Great little hike and nice spots for picnics on the pond. Only heard the call of the loons. Meditative.

Loved this hike. Very remote. Off the beaten path. Hiked it just after it rained so some spots were slippery but overall really enjoyed. Not too difficult

I'm a fairly inexperienced hiker so if you don't have a lot of experience I would consider some parts of this trail moderate, trying g to navigate over rocks/streams but overall it's a nice hike with very little elevation gain. lots of tree roots and rocks on the trail so make sure you have a decent pair of hiking shoes or boots.

Nice trail with beautiful views. Overall level but rocky, not for the unsteady. Good place to camp by the water.

Hike on 9/4/17, day after a rainstorm. Trail was soggy, and with all the roots and rocks it made for some slippery hiking. Although the trail was flat as a pancake, the rocks made it difficult at times. My mother-in-law found it easier with trekking poles, though I'd take your less able-bodied friends when it is dry.

Nice place, saw no one! Hiked the day after rain so the rocky path was slippery, be sure to wear appropriate shoes.

The hike was a pleasant one. The track is level for all those who shy away from climbing. The path, as mentioned by others, is very rough. One must walk around and over many, many rocks and tree roots. The lake is beautiful. As this is early summer and we've had some rain, the mosquitoes were ferocious. I re-applied bug dope several time in the two hour walk.

I recommend this hike. It would likely be best in the fall and early winter.

Is the road open to the parking lot? Love this hike but last time we tried to go road was closed. Great family hike !!!

Hiked it on 10/20/2016 and enjoyed a beautiful day on the trail. The trail was very rocky and had many roots but was dry as we hadn't had much rain as of late. I noticed there is a privy not far from the hut for those who may be looking for facilities.

South branch is rocky and slippery when wet. Otherwise an enjoyable Fall hike. Stopped at lean-to on way back for lunch and nice lake view. We heard Loons but did not see them. Will bring binoculars not time.

Great loop trail for an easy hike or a hike with kids. Beautiful sights and a nice shelter. Was told the trail can get swampy when it has been raining.

I love this trail. Coming in from the logging road east of Intervale the trail with a loop around the lake is 3 miles. Last time I came up from the North Freyburg Maine side. This route is 6.5 miles with the lake loop. The southern shore of the lake gives beautiful views of Mount Baldy.
