We did this hike in May and the landscape was carpeted with wild flowers. We continued on to Shepard and Hoover Lakes, taking pictures all along the way. Bring mosquito repellant and your camera. Easy hike for any skill level.

My dad, my 14 year old sister, and myself went backpacking here last week. Beautiful and very easy hike into the Lake. There are plenty of places to set up camp here, with firepits from previous backpackers and plenty of firewood all around. Would recommend bringing an ax if you will be having a fire. There is also a little spring running into the lake with fresh water, but I recommend either using a filter or boil the water to make sure it's clean. From the parking lot to Fehr Lake, it's just over a half mile. Very easy for little ones as well. If you keep following the trail, it will take you to the other 3 lakes. We only went to the first one, which was about another 2 - 2.5 miles to get to, which was shepherd lake. Gorgeous mirror like water with a waterfall on the other side. We only made it to this lake before heading back to Fehr Lake. We tried fishing at both lakes with no luck, but neither of us are big fishers which could explain our bad luck. Overall this is the perfect place to go backpacking if you are a beginner or have little ones. We were the only ones camping here, but there were plenty of hikers coming through during the day. But we camped on the south west side of the lake, which is the opposite side of the trail, so we were not disturbed. We will definitely be returning here next year!

Great for kids and families. Absolutely beautiful scenery. We threw in some fishing with power bait and never got a bight in about 2 hours. This may have been because we were fishing the middle of the day though.

Easy, well maintained trail to three named lakes, plus smaller unnamed lakes. The hike really only gets started at Fehr Lake but goes beyond to Sheppard and Hoover Lakes. For me, an added bonus is Moosehorn Lake, just across the road from the trailhead.

Unless you're an expert mountain biker, would not recommend this trail for biking. We took a group of 24 youth/adults on this trail with bikes and there are many unnegotiable rocky patches that require dismounting. At the end of the trail, we climbed the ridge to the Murdock Basin Road and took that all the way to the Mirror Lake Highway for a total 5-hour trip. The upper section of the MBR has many fallen trees across the road.

Great trail, easy along the beautiful scenic lakes. Dog friendly. I've never seen more than a few people on the trail. Stop and stay for a while, but this time of year have your bug spray handy.

Hit Fehr, Shepherd and Hoover lakes. Then looped around Shepherd lake to see the waterfall on the other side. The trails are pretty muddy in some places, and there's a couple trees down on the trail, but nothing too crazy. Definitely recommend taking bug spray!

Awesome day hike. Did this on 6/28/17. A few little patches of snow but overall clear. Pretty muddy on some parts of the trail though. Mosquitos were pretty bad as well. But I would def do this hike again. Made it to Shepard and Hoover lakes as well and explored around a bit. There was nobody else on the trail the whole time we were there.

Great hike! It was all downhill to get to the lakes, so it was all uphill to get out, but it was not bad. The third lake, Hoover Lake, was the best one. We got to watch an osprey fishing. Other than some noisy people, it was a great day.
