Nice hike with lots of elk, deer and beer sign but saw none of them. Several hawks and an eagle and tons of small birds. Lake was just great and the hike was a little buggy at the beginning but nothing a little deet didn't take care of.

Nice little trail with two backcountry campsites overlooking the lake. The trailhead is not labelled well from the road.. it is at the bottom of a hill on Grassy Lake Road, across from the east side of Grassy Lake Reservoir. Nice and peaceful, wildflowers. Did not see a person in two days. Mosquitoes are a force in mid-late June so be prepared! Good for all skill levels. The first 1/2 mile is uphill, steep at times, but nice and flat after that. The trail drops in to Beula Lake at the end.
