Great trail, moderately steep in a few parts but nothing too difficult. Good for new hikers and kids too!

Great Trail! Aspens are just starting to turn yellow. Only saw probably 10 people. Virtually zero mosquitoes for us. Gorgeous views. Trail head was easy to access. Took us about 1h45m with stopping and having a snack at Lost Lake. Highly recommend

This makes for a lovely walk on snowshoes. You can rent them from the lodge, if they are open. It's super quiet in the winter, for the most part.

My kids 7-16 and I hiked this trail about 3 weeks ago. The trail was great but the mosquitoes almost carried us away!

Loved this hike! We missed the turn off to go up to lost lake and ended up walking the perimeter of south Mesa lake before we realized. Also beautiful! We eventually walked back and found the correct trail to get up there. Was pretty easy. Has a few places to stop off to rest on the way up. We went last September and the trees were all yellow! Definitely recommend around that time.

Easy trail with more than a few mosquitoes but it got better as the trail went on. very nice views of the lake. there were some trees down on the trail .

Easy walking trail; but lots of mosquitoes this time of year. As long as we were in the sun they were tolerable. I suggest walking at a quick pace or light jog while in the shaded areas. They didn't seem to be impressed with bug spray. Other than that, it was a beautiful scenic walk! And skinny dipping in the Lost Lake was worth it!
