Lovely little trail , very easy and flat . Too quick , it's one that you would like to walk for miles on . Through the forest and then unfortunately on the road for the last bit but again , it's quiet and the mountains in front of you the whole way down to the car park are awesome . Worth it even for the drive up there . Great trail for a quick dog walk .

This is a great trail however very easy. Views are beautiful and if you hope to take some good pictures of the lake, you have to be there in the morning. Place is pretty busy during the weekend. I can't say I really hiked because the trail is pretty flat - almost wooded city park feel

Loved it! A little scary at times but great! Pretty! And not crowded once you get on the right trail

I took my family on this. 4 little kids (age range 2-6) and a husband. We really had the best time just poking around and meandering through the trees. It was a simple, easy walk. We didn't do the whole thing because it got chilly and we were underdressed.

We enjoyed it a lot, some parts where tricky with the wheelchair. but we enjoyed the drive up and the walk around the lake.

Busy, paved hike around a beautiful mountain like - just too many people. Starting point for the Chicago Lakes trail, which looks awesome!
