did this hike on a rainy day last week but it was so worth it. the 3 mi drive on the dirt road isn't great, but i quickly forgot about it once i saw the the abundant wildflowers and varied scenery on the hike. a good workout but not too strenuous, the perfect length for a day hike. little eightmile lake and the actual lake both very beautiful

Hiked up to eightmile lake June 11th at 9:00am -- camped one night at the lake and hiked down at 6 am June 12 2017
details: We won the lottery held at the Leavenworth Ranger Station so we were allowed to Camp at Lake. The road to the trailhead is very bumpy so drive slow. Hiked up and hit raining hail at around 1:00 pm. Got to the lake and it was very cold. I did not bring enough cold weather clothes. It got down to 30 degrees -- so 35 degree difference from starting point. Had deer walk right up to our tents at 11pm. Only real bummer was that you could not have a campfire. All in all a super beautiful not to horribly strenuous hike.

This is a great hike. Beautiful the entire way! There are a few areas that are extremely muddy, a few small creek crossings and one crossing on a log over a raging creek. No bugs. The weather was perfect. The road going in is bumpy.

I hiked here a few weeks ago. There was a decent amount of snow, but it was easy running on it with my yak trax. It was my first hike in the enchantments and it was so beautiful. It looked like Narnia. Can't wait to come back and check out other trails.
