This hiking is so amazing, it really challenged me as a hiker. I recommend doing the trail in late spring/ early summer. I went and saw almost no one else on the trail. You will probably see some snow at the beginning of the trail if you go during late spring / early summer but it will dissipate quickly. Also be advised you are hiking downhill during the whole hike and then uphill on the return. So, mentally prepare yourself for that. The trail head says the hike only a few miles but it really is the full 7. The sign is incorrect.

This trail used to be a favorite growing up. The boat dock is no longer there and access was very difficult. The trail has not been maintained and we had to go around MANY downed trees, sometimes easy other times not. Ascended to the lake by taking the direct route, descended by taking the river route. Both are in the same condition.

Hiked this trail many years ago. Started at the Elkhart Parking lot and dropped down and camped at Long Lake. Then continued on a 5 day loop called the Sky Pilot loop. Very pretty lake with good campsites

This is a good family hike. We docked our boat at the end of Fremont Lake and hiked up to the lake over the 4th of July 2014. We took the shorter route (stay to the right when the trail forks) and made it there. It is a beautiful trail and lake.
