I didn’t get to go all the way to the top because of how late I got to the trail. It was very challenging but very pretty! Would recommend to hike this in cooler months.

gradual uphill climb until the last push to the lake, that one is tough. well worth the trip. quick downhill hone.

Wonderful Hike! Start early if you're doing a day hike and give yourself plenty of time so you're not rushing to try to beat the darkness...Beautiful Scenery!

Hiked last Sunday. Beautiful wildflowers and trees! Some dead trees from a recent fire. The hike is steep in parts, narrow, too. The lake is gorgeous! We spent about an hour at the lake, taking photos, lunching, and enjoying this beautiful creation. There's some loose gravel in the last quarter mile or so, be careful heading up and down. Totally worth the 2 1/2 hour drive!

Great trail! It can only be accessed through a forest service road, but aside from some washboards it was well maintained and I didn’t need 4 wheel drive to get there. And we did have to back track to a different forest service road because the one on google maps was closed. Turn at Edna creek and take the 384 to 348. The trail is beautiful and the lake was a great place to spend the day.

My 1st real hike, never seen High mountain lake before. Trailhead is hard to reach via forrest service road. Trail itself was definitely steep but quite scenic. Last half mile its all deadwood from forest fire last year. Lake was perfect temp for swim and full of fish. Downhill hike was a breeze tho!

It was such a beautiful hike and the wildflowers are still in full bloom! The dip in Jennie Lake is the icing on the cake. We will definitely be back!

The first mile of this hike is a little tough but it is so well worth it, the fields of flowers and the Crystal Clear Lake are spectacular.

This was a good hike with the sound of the stream running adjacent to the trail much of the way and pretty wildflowers. It was very warm on our hike and it made the it that much more difficult. The way up is a constant uphill grade and gave me a good workout. There were fish jumping in the beautiful lake and I was able to catch one! Quite a drive to get there but worth it IMO.

fairly easy grade. lots of flowers. don't use Google maps to route you to the trail head or you end up at a closed road. lake area is burned out.

Hiked this trail on the fourth of July. Wildflowers were out in abundance.

Great trial, I would not call it moderate if you are carrying a pack and are over 40.The last bit before reaching the lake is strenuous. The fishing was fantastic, this isn't a moderately traveled trail. More like a very popular trail. All camping spots were filled Friday night. Saturday brought several groups of day hikers and Mountain bikers. Do not get the direction to the trail head from All Trails, leads to a closed road. Turn at Edna creek and follow the signs

I gave it 2 stars because we have went twice for the last two years and the road has been closed. on line it states open,but they are not.

Great day trip from Boise, and very quiet - I only saw a few people. The hike is pretty relentlessly uphill on the way up to the lake, which was a nice payoff. Super easy coming back down. The lake is small but lovely. Didn't see any bears but I've talked to people who did on this trail, so I'd recommend bear spray & bring an extra bottle of water.

Nice hike. Flowers were beautiful. Even though there was burned areas it was a great hike. Lots of fish jumping at the lake so bring your poles.
