I was disappointed in this trail. The pictures made it look like a pristine lake in the mountains, when in fact it is dammed up, and you’re looking at ski lifts and related equipment the entire time. Also, although it is a fairly short hike, the trail is steep all the way.

11/11/2017... 3-5inch snow cover, some icy areas, microspikes and poles are probably useful. GORGEOUS!

Fairly easy and beautiful hike. I would highly recommend even for beginners. When I went I saw quite a few older hikers and even hikers carrying small kids on their backs. So bring your family or friends along for this one!

Went around August and the weather and scenery was perfect. Bring a good camera or make sure your phone battery is charged because you'll want to take a lot of pictures.

My only complaint about the trail is how skinny it is, and it doesn't help that it's a relatively high trafficked trail.

Short and easy hike, best done early morning before the trail gets too crowded and while the deer and moose are grazing. It's great to continue on the trail up to Lakes Martha and Catherine.

Great hike! Pretty steep at first, but the lake is worth it. Even saw a few moose :)

Nice hike. The first bit is a bit steep, but not rocky and easy to navigate. I just took my time. The lake is really pretty too, but you can't swim in it. :(
