A great place to picnic, enjoy scenery, fish and spend a nice family day away from it all.

More like a path going around the lake halfway than a "hike".

Areas to set up camp for the night or so.

I drove a big Jeep-like truck up to this trail, if you have a little car you might have trouble. Other than that, this is a very easy trail once you get there. My 4 month old puppy and I hiked this and it’s pretty - aspen trees, alpine flowers, boulders and of course the lake. He had a blast splashing around and I laid a blanket out and laid on the shore. I’d go back anytime!

We decided to come here for a relaxing picnic by the lake. The hike itself was very short, but the view at the lake definitely made up for it.
On a side note, going back up the dirt path was very difficult and I do not recommend it if you don’t have a 4Wd. We drove there in our front wheel drive Ford Fiesta and we ended up stuck and unable to get up the incline. My boyfriend had to literally push the car up over the mud and ice.
Otherwise, I enjoyed the lake and the scenery :)

Late September, pretty walk down to lake. We took it farther and found a creek and pretty valley with Aspen groves. Spotted a moose.

Beautiful lake and very remote. Glad we had a truck with 4wd for the drive in and to the parking lot/trail head.

(3.18.17) Hiked down the access road (currently closed) to the first lake. Quick and easy hike down. Would be a nice place to camp/back pack.

Good place to set up a tent for the night. The road to the lake is pretty rough and you need high-clearance 4WD. Very peaceful and quiet, some easy walking trails between the lakes as well.

Very easy, and great for families. Not super great fishing or scenery. If that's what you're looking for, I recommend going off trail and exploring some of the rock formations nearby. That's where you can really find some beautiful views. I've posted a couple pictures of the third lake from one of those formations.

Awesome spot, kind of out in the middle of no where, pretty rocky but lots of open space with prime campsites. lots of already made fire pits which made building the fire much easier. the dogs really enjoyed the lake which is very well stocked with fish, definitely ganna bring some fishing gear next time. The road out to the trail head gets pretty steep and rocky, esp on the last 50 yards, I wouldn't recommend going down unless you've got 4wd and decent clearance. I drive a 2013 Dodge Journey AWD and it made the trip down no problem suprisingly enough. Didn't really see any wildlife which was okay because we had 3 large dogs with us but Def a spot worth checking out and spending a day or two

This was a last minute overnight camping trip for us. Our car couldn't make it to the parking lot, but it was a super short walk to the trailhead. We found a camping spot right on the water even though we arrived late Saturday afternoon on a holiday weekend.

All camping spots were full, but it was still really relaxing. We hung our hammock next to the second lake and just hung out. I would definitely recommend you check it out. Beautiful views and enjoyable drive.

Side note, the hike to the first lake is pretty short so you could get away with car camping gear if you're good with making a second trip.

Great scenic area, lots of moose!! Very secluded. Easy hike.

Nice little lake with some decent camping areas, clear water, and a nice beach. We arrived on Sunday and were pretty regularly sharing the lakes with weekend fishers or hikers. On Monday we didn't see anyone all day. Carrying everything in and out wasn't much fun, as we only have "car camping" gear right now, but it's at least not too far of a hike. The wind really sweeps through the lake area and there's a fair amount of litter (broken glass, etc) for an area that you can't drive to. As for fishing: we didn't catch anything and didn't see many caught. Still, this is a nice quiet place to do some camping, fishing, and hiking.
