Great family hike. Flat and easy with nice place to jump to the lake (devil's bowl bridge and rocks around it)

What incredible changes to this trail! It is now ADA, wheelchair accessible to behind Devil's Punchbowl. There is a tunnel that is very dark and goes through the hillside. If you take the rough tail to the left of the tunnel you can access Devil's Punchbowl and the bridge that goes over it. Took two dogs who enjoyed all the smells.

We wanted to take an easy day hike to simply enjoy the beautiful day and this trail did not disappoint! Absolutely beautiful views of Lake Crescent and the majestic mountains surrounding. We entered via the west end and the trail meanders along the shore with so many great views. If you want an easy hike/walk that is guaranteed to leave you de-stressed and grateful for our beautiful world, this is a great choice!

Totally gorgeous, easy hike, and some lovely water to swim in. (A little cold for my taste, but my friends enjoyed it!) The trail is well cared for and offers beautiful views.

beautiful place! sadly learned the hard way you have to go to camp david jr rd entrance! they have the trail "blocked" where the McKay tunnel is right b4 devils punchbowl is & it says dangerous conditions, but it's safe..looks like they are trying to clear the tunnel out for hikers to do enjoy the entire route. Took a swim at devils punch bowl & boyy the water was cold but it felt good.

Hiked western portion as eastern end is closed at the moment. Unfortunately, only occasional views of the lake. The best views of Lake Crescent were actually at East Beach (take a picnic there!)

CLOSED FOR THE SEASON on the east end. We found this out the hard way. Apparently they've closed it in order to finish paving it.

About a mile is open on the Camp David side but we wanted more of a challenge. The trail status is here:

Lake Crescent is beautiful though, there's a nice picnic spot on East Beach.

A nice relaxing hike with beautiful views of the mountains and Lake Crescent. We hiked the 4 mile unpaved section and then headed back. Only encountered a few mountain bikers.
