Great easy hike. Weather was beautiful and warm. I suggest you go when it’s sunny out just because there’s is lots of shade. Make sure you bring insect repellant. Definitely Kid friendly. Nice area to have a picnic at the beginning. We did find a spot by the lake where there were trees fallen and we just sat there in the shade and enjoyed our lunch! Pass required, or pay $5 for day fee. I have the northwest pass and it was allowed.

This was a bit too short for us - and we mistakenly thought it would have views of Lake Wenatchee. Great for families but would skip if you’re looking for a view and a workout.

This is a beautiful little trail that my kids and I do after finishing their schoolwork. It’s really easy and protected if it’s raining. The colors are beautiful on this trail and are very saturated after a rain. Bugs can be bad, but they haven’t been too bad so far.

Walked this trail yesterday with my older dog. We both enjoyed the walk in spite of at least 6 blowdown trees across the trail. It was a bit buggy but manageable. Trail is very shady so it’s a great one for hotter weather. Met several parties on the trail as it is a popular one for locals & visitors.

Easy hike for packing in kiddo and dogs on leash. Nice shade most of the hike and beautiful spots to sit and eat by the lake.

A few trees block the trail but it is easy to climb over them. The lake is beautiful. It was a little bit crowded today. Northwest Forest pass is needed or $5 fee per a day fee.

We really enjoyed this hike. We went mid week and only saw 2 other groups of people. Don’t forget the bug spray. Mushrooms are starting to pop up there. There is one small section where the skunk cabbage grows that smells horrible but it is such and interesting plant to see. We went when it was windy and the trees were dropping lots of branches so be aware of your surroundings and look up. Great day out though definitely recommend this hike for families.

Family friendly & a fun hike into the lake. There are small minnows around July & dragonflies doing their thing! We do this hike every summer & when we have friends come & visit!

Pretty trail. Lots of shade, but lots of bugs! Good hike if you're in the area and looking for something short and easy, but it's nothing special.

Is a stroll in the park, no difficult level. Shade is everywhere and trail is wide enough for social distancing. It is indeed popular and touristy. Most likely to find all sorts of people and paddle boarders in the lake. There is fish and is a really calm place. A lot of people running and walking the dogs. It has Day Pass envelopes available on $5 per person. No pen provided in the wooden box. Also a good place to see wild flowers.

An easy trail that is great for a quick hike. There were a couple of downed trees along the trail, but they were easy to climb over. We had our dogs with us and it was easy to do with them. The trail is very obvious up to the lake. The lake is very clear and calm, very beautiful. I wish it was a little easier to explore around the lake, but the views were decent even still. I would recommend this trail if you're in the area. I saw a lot of reviews about bugs but this time of year there were none! Only complaint I have is another hiker who had his dog off leash. Please follow the rules and leash your dog.

Easy uphill half mile hike from Glacier View Campground. Hidden Lake at the end of the trail is very beautiful and serene. There was a beaver lodge on the opposite shore. I was there in early October - great colors from the changing tree leaves reflecting on the water.

Short but steep climb up from the campground to a beautiful little lake in the shadow of the mountains. If you’re looking for a more mellow hike, come in from the eastern trailhead off the dirt road before the campground.

We went during the week so no one else was on the trail or around the lake. The water was cold but worth braving. The bugs were not a problem for us.

Great short, easy hike. Went late on Saturday morning and it was pretty busy. nice view at the pond.

Nice, super easy walk through the forest to a small pond. Very popular so don’t expect to have the trail or lake to yourself. Pond is kinda overgrown, so you can’t really hike around it. Decent view of Nason Ridge and a couple nice “peek-a-boo” views of Lake Wenatchee. Like anywhere else in the area, can be very buggy so bring your spray!

snow shoe review- noticed no one has comment on going in the snow. We went in march for snow shoeing. Had to park about 3/4 of a mile from the trail head where they had stopped plowing. We went on a sunny day and hadn't had any fresh snow in about a week. we brought snow shoes but were able to hike in with out the shoes. Trail is easy to see and follow, and was well packed snow. We only encountered one other couple on a sunny Saturday. Beautiful hike, lake was snow covered, and no traffic.

Terrific trail, I got lost and ended up doing the loop! No need for bug spray in November! However, on a windy day, do bring your chainsaw as trees can fall across the road! I will attempt to attach photos!
