Very nice hike; the trail is well maintained and mostly in the shade, which is very nice. All stream crossings have bridges. Quite a few others on the trail today, but it is a Friday.

This was a really fun hike and a beautiful trail. The trail goes along the creek the whole way up to the lake with several bridge crossings. We wanted to go fishing on the lake (lower palisades) but it is surrounded by brush and we didn't find any good fishing spots.

It was a good hike, 2.5 hours up with a 6 year old and a 1.5 year old. Stopped and had a picnic, and hiked down. The river was fast flowing and beautiful. It was a little tough for us, as it was our first hike. Make sure you bring enough water!

This is the Palisades Creek trail. Same at the Upper Palisades Lake trail, just stopping at the Lower Lake. One of my favorite hikes! Beautiful in November

Great day hike along beautiful Palisades creek! Saw several moose at the lower lake and if you look closely, cutthroat trout as well.
