We love Horse Lake. It's an easy pack in and there are great camping spots around the lake. There are usually a few day hikers that come through but overall it's a pretty quiet trail.

Beautiful, varying scenery through woods and meadows and nothing beats arriving at the lake itself for a nice, private swim before you head back. Beware mosquitos and horse flies for the 20-30 minutes nearest the lake.
