Nice loop past a fishing hole in Golden Gate Canyon State Park. There's no cell phone service. Trail starts at the Aspen Meadow campground and takes you past Dudes Fishing Hole - a great place to sink a line and relax . You can extend your hike or ride by following the Mule Deer trail to Panorama Point- follow the spur trail near the end of the loop.

I would recommend this to campers or day-hikers as a exercise trail. You hike in the forest with little to no views. Still a great area though!

the lake was much smaller then it appears but still a great hike. Also not sure why it's rated as hard. Was pretty easy most of the way.

It wasn't what we thought it was to be. There looked like a fire was there recently. The hike was not full of scenery but it was good for cardio.

It was fine. Would be a nice walk if you were camping in the area. As a drive-to hiking destination, it was pretty underwhelming.
