Great trail. Backpacked in with my 12 year old daughter and 4 year old golden retriever. We spent 2 nights at the lake. It is a beautiful spot.

Great hike on an awesome trail! Very easy to follow. Description is spot on. The lake is beautiful and views from the ridge were good! Definitely all of the 10+ miles!

Awesome trail, can't add anymore than the pictures and previous review already do. BUT, some helpful info for anyone looking into this. I spent some time trying to confirm the condition of the Forest Road 58 you take to get to the trailhead prior to our departure, and never could quite get an accurate picture. My wife and I were in a 2012 Accord. We were able to make it to the trailhead, but the road was about the max that the Accord could ever handle due to ground clearance. Just an FYI for anyone looking into this trail. Highly recommend a vehicle with decent clearance for this road. Enjoy!

This place is beautiful and you get lost in it immediately. Been here only once but it will always be a favorite. Water in the lake is fantastic for viewing, relaxing. Or fishing

I did this by myself and it was a nice hike near Red River. Less traffic than Middle Fork.

Great trail with Amazing views! If you want to make it to the lake though make sure you have Hiking boots and Trekking sticks. The last mile you encounter snow and you need to be properly prepared or its a bit dangerous! Overall great trail!

It was a nice trail. It is not one of the prettiest, unfortunately. Lake Katherine and Nambe Lake in Santa Fe are much prettier. The trail was not very challenging. Decent grade. I went up via Red River, on trail number 54 (?).
