Hiked three lakes trail 6/10/17. I have seen numerous accounts of actual mileage due to a detour that seems to add just a bit of length to the trail. Trail head shows 10.4 miles. Hiked trail in exactly three hours with no stops. Multiple creek bed crossings that were all dry when I went.

OK hike. Was nice because there was hardly anyone on at the trial at all (even though its memorial weekend and great weather). It's actually 10.4 miles as there's a mandatory detour that takes you up the road (by the entrance to the cemetery) for a short wile and you cross over to take the trail on the right (this is not very well marked). The lake you walk around is not that picturesque and the road nearby is a little noisy. Almost all streams are dried up so I think this takes away some of the natural beauty. It is though a great length, somewhat moderate hike to get your blood flowing. I preferred Low Gap but this was still worth it to try once.

This is really good trail if you like trails with rivers. You need go across the rivers 4 or 5 times if you complete the entire circular trail. We took 4 hours to finish including resting time.
Be careful, we did see a snake on the side of the road. We went around it. But still highly recommended!

Length requires some endurance. Avoid directly after wet weather, as there's a potentially boot-eating interval along rutted forest road. The trail markings were scarce sometimes and I had difficulty navigating that section. The other seventy percent is gorgeous though. Fun trail with circuitous ups and downs.

Rugged with many elevation changes. The trail is always changing. Some of the diversions are confusing around the logging, Follow the white diamond markings on trees.
