If you are looking for a trail that has steep switchbacks through the woods, with no noteworthy views for most of the hike, and little more than a dirt road at the end, then this is the hike for you! With the exception of a nice view of the lake at the beginning of the hike, this was a pretty disappointing hike.

If this is "moderate," I'll be staying away from "hard" ratings.

Great trail for the casual hiker! Some decent views of Flathead Lake. Not many people on the trail. Only saw one other couple on the entire hike.
