Camped at Muskrat Lake. Only saw a handful of people, were the only one at the lakes. Downed trees, but look for paths around them for the bigger gnarlier ones. Woke up to scratch marks in the trees so hang food if camping there!

Lots of down trees on path but really pretty. We were backpacking and be prepared to hike in 7 miles before you find any good spots close to the last lakes

Sweet running/hiking trail. Went to both Teddy Lakes and turnaround. No snow, very dry, lots and lots of mosquitoes (if you stop for a snack, you’ll be eaten), and plenty of fallen trees.

Alltrails has the distance of this hike wrong it's actually 15 miles minimum it was more yesterday due to the amount of trees that were blown down you had to go all the way around some of them because they were so large a lot of snow, a lot of water puddles areas that were just really really wet so I would recommend that you wait until later in order to do this hike. Its better in summer or fall.

Returned on 10/6 to complete this hike. Fall is the perfect time. The colors are lovely especially at Winopee Lake. I definitely recommend journeying all the way there as the area itself is special. I love the lichen hanging from the trees, the boggy quality of the lakes, the meadows, the birds and wildlife...Muskrat Lake is under 10 mi rt. You need to bushwhack to reach both lakes as the trail doesn’t lead right to them and user trails are not apparent. I checked out the Teddy Lakes too for a round trip 15 miles.

No one on the trail. Loved the backside of Cultus Lake with the Aspens and rock outcroppings. Easy walk

This is a relatively easy mostly well maintained trail. We visited Teddy Lakes on our way in and the larger lake had a place to camp and the lake was beautiful and accessible. We continued on to Lake Winopee and camped on a rocky outcropping that had a lovely view of the lake, stars and moonrise. The one bummer was the lake edge has become overgrown with plants. There was no place to get into the lake. We tried walking out in a log but even that put us in muck up to our ankles and there was a lot of algae. We heard on our way out that Snowshoe Lake, only a half mile away, would have probably been a better choice. Some bugs but not too crazy.

Hiked on June 28th. As per the last review, mosquitoes were already ramping up. I only made it 3 miles before turning around due to thunderstorms. Nice trail with minimal blowdown. Cool forest, shady with views of lake off side trails. No bear in sight.

Hiked this trail in late June. It's in a really serene wilderness area with some great trail options. Mosquitoes were pretty abundant. The trail gets a little less maintained the further out you get, but it's pretty easy-going hiking most of the way.

Was a good trail, a little on the dusty side and was a little crowded by Cultus lake but once I got into the wilderness area it was a beautiful hike to a nice campsite over looking winopee lake

I started at the Cultus Lake trailhead for the Winopee Lake trail. Beautiful spots along the trail to jump into Cultus lake. Trail is dense forest and very dusty. I turned off of the Winopee lakes trial to go to Teddy Lakes. I did not track it but guess it was about 9 miles out and back. I highly recommend Teddy Lakes. Beautiful secluded lake. Train ends but about 300 feet east along the lake is a site all prepped for backpacking. Awesome swim!!!

I hiked this trail from Cultus Lake up to the Snoeshow Lake trail. Muskrat Lake is a great camping spot as there is a feeder stream on the north side.

First to Review

Hiked about 3 1/2 miles up this trail. It follows along the eastern edge of Cultus Lake and then veers further north. A variety of wildflowers in bloom, but the trail is very dusty and heavily wooded.
