This is a great, paved, easy trail to do with kids. We went the first week of July and it was kinda buggy, bring repellent! There are picnic tables near the lake that make for a picturesque stop for lunch if desired. You'll need a NW Forest pass --$5 for one day, or $25 for the year, can be purchased on line or at a participating store (BiMart in Yakima sells them).

Loved the walks around the lake. The trail is well maintained and paved. I took my parents (in late 70s) there and they loved it as well. Picture perfect view!

7/8/2017 (Saturday) - The view is fantastic in the sunny morning around 2/3 of the loop clockwise. The trail is paved.

This is such a great trail for families with little ones. I took my 4 kids from ages 2-12 and they loved it. The water, wildlife and beauty of this little spot make it a great easy trip for small children.

Very pretty, short, easy trail! No show shoes required since the snow is packed down to tight. Make sure to get a parking permit! Once we got back to the car, almost everyone had an $80 ticket posted to their windshield. :( apparently no one was aware that a pass was needed just to park on the shoulder of the road.
