This could be a good snowshoe trail, especially along the lake. It was ok.

Hiking

Parts of the trail (on the north side of the road) were good and well maintained, but about 60% of it (including all of the trail south of the road) was super overgrown, muddy, and buggy. The black flies were swarming and relentless on the south part of the loop, which can’t be helped, but it made that stretch of the hike fairly miserable.

I’d say if you REALLY had to do this trail, start with closest to the lake, go to the lake opening on the rocks, and turn around. Otherwise skip it and get better lake views at an overlook where you can go down to the lake. I read reviews it was overgrown but we were crunched on time and did this since it was shorter. Not worth it. ANY review talking about the river is not for this trail.

Relatively easy trail however... today, there were numerous patches of straight up water and mud which eventually became too challenging to avoid. HEAVILY recommend high hiking boots otherwise prepare for your feet to get soaked and your shoes to get muddy. Most of the trail is covered in knee high grass and brush, wear pants.

Lots of rushing river views. The ice formations were way cool.

Easy to moderate hike, unseasonably muddy for this time of year. We recommend starting clockwise to the last leg of your hike is along the lake. Bring a spare pair of socks and shoes to change into as your feet will get wet!
