I hiked this trail packing 35lbs worth of toddler and gear on my back, with my kids (6,8,12). They all loved it and did great. The beginning of the trail was sort of a steep incline but we made.. The scenery was beautiful and the lake was nice to chill around.

So beautiful! I ran into a bull moose twice. One at the beginning of trail and then at the lake!

My kids (5 and 7) and I hiked the trail for the first time on 6/22. Beautiful scenery throughout the hike, which begins with steady ascending trail. Dry conditions (loose dirt, rocks and sticks) made for a VERY slow decent. Would definitely do again, and highly recommend it.

Nice, short, rewarding hike. There are several shoot off trails, but if you follow the most traveled trail you will make it to the right place.

The snow is still melting so there were some very muddy, unavoidable areas at the top. The initial hike up was rocky and a little steep, but the views at the top were worth it. There was some snow for the kids to play in on the opposite side of the lake. This hike took 2 moms and 6 kids aged 2-14 about 3 hours.

Hiked it 6/10. No snow at all on the hike. Such a beautiful hike and so relaxing and quiet. There wasn't much people hiking it that day. First bit of the hike is straight incline but overall it was very worth it!

Like other reviewers said, steep for about the first mile. Hard with a toddler on your back but then evened out and easy to complete. Ran into a couple of big moose super close to the trail, keep your eyes open. Beautiful view at the top.

Nice little hike, but extremely crowded. It is actually surprisingly steep for the first mile or so, but levels out into a nice stroll the rest of the hike to the lake. Great little lake and well worth the hike!
