Wonderful hike! The lake is beautiful. This trail is actually 12 miles round trip and goes to Cherry Lk, not Peanut Lk.

Wonderful hike. The dogs seemed to enjoy it. Beautiful lake. Wish I brought the fishing gear.

Awesome hike! There's a few downed trees on the path, but I'd like to think that adds a little spice to the trail.

I can't really rate this trail since we couldn't make it all the way, it's our fault for renting a Toyota Camry to drive out into the mountains with haha
Definitely will need a truck or something higher up from the ground. There were a lot of rocks in the road closer to the mountain

Amazing scenery, beautiful and fast stream beside the trail in several areas, some what tougher trek at the higher altitudes....but well worth it!
