Trail was snow covered most of the way, starting out at about 12 inches, but usually about 4 inches. Many downed trees covering trail. Lake view at the end was nice, but with snow cover there was no obvious route to get other vantage points. The road getting there is a bit rough (gullies, snow) for the last half mile or so. Small AWD SUV had no troubles, but would have parked a bit earlier in a lesser vehicle.

Beautiful lake! The trailheads were misleading though and there are a couple different ways to get there. We took a trail off Highway 4 and almost missed it, it was so hidden. Our trek was almost 4 miles round trip and had more of an incline, but definitely worth it. :)

It such a beautiful trial and it's not that difficult. I didn't get to the lake because about 1.4 mails into the hike we actually did came in counter with a bear. Luckily enough we were a group of 7 and spot the Bear far enough where it didn't felt threaten and able to get away safely. Just be super careful and alert of your surroundings, i wouldn't go alone.

Good hike, although heavy traffic with people allowing dogs off leash more than expected. Fishing slow with lures

This trail was easy for us to complete. The climb was doable even for us not being acclimated to altitude. The drive up was beautiful and we saw moose. Then when we got to the trail, we saw a bigger one grazing. The lake was worth the walk. The mosquitos were really bad walking around the lake. Bug spray was a must. Overall we would highly recommend this trail.

Short hike, with a pretty lake at the end. Lots of good spots for lunch or a snack near the lake. We went early in the day during the week in June and there was only one other couple there. We did also see moose in the vicinity.

Really great trail, only a few switch backs. The view of Lost Lake is great on your descent to the lake. Watch out for grumpy fly fisherman. Bring bug repellant.
