The lake was beautiful but a little crowded. The trail was well groomed and easy. There is a little rock area with a cute creek near the far end of trail where we are a little lunch. Fun for the family.

Great easy lake hike / hike in the woods with amazing sunset over lake. Conditions were a little muddy but overall good. Saw herd of 40-50 elk on hillside on creek part of hike about 200 feet from trail.

Loved this trail! The view of the lake and mountains in the distance is breathtaking! We went during February so one side of the trail was covered in snow, but it was manageable. There were also wild horses at the entrance. There’s creeks, water falls, and rocks to climb.

I use this trail a lot in the fall winter spring months since I can access it from my house making it about 4-1/2 miles total. It’s a nice little easy trail with beautiful views. During high season it gets pretty packed with hikers and fishermen and you can’t get anywhere close, especially if you’re driving.

Went on a Monday and only saw 2 or 3 other people. Lots of fall color. Easy hike for sure. It was our 2nd hike of the day, so we wanted something easy cause our dog is 11 years old. Lovely and quiet once you get away from the lake.

Great forest views but hundreds were in the trail and fishing. If you don’t like heavy traffic then you may want to find another trail.

Really nice trail - relatively easy, a few inclines but overall very good for families and just a quick basic walk.
