Trail after you get to Bruce lake is completely overgrown with blueberry bushes. We walked through in fishing waders. If we didn’t have them on we would have been scraped and scratched. The bushes are over my head, I am 5’2”. Very dense. Very uncomfortable. There is no views or lake access after the first open area you arrive at. It is more or less a very long walk in bushes and some swampy areas.

Attempted the trail today, 7/11/17. Narrow trail, crowded with vegetation. As a tall guy, I spent 80% of my time ducking and weaving. Made it 1.86 miles to the junction with Telephone Trail and there the trail became almost completely overgrown, so we turned around. An unpleasant walk- but very remote, if that is what you seek.

Very pretty, but very overgrown.
