the trail is on the short side and it takes a minute to find it. i was disapointed with the lake its more of a large pond. still had a good time and the walk threw the trees was nice.

Didn't really do it as a hike. iIfished this whole end of the lake with my family. One year it had a really large population of nice big, Brook Trout that we enjoyed catching. Odd little lake with the reddish color instead of the crystal blue of all the surrounding lakes. There is also some space here for rough camping that is not in a campground.
