Great little backpacking trip. It did get very cold and give us some snow/rain mix overnight a little surprising for sep 15. So be prepared.

Nice easy hike. Trails were great, mostly shady, with beautiful views of the surrounding mountains. About halfway we up came upon a beautiful little waterfall. We were the only ones on the trail and and the lake at the top was crystal clear. We had the whole lake to ourselves. We enjoyed our lunch, and took some beautiful photos. The fall colors we're starting to show along the rocky hillside.

Easy hike in with a pack. Crossed a few streams and passed by a waterfall. Lake is gorgeous and the mountain has huckleberries if you're willing to adventure and hike on the game trails. The southern trail to the back campsite around the lake is accessible, but you will have to do quite a bit of tree hopping as there is a lot of deadfall. Lake is pretty cool in the end of August, but is still nice and refreshing to dive in for a bit. If you are going for seclusion, this is definitely NOT the lake for that as this is a very popular spot.

Great first hike for myself and three kids ages 9-13. Do NOT follow iOS maps' description to take NFD 7 and Revett Rd. Go around bend to large parking lot marked as Thompson Pass Trailheads on Maps just along curve on NF 9. Then can park down dirt road 1 mile if your car has good clearance.

The trail in was amazing and easy! The trail around the lake... needs a lot of maintenance! It was doable but I wouldn’t take my young children around the lake!

The trail into the lake is beautiful and well maintained. While it climbs nearly 1000 feet most of the climb is gentle. While there is a "trail" around the lake it clearly hasn't been maintained in some time. You'll have to break in places and climb over LOTS of deadfall. In some places it is very narrow with a sharp drop off to the lake. Kids would do great on the trail to the lake but you would need to carefully consider taking them all the way around

It is easily accessible which makes it somewhat crowded. At times in the middle of the day it was very noisy but quieted down when the NASCAR crowd headed back to their cars

Fishing was fun with a lot of small but hungry Brookies.

We would absolutely do this one again.

Very nice lake with a lot of people great scenery and pretty easy. If you do hike around the lake be prepared to do some bushwhacking. With all the blow downs and over growth the trail kind of goes away at the south end and the trail that is there is a bit rough going but fun.

Nice little hike. Lots of people. Lake has lots of hungry small brook trout. Small sparse huckleberries which was not the case the last time I was in.

This is an easy hike. We went on 6/24/17. It was a hot Saturday and very crowded. The trail has sweeping forest views on the way up, and the lake itself is gorgeous. We even swam in it for a second!
