Great hike for families, with stunning views of the lake and glaciers. We did a loop with the Jean Lunning trail, to circumnavigate the entire lake. Arrive early to get parking, otherwise you'll be starting at Brainard which adds another 1.5 miles to the hike.

Great trail for a family hike or out of town'ers who aren't used to altitude . Make it a loop with the Jean Lunning Trail from the Long Lake trail head to make it ~3 miles. Did it with a 3 year old in about 2 hours. Get there really early or you'll be forced to parked farther away. Lot was full by 6:45 am on a Sunday. $10 entry fee to use Brainard Lake Rec Area. This is now my go to trail for out of state house guests from lower elevations.
