Spent 3 nights at Ropi, great camp sites and had the place to myself for two days - then the weekend crowds came !. Is easy to loose the trail hiking back out from Ropi so watch out the stone markings as the trail disappears at a few spots. Well worth the hike in but try to go mid week to avoid the crowds

We spent the night at Ropi and it was definitely worth the hike in. Beautiful lake with lots of trout. I recommend downloading a topo map before because we lost the trail a few times.

Wonderful weekend hiking from Echo Lake Chalet to Ropi Lake. This is a very rocky hike for the first few miles, be sure to have good boots on & make sure your pup is ready! Once you arrive at Lake of the Woods, continue past and wrap around Pyramid Peak to Ropi Lake. Here you will find some beautiful rapids and lots of granite with little shade cover. We found a great spot near the rapids and had a wonderful night of sleep. We made much better time on the hike back.
