The Bowl Trail is an easy but amazing trail because it not only brought us to a gorgeous lake, but also gave us with a puppy a chance to climb to the top of The Beehive!

Did this trail along with the Beehive and it's a fairly easy walk and great view when you reach the water. Definitely on the easier side of "moderate".

Meh...not a fan. Super easy but the pond left me saying meh.

A lot of stairs. Nice if you're also going through the Beehive but not so great on its own.

I wouldn't suggest this hike just to see the lake, but it was nice to add into a larger loop with the Beehive, Gorham Mountain, and Otter Cliffs. The lake is beautifully clear and it was fun to see the fish swimming around, but there are so many other great hikes in the National Park that this was not the top of my list.
