This description is not accurate. We saw that this was considered an easy 7.4 mile out and back which would be a little over 3 miles each way which was perfect for a family backpack trip. Perhaps that is correct from the Six Lakes Trailhead. However, the app says the trail begins at Lucky Lake trailhead. From that trailhead it is more like 11 miles out and back and a difficult 1000 ft assent. We took off from Lucky Lake Trailhead and then hiked another steep and very hot 4.5 miles to Senoj Lake. Once there, the lake was great. It is shallow and almost no campers. Great solitude. Please correct this information about the trailhead. From Lucky Lake trailhead it is NOT an easy hike and it is 2 miles further than from the other direction.

BackpackingGreat!

Hiked to Doris Lake, set a camp, and then hiked to Senoj (out and back). Senoj Lake is shallow but the hike was beautiful. We stayed overnight at Doris. The lake is pretty deep and the water is crystal clear. It was a weekday, but there were still 3-4 other groups around the lake, so this place must be crowded on weekends. There was quite a bit of horse poop on the trail between the trailhead and Doris Lake.

Lakes are beautiful! But definitely still pretty muddy and TONS of mosquitoes. In between the lakes there isn’t much view except for trees and still enough snow down to lose the trail a few times. Would recommend later in the year

Trail is beautiful up to Lucky Lake. However there is still significant snow pack on the trail past the lake. Had to turn around because it was difficult to follow the trail at that point. Will try this trail again in July, as It’s going to be a few weeks yet before the snow melts out.

Easy trail to pretty Lakes. We took our dog and Doris Lake was perfect for swimming and fetching. Mosquitoes were persistent. Glad we had bug spray.

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.

Backpacking

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.
