We hiked this trail yesterday with our pup. It’s a beautiful trail with views of Silver Lake and the Falls of Lana. It took our group of 4 (plus pup) 3 hours to complete. We did stop at the small beach near the picnic area of Silver Lake to let the pup swim and chase tadpoles. The trail is accurately rated as moderate, as there is a lengthy incline at the beginning to get to the falls and there are parts around the lake where you have to navigate up and around large rocks, boulders, and fallen trees. Don’t let that discourage you! It was great to have a trail that varied in terrain and the trees provided a welcome shelter from the sun. We highly suggest it!

A very nice walk around a mountain lake. The trail is easy to follow. Most of it is a wide dirt path except the right side of the lake which is narrow and has rocks and roots to navigate.

This was such a fun and great hike. The woods are enchanting. I loved the big boulders, blue lichen and falls!

Went on this hike last weekend! Took about 3 hours total. Jumped in the lake right before heading back to car. So much fun!

Great little climb up to the lake. Got a bit confused once I got up there as to where the head of the loop trail was, but figured it out eventually. I agree that going along the right side first is best.

Great hike. I took Mary's advice, and hiked around the right side of the lake first. Glad I did.

A beautiful trail once you pass the water chutes and electric lines. Agree with Mary about the rocks and tree roots. It was a diverse trail, wide and groomed in most areas and more remote and "path like" in others.

Great hike, beautiful views of lake and fall colors, right side of the lake trail is very rocky with many tree roots to traverse. Next time I would take that direction first

Trail was passable today with just hiking boots. Minimal ice and snow. Trail on east side of lake difficult to follow. West side of lake trail more rugged. The ice on the lake made eerie sounds today.
