This is definitely an easy path. It's flat without any rocky cliffsides to climb/hike through like in Cecret Lake (which is not easy for beginners!). The path is well maintained and has boardwalks. I feel most people can do this trail without much effort. In fact, I wouldn't call this a hike, it's more like a walk! A beautiful one, no doubt!

Excellent trail.( I also Bring a paddleboard in warmer months!) Flat, easy, shaded and nice. Very quiet and stick around for their evening shows on the weekends.

Good trail to get your hiking rhythm back. Very easy trail and great for young children. Many people fishing at banks of the lake but the traffic during to week is light. Wooden walkways in areas that are wet or bogey. Crushed sandstone of the trails. Nice photography spots to catch Bald Mountain which towers over the lake.

We camp at Mirror Lake every year and have treasured walking around the lake with our little ones. Usually we come early in the season and during the week, but that wasn't possible. The late-season weekend crowd gave it a different feel. When you and your grubby, not-so-little-anymore kids are fishing and a lady wearing high heels walks by on the trail, it just feels like it's not "your" beloved Mirror Lake anymore. They have made improvements to the trail, leveling it out and putting in gravel and retaining walls. Weird as it sounds, that made us feel nostalgic for the old Mirror Lake too. I thought the hard packed dirt was easier footing than the new gravel. But we saw a lady traverse the whole thing in her motorized wheelchair, so that's a positive change since I can see my husband and I doing that in 30 years! On a weekday...

A gorgeous, easy walk around beautiful Mirror Lake. Well defined and maintained trail, with boardwalks over any marshy areas. Went on Monday, Aug 7, 2017 - trail was a tad "busy", but mostly people with children sparsely dotting the lake fishing. Met some great people - and they joined us for the walk. Very easy (flat) walk - not at all technical - but the views of the lake with Bald Mountain in the backdrop was breathtaking! Allow time to stop and read the signs about nature - and to get acclimated with the elevation. Zero bugs, pretty flowers, and a nice ride out there. We left from Park City, drove to Mirror Lake (2 Wheel Drive rental car) and then kept going to Evanston, WY., where we jumped on to Rte. 80 for the return. Easily stopping along this beautiful ride in places to take photos or small walks to meadows, waterfalls. The people were so nice, the scenery beautiful. Bring water/snacks - not many convenience stores along the trip. Pack it in and pack it out.

Very popular place to go and beat the heat, so it's gets pretty crowded.

Great easy hike around the lake. Nice reflection views if the winds are calm. Afternoon showers/thunderstorms hit this area a lot.

This is a really easy hike, more of a walk, really. It's beautiful and a great place to get out of the summer heat! Our family loves to go to Mirror Lake.

Great, flat trail. Our 3 & 6 year old daughters did it without a problem and enjoyed stopping along the way to put their feet in the lake.

We walked around the lake which was an easy trail. There were kayaks and fisherman around the lake as well as fall colors. It made for a great day.

Trail around the lake is very easy - plenty of places to stop off and fish. We visited on a very busy day but were still able to find a campsite without reservation. Wished we had a canoe so we could boat across the lake - beautiful scenery.
