It's a flat trail around a small lake. Good for an easy outing but not spectacular. well maintained dirt trail.

Beautiful first hike, the water smelled sweet, the forest flow was warm and piney, and the birch trees sang their song...

Nice trail around a beautiful lake. Only drawback is highway noise.

I hiked this trail on 09/19/17 with my wife. The trail is a lovely 2.1 mile round trip "walk" around a beautiful partially man made alpine lake. Scenic beautiful views of both the lake and forest that includes many "weeping" aspen, from the beginning to the end of the hike. Unlike a hike in the deep woods where there is limited sunlight, this trail provides plenty of light as you never venture far from the lakeshore. We were there too early in the autumn season to see much color other than a peek of yellow here and there. Interesting it was snowing a few days later at Spooner Lake. The negatives of this hike is that beside being a short hike it also very level, thus not much of a workout. An earlier review suggested do immediately do the hike again. We did not but it is an excellent suggestion. Another negative is that at certain points on the trail you can hear traffic noise from the nearby highway. I would like to mention on the positive side that the state parks of Nevada (of course including this one) are extremely well maintained. This includes the roadways, parking lots, trails, informative signage, and restrooms. Thank-you Nevada!

Easy hike. Very pretty. Make sure to check out the grinding stones from the Washo Indians at the north end of the lake. Nice interpretive signs along the way.
