I have something to say about this trail this is on private land and people have generously let people hike to this area because it is such a geological wonder however lately all these a holes have been going out there and vandalizing this place therefore it has been shut down this was a place that I grew up around and has been maintained a peaceful hidden gem forever and now you are plastering this all over the US and the stupid Internet and all these unwelcome visitors should just stay away you have ruined some thing that can never ever be changed- Thanks a lot are you tourist a holes- Why don’t you just stay where you came from if you can’t respect the places you visit

Hiking

We hike pretty fast but it was a perfect half day hike - we were up and down in under 3 hrs. Strava/Suunto had our distance at 10.5miles. Beautiful fall foliage - one of the best trails in the area and wasn’t busy today. We maybe saw 3 other groups. It’s a gentle and manageable grade up to the lake with tons of spots to take picture by the creek. Not super technical - absolutely perfect for a group of mixed levels. Would be perfect Trail for a Trail runner - highly recommend to anyone in the area.

It is a little longer than 9.8 miles! Worth it though!

A great hike. It is a well maintained trail, with plenty of traffic. We were on the trail 9/26/20, there's a lot of water puddles in the walking path, so I would recommend waterproof hiking boots or hiking shoes.

Wonderful hike, enjoyed the trip. Took kids and inflatables up to the lake, which is gorgeous. It's a pretty easy hike, not a lot of very steep places. Highly recommend!

The sign at the beginning of the trail said bring bear spray. We saw several people with it and wish we would have remembered it. We turned back after a couple miles because we didn’t feel comfortable without it. It is grizzly country. Nice shaded easy trail beside a stream.

On the easy side of moderate, trail is long but really gradual. The lake has plenty of places to sit and relax. Very pretty.

Lots of water features along the way and ample shade. The lake is beautiful and well worth the hike. It is rocky so wear boots.

HikingGreat!

Easier hike than the East Rosebud Lake to Elk Lake hike. Not too rocky. Gradual incline. Enjoyed hiking right next to the creek. Really enjoyed the Broad Lake 3/4 mile before Lost Lake.
