Pretty, but packed! We went in August along with everyone else and their dogs. We were lucky to get a parking spot. This is a very easy walk around a lake.

Beautiful views and family friendly. It was too chilly for bugs, so we didn’t have to deal with any bug spray. Even though the parking lot was packed it didn’t feel overwhelmingly busy — there were still plenty of picnic tables and fire pits open and lots of spots to fish.

Beautiful area! Great path to walk. Some parts was dirt, other parts were a wooded path. There were lots of places around the lake to day camp.

The view was so amazing and it’s totally worth going! Lots of bugs thought it’s hard to hike with them. There for wear a lot of bug spray!!!

Excellent lakeside trail! Without the bugs it would be a 5 star trail for the views alone but what makes it better is how family friendly it is!!

60+. We had a nice stroll around the lake. We even encountered some families with strollers. Apparently this is a well-stocked lake lots of people fishing and kayaking. Good facilities. Very picturesque. There was still a little runoff, however, the trail was generally dry.

great easy trail for all skill levels. Just went for one night yesterday and had a great time. Good for all ages as well, great place for families. I'd recommend reserving a camp site if possible.

The snow has been cleared so you can drive down to the day-use parking lot. The bathrooms are open. The lake is no longer frozen over. The path is a little tricky right now with lots of slippery spots of mud and snow. It’s doable with the right gear but not the easy, family friendly hike it usually is. 6/29/2019. Maybe in several weeks it will be drier. Maybe.

The snow blocked the road down, but we walked down and the view was definitely worth it. Most of the lake was frozen over but we could see the mirror in the portion

This is always a great hike while you wait for the afternoon hatch on the upper Provo.

Nice easy stroll, not so much a hike.

Super casual walk, no incline. A lot of people around paddle boarding and fishing.

I loved this hike. Nice, easy hike. Felt like much less than the 2.8 miles. My son kept telling me that it's not a hike, it's a walk. Beautiful scenery ... mountains, lake, flowers, trees, birds. And fresh pine scent.

The lake is still frozen and surrounded by a couple feet of snow. Good if you want to relive winter in May! The views on the drive up are beautiful!

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.
