I was hoping for a 5miles + hike, ended up with 2 miles. Not sure if I made a shortcut. For a hot summer day ( high 90s) ,this trail had perfect shade throughout. Lots of people fishing and Kayaking. Some pets. no bikes while I was there. 3 fee. Found 2 sets of restrooms. Volleyball court and picnic tables available. No swimming. A nice picnic spot as well.

Awesome trail. Not as crowded as we were expecting on 8/7/20 which was a Thursday. As stated below when you have a hard time following the trail look for man made rock stacks. Lots of cool little caves within the rocks to peek into. We saw what we believe was a Mohave Green on our way out. Had we not been paying attention we wouldn’t have known he was even there as he was tucked up under the rock ledge. Plenty of spots close enough to the river to take a quick dip when you get warm and want a break. As always bring lots of water and snacks.

Incredible hike, I loved it. What makes this trail hard is that the most strategic path forward is not always obvious so you have to investigate and try different things, but I could safety make my way all the way to the end save a couple short hops down or so. It was the hardest technical climb I've done, but in retrospect the maneuvers *seemed* much more precarious than they actually were-- if you chose the right path it was all pretty safe and doable throughout, especially if you have a buddy. There were definitely a couple times where I would've given up and turned around had someone not come thru on a route I hadn't thought of, which made the route passable! The Colorado river at the end was just incredible. Tips: - A couple minutes into the hike, there was a deep puddle where it wasn't obvious how to avoid it without going around a precarious ledge. I wasn't confident enough to make my around it, so I just walked straight thru the puddle and got my shoes wet-- not a big deal. From there on out, I could find a safe way thru each obstacle while staying dry. On my way back, I was confident enough to climb over the puddle without stepping in! - Like everyone says, the 30-feet drop is actually not bad at all if you just follow the trail on the right-most side.

Beautiful trail! There is a lot of burned areas but The main attraction for sure is the little Colorado winding along the trail the entire way. lots of pretty wild flowers and butterflies while we went on our trail and the waterfall at the end was nice. previous people's comments are correct The trail goes on past the waterfall just a bit and then is overgrown. We turned back from there. We got caught in a monsoon storm but stayed a light rain and only distant thunder which just added to the fun. Great hike.

Counterclockwise was super nice. Starts off mellow then gets steadily more remote and more difficult. Easy to moderate. Finished at 2pm in August with light sweat. High 80s and breezy. Good for bikes and dogs too. Not to crowded on a Saturday.

First mile or two is pretty steep incline up a fairly exposed ridge, so probably best to go early before it gets too hot. Once you top off the ridge it evens out and is a lovely flat walk through shaded forest. It dips down a bit once you get close to the lake. The lake was cool and had plenty of space to spread out, but like others have mentioned it is accessible by car - so you wont be able to be totally secluded.

You have to be crafty to find your way down. But the juice is definitely worth the squeeze! The Colorado river is . Trick: follow the foot prints!

Awesome trail. Clockwise is much more scenic. Very easy to lose the trail, AllTrails map helped.

Beautiful walk along the water. I love this trail! It is a little muddy in spots as others have said. I went early on a weekday and had it to myself until I was a half mile from the parking lot on the return.

People come in from all over the country to take pictures of these birds. There is turtles and frogs. All the way round the lake. It’s quite fascinating. Everyone is so friendly.

HikingGreat!

hikes trail from 300 road north to knoll lake and back. 1.5 miles each way. High elevation in the cool pines, lots of shade, ponderosa and doug fir. easy to follow, trail work just completed. many rock cairnes and blaze marks. fairly level with gradual drop first 3/4 mile, then drops into canyon bottom. Watch for barb wire in lower canyon from old cattle fence and rolled up wire near the trail. a few dead snags in this area that may fall over trail in the future, heads up. Trail ends at south end of lake. good lunch spot. Wish the Forest service would extend the trail to the campground on the west side of the lake above the water edge a ways.

Getting there requires several miles on a dirt road, recommend taking a SUV or truck for it is a bumpy ride. The trail isn't tough, just long if you make it to the end. Bring lots of water if you hike it in the summer. I would hike it again.

West fork is amazing. Stick to the left to stay on oak creek trail which is separate then west fork. Trail is hard to decipher and slightly overgrown, but stick by the creek and you’ll be good. Dog and I chose to wade through the creek all the way to the water fall and back. Very treacherous and risky yet extremely memory filled. My dog votes it a 10/10 if you do it right.

Good walking trail with some nice views of the lake. Thank you to the person who took the time and mark the trail with white dots in some areas.

Nice shady trail. Was hoping to get further into the canyon but it becomes quite rocky about 2 miles in.

Easy to moderate hike along a creek with scenic views. At the beginning/end you need to scale a concrete spillway but that's the only difficult part. Very few people on the path. The end of the trail isn't obvious, you'll just find a lot more rocks and trees blocking your path at a certain point. That's the end.
