Beautiful trail. Mostly shaded and offers beautiful views of the lake. There are a few trailheads that start from the loop trail that provide views of different waterfalls, overlooks, etc. I enjoyed the Astro falls, but wasn't too impressed by twin falls. If you wish, you can walk half the hike and take the lake shuttle back to the general store. It costs $6.50 ONE WAY or $13 for both ways (if you just want to walk around a little and come back without doing the full thing). We saw a variety of wildlife and the views of the mountains are fantastic. The lake glistens in the sun and there's the ability to rent kayaks/canoe as well!! Beautiful

This is about a 7-8 mile loop if you take some of the small side trails which we did, not 16.7.
Pretty easy and a good starter hike to this beautiful park!

Nice trail with great views of the mountains and Two Med Lake. Great day hike if you are staying at the camp grounds.

Note that the red loop shown on the map is not 16.7 miles but rather about 7. It is about 7 miles to walk around the lake and is easy terrain but took us about 4 hours with side visits to twin falls and Aster falls. Saw a large grizzly about 300 yards up on the screen and also saw where he had been grazing and over turning rocks on the trail. Also left a large pile of grizzly scat. Definitely wakes you up to have a 400+ bear in the vicinity. Amazing views and impossible to get lost. Lovely stroll.
