A little longer than the 8 miles according to the pedometer. we made it close to the lake but we figured we had missed it so after mile nine turn back, later to find out we were about a mile and a half away from making our goal. Either way one of the best hikes I've ever been on. we did 18 miles and had some of the best views you could get. We recommend soaking at Chico after this hike.
