Beautiful easy hike. Super muddy today.

There are two ways up from the parking lot. Make sure you take the one on the right, it's longer in distance but has less snow and isn't steep. The trail on the left is steep, icy and snowy (and very beautiful.) Great hike in the fall!

Great shady trail. Just completed this today (September 29th) and the trail was very muddy/slushy and snowpacked in some places. There are actually a few trails to get up to Dog Park. Dogs absolutely love this trail though, especially if they are water dogs because of the lake. Parking can a little crazy and you might have to deal with angry people looking for a parking space.

Great hike. Gradual incline. Coverage from the sun is a great plus in the summer. a little chilly this time of year so dress accordingly.

Great trail. Decided to this one because a moose was blocking one of the other ones, dogs loved the lake at the top
