Great trail that is lightly used even during peak times. Lots of mosquitos though

I wouldn't call this trail hard. Not more than moderate, possibly easy. Mom and I had a great time hiking all the way to Senoj, stopping for significant photo opps at both Doris Lake and Blow Lake. There was hardly anyone else there when we went. It's hard to turn around and go back when you know there is even more awesome wilderness scenery to see farther along the trail. Apparently we went early enough in June to avoid the mosquitoes.

We stopped a Dorris lake for a couple of nights in mid July. The hike was very easy. LOTS of mosquitos. We used lots of deet and mosquito head nets, still got bit. Lake has a few views, I found best from hiking to South end of lake or swimming to middle. Lake was perfect temp. I saw a few fish jumping too far to reach with my setup. Wish I had a float tube. Lake had a shallow rocky/sandy long shelf all around lake. A couple of really good campsites on back side of lake, trail is a bit difficult to follow around lake, but well worth extra privacy. Bring lots of deet, head nets, and bite cream! We hid in tent in the morning and evenings.

Great backpacking trip. 6 miles from the Lucky Lake trailhead and a great lake with a view of the South Sister.
