I did this trail on the way to Tuck and Robin Lakes. Very easy access to the trail which means tons of hikers. Everybody is nice that I met but the bathrooms are closed here at the trailhead so plan for that.

The trail has many small stream crossings so waterproof boots would help a lot. I counted three large camp sites at this area (trailside) and I'm sure they're more if you managed to make it to the other side of Hyas Lake.

Beautiful place and if you are looking to get out with minimal effort, this is the place to go.
Just take your time and look at the wild paintbrush in bloom through the meadows

Happy Hiking y'all.

Great minimal elevation backpack trip! Skeeters were a bit much till you get past the marsh area, but were fine at the lake. Site was large, clean and has a wilderness toilet near by.

This was an easy and fun hike. The lake is so beautiful! I would give it 5 Stars except the bathrooms are boarded up at the trailhead and there's tons of people. lots of great camping spots and spectacular views!

Perfect hike for capable young kids. My buddy and I took our kids (Ages: 9, 7, 6, & 5) over the weekend up the Deception Pass trail to Hyas Lake or an over night camp experience. Achievable for all ages with a little help for the youngest. A fair number of creek crossings. Suggest waterproof boots. Minor bugs, but recommend repellent. The lake was swollen with snowmelt run off. Fortunate to find a camp spot. Would recommend early arrival to stake a claim. Definitely coming back as there is more to explore.

Easy hike, no mosquitoes, some snow on the ground.. worth the 45 min drive to get to the trailhead going 20mph . Peaceful hike!

Quick and easy walk to the lake. Gorgeous views and the water is incredible if you decide to go for a swim.

Short and flat. Quick hike, less than 60 min to reach the lake. Beautiful spot and able to swim. Pretty buggy.

Long drive (45 min once on logging road) so if I were to do it again I would go deeper and backpack, or trail run.

Snow everywhere! The road is washed out about three miles from the trailhead and there is water over the road.

A great easy hike to a beautiful peaceful lake with gorgeous views. Some small creeks to cross I recommend going all the way around the lake.

Nice easy trail to a beautiful calm lake. Didn't see wildlife, other than chipmunks but did see tracks and evidence if large game.

Easy hike to the campsite with a lovely view of the lake. Wanted to take a day hike up to Marmot but thunderstorms and lightning nixed that plan. Very pretty and popular
