Great trail! Almost completely free of snow as of mid-May. Loved the shade and the fact that there were hardly any people on this trail. This trail is great for families with young kids as the incline is very gradual.

Luther Pass to Scott’s Lake. Some beautiful views, no people, shaded areas, gradual up & down.

Nice easy hike with good views of Hope Valley. The trail is muddy in places near the beginning but clear the rest of the way. The lake is very full right now--no stumps visible and very little "beach," and some of the campsites are flooded. Only saw one group camping and a few hikers and bikers. It should be noted that a bunch of the photos that people have uploaded here are not of this trail! This trail is wooded the entire way with periodic views of the valley through the trees. No meadows, no ridges, no exposed sections. The singletrack ends near the lake and you take a jeep road the rest of the way.

Great hike with a scenic view of the valley. It should be noted that their is a dirt road also providing access to Scott’s lake and their may be one or two cars camping. Otherwise we enjoyed the hike with little interaction with others.
