Lovely hike! Definitely agree that the lake is more of a pond. A little muddy in parts and might be difficult in the rain.

Beautiful scenery and the sounds of water, birds and breezes were lovely

We went in January and found newts. The forest of was super lush and gorgeous. Nice little climb to the lake. The lake was nothing to get excited about.

Basic hike easy enough for beginners, we took our almost 2 year old and he did pretty good. Mostly uphill on way too lake making for easier hike back. Lake is pretty, although not accessible really. Unless you wanna get kinda gross. Saw a few people in and out during our hike.

A solid 3 stars. A nice climb takes you to the lake. Although, it could be argued that the destination be named Bloom Pond.

Not enough blooms. Or too many. Not sure. Either way, not impressed.

Trail is in good shape and the road noises disappear pretty quickly. The lake is nice, not spectacular just nice. Definitely worth stopping by on the way to the coast.

really enjoyed this hike with the family. very easy! maybe too easy for us! but it was still absolutely beautiful! anybody can hike this that is in any kind of shape. the 1st stretch is all uphill but not bad at all. once you make the right turn at the arrow...that's where the hike becomes the best....favorite kind of trail....beautiful trees...scenery...
we will take a pole next time because there are fish in this lake!

Not too hard for my poor knees. The Labrador loved it!

We have lived in Seaside for over 30 years and just discovered Bloom Lake today on May 10th. We would do it again with friends and family. Mikette

A lovely hike on a hot day. Trilliums were out. Dog-friendly. The return loop was washed out, so stay on the main trail.

This trail is wonderfully shaded and cool on a summer morning and easy while not being boring. We had a toddler in the backpack and it was just manageable (a little slippery coming back down, but not bad). It's definitely a short and sweet hike but our small child wouldn't have been able to do it on foot.
Park at the trail head on 26/Sunset Hwy- there is a very obvious sign for the trail and space to park.

Nice shady short hike to stretch your legs on a warm day

Good hike. If you try to go all the way around the lake there are several false trails on the back side so be careful. First mile is all up hill.
