Very beautiful hike and there was only few people on the trail. But if you decide to spend a day by the lake, be prepare to pay for a permit.

Little elk creek turns in to Dalton Lake trail once you hit the white rock road about 3 miles into it. The last .3 miles is all road, not trail, so that's a little less than ideal, but still a beautiful hike.

This is the same trail listed as Little Elk Creek. It follows the stream and has several pretty little waterfalls.
