A nice easy hike with great views the whole way. Lots of shade along the way. Crystal clear lake! The mountain lake loop took about 1.5-2hours.

I don't think there's a single moment that doesn't have a beautiful view. Even the areas that move away from the Lake have gorgeous old growth and the paths are very picturesque. If you go clockwise, the dam at the very Southern point is a great spot to stop for snacks before heading back to the car.

Nice and easy described this trail. Went clockwise. A few areas of switchback here and there. Going the other direction would have avoided that. Enjoy

Beautiful lake views. Well maintained trail. An easy to moderate (some switchbacks) hike.

One of my favorite walks. Around every corner is a new and fantastic view.

This well maintained trail was accessible with our Bob stroller and I was even able to jog it in parts. Nice lake views and varied elevation without being too challenging.

Easy hike in beautiful Moran State Park. Not crowded, well kept trails and signing. 4.8 miles total. Mountain Lake is serene.

Hike around a lake, views of lake, that's all.

My husband hates inclines and this was the perfect flat hike for us. We went in a rainstorm and it was beautiful and the trees mostly shielded us from the pouring rain, so that it was only drizzly for us. A really gorgeous adventure. I highly recommend doing it in the rain if you don't mind getting wet! We can't wait to go back.
