Great little hike if you're in the Ely area. October colors were unbelievable and did not dissapoint. The best part was standing on the bridge and being eye level with the lake! Trippy!

Trail is quite overgrown, and the rocks and roots and a few rocky steep parts might make the difficulty level slightly more toward moderate than easy. Nevertheless, there are some lovely lake views and we saw lots of fungi which were interesting.

Easy to navigate but lots of bugs a few low-lying areas had water but not in passable. Picturesque views of the lakes.
