I combined this with Maple Pass and Rainy Lake as well to make a nice day hike. Easy hike to Lake Ann, perfect for families with kids. Plenty of shade and a great place to eat lunch at Lake Ann. When I was there, there were dozens of jumping fish at the lake who would literally jump out of the water, even just a few feet off shore! Maybe 5 inches or so long. Not sure what fish they are but they certainly put on a show when I was eating my sandwich!

Lake Ann is usually a side hike when you are hiking Maple Pass Loop Trail. There is not a significant amount of access to the lake. But you have amazing views of the lake from the ridge hike around it.

Lake Ann is an easy hike. The ridge is a moderate and long hike.

If you are looking for an easy short hike that involves a lake, there are an abundant amount of other lakes in the area that would be recommended. Mainly for access and views.

A beautiful hike, and good for all skill levels as far as Lake Ann. It gets more "strenuous" if you go on up to Maple Pass, but the views make it a 5 star experience! And, it's out of the National Park so our Border Collies could have the freedom to run. If folks want search dogs to come find them, the dogs need to stay in shape by having off-leash adventures with their human partners. By the way, the distance round trip to Maple Pass is about 10 miles...
