It was a good easy trail. Very serene and peaceful. But definitely a one and done trail.

Saw some trumpeter swans, but other than that, this trail was not interesting or scenic.

Nice easy walk/hike, but between the two of us we had 8 ticks on us by the time we got home and we didn't venture off into any brush.

The gravel path is too loose for biking. our kids could not do it and it was very difficult for me riding a cyclocross bike pulling a bike trailer. Mountain biking the trail would work OK.

It sounds like some people are confused by this trail and I've done it many times (I live in Pullman and visit Turnbull probably twice a month because it is one of my favorite places in Eastern WA). At any rate you get to the Stubblefield Lake Loop by starting on the Pine Lakes Loop. At the back of the loops the tail splits and goes into the trees, take that up and then turn right (away from the visitor's center and toward the road you drive in on) and hike in this direction. The road will split- you can either go up the hill or toward the trees, it is a loop so it doesn't matter. You are now on the trail! I've hiked this in every season now and I think late spring is best for this trail because although it can be muddy if it has rained, the flowers are beautiful in the fields. June was best. Winter can be icy but it still do-able if you have the right supplies. Autumn is nice too, but the auto tour area trails have slightly better colors/views.

$3 parking permit required. started on a 1.25 mile loop around a pond, then a 5.5 ish mile on a gravel road meant for an auto tour. not sure if that was meant to be the trail though? it was great for my husband to break in his new boots as well as test the waters for upping our mileage for future hikes. beautiful day for a nice flat, long walk!

I especially love this in early spring. It seems the lake disappears in summer but magically reappears after every winter.

trail was nice but TICKS LIKE CRAZY! stopped to get the dogs a quick drink of water and they were both COVERED with ticks. make sure to do a flea and tick treatment before going and possibly bring a tick remover for before getting back in car. trail is amazingly gorgeous and will go again but LOTS of ticks at this time.

Wouldn’t consider this a ‘hiking’ trail where one ‘hikes’. But it’s a pretty good walk.

This can be an enjoyable hike in the right conditions. It's not super enjoyable on a hot afternoon, like when I did it. There is virtually zero shade. I was also a little disappointed that there is no clear path to Stubblefield Lake. Therefore, it isn't really destination and isn't even visible from the trail. Normally I am quite explorative, but I already had enough pokey things stuck in my socks, and I wanted to respect the designated trails - even if it's just a gravel road in this case. Not a terrible hike, just not my favorite.

This is a pretty good leg stretcher. It has very nice trails for some of the way, and gravel roads for much of it. There is a lot of open space. It was a cool day in November on the day I hiked, so it was marvelous. I would guess this gets really dusty in the summer. This was a satisfactory day hike, well worth taking the time to drive a couple of hours to get to the trail head. This would be a great place to ride a bike.

First to Review

We actually ended up on this trail as we were completing the Stubblefield trail. Both of these are inside of Turnbull. The lake is small, but pretty. We spotted a porcupine while walking our dog which was pretty cool. Really flat/easy gravel trail. Not a ton of people. Well kept up & overall pleasant. Since this is so close to our house we'll probably go back.
