We weren’t the first ones in this year but probably a close second! Lots of snow and not much open water. One month later and it will be great!

Nice wooded trail up to the lake which makes it a good hike on a cool day. There are several nice camp spots near the water.

Great hike up to the lake, lots of rocks to navigate. There is an unmarked trail around the lake. Forgot to record going back down.

This was a nice, quick hike. The lake was amazingly clear.

Quick hike through the trees to a beautiful lake full of grayling. Makes for a great afternoon but it is about an hour drive from Hamilton.

A great overnight trip with our kids. A few down trees over the trail, but nothing too serious. Snow was gone with the exception of a few shady spots. Packed out some trash and was saddened by the abuse of live trees.

Snow in some areas. A beautiful hike to a beautiful lake. The grayling were biting. We were there Friday June 14 and 15. To the group of the a$$holes were left all of their trash in the fire pit. Me and my boys packed it out for you.

It's a fairly dense walk in on a rocky trail. but once you get to the top it opens up to a beautiful lake! Easy hike in and out, even my 9 yo had no problems. Tons of fish up there too!
