for this trail is that in several areas the trail was not well marked. Trail needs some maintenance work done to it. Many down trees, manzanita over growing trail, and easy to lose trail in many areas. But if you are good with maps, GPS, or even using your smart phone to navigate, you can definitely find the trail again in areas where it is well marked. And reaching beautiful Beyers Lake is a great reward!

Been doing this great hike out of Eagle Lakes since 1999. I would bring football coaches and teammates each summer to help us grow closer as a team. Each and every guy has since then been going to this beautiful lake with more and more people every year. Best place to get away from the world for a few days if your from the Grass Valley/ Nevada City area.

Fun hike! It was worth the drive up and the hike wasn't too difficult. Good hike for children and beginners!
