I love this trail! It's very easy and the perfect trip for beginning backpackers. Also a quick one-night when you have to be back at work the next day. It's pretty flat most of the way except for towards the end just before Island Lake, you start going up a little. Not many place to pitch a tent at Feely, but quite a few around Island Lake.

Great hike, and the lakes are beautiful. If you make it to the third lake it’s almost 11 miles there and back, but well worth it.

Took the kids here (ages 9&10) for their first backpacking trip. It was a nice, easy hike just right for introducing the kids to overnight hikes. The trail is well marked and beautiful the entire way through. You’ll park at Carr lake trail head, start your hike and after you pass Carr lake on the right, you’ll come to The Feely Lake dam. Pass the dam and you’ll see beautiful views of Feely lake on your left. Next, you’ll see two small ponds, a slight ascend then you’ll finally see a beautiful rewarding view of island lake. It’s About 2 miles from the Carr lake trailhead to island lake. We saw many dogs, but we didn’t bring ours because we weren’t sure if they were allowed.

Gorgeous views all around, especially from the Sand Ridge trail! There seems to be quite a number of off trail camping options at some unnamed lakes towards the end of the trail. Highly recommend swimming at Island Lake.

Bring a high clearance vehicle to get to the trailhead and make sure that your tires are solid because the road to get there is rough. One member of our group returned from our trip to find a slow leak in his back tire despite driving a truck.

This is a beautiful and sacred area. Beautiful views!

Excellent hike with beautiful scenery and so many lakes you will never be wanting! Last 4 miles to the trailhead are on dirt road at 10 mph but the time is totally worth it!

Not sure why this is rated as EASY? It was a pretty tough hike up to the first lake, 2.6 miles nearly all uphill, and nearly all over boulder-strewn narrow paths. It was pretty warm, mid 80's and we're in our 50s and we dawdled a bit and rested but it took us nearly 2.5 hours to get to the first lake. It was beautiful every step of the way but this is not an easy trail. We've done 5 miles hikes on trails listed as moderate with much more ease.

Pretty tough hike up to the lake but worth the trip. Lots of people and dogs though!
If you get to this point make sure you make it up to the High Loch Leven. Fewer people too! The added hike only adds about 20 minutes.

This View point is an easy walk over this Hill from Loch Leven Lake.
It was little smokey but a nice view for sure. At the top there was no signal for the phone's GPS. Signal was spotty all over up there.

A great deal of this trail is boring and cannot be described as difficult at all, unless the difficulty is in tolerating the jeep trail and the "nothing interesting to see." Only after about 3 miles have passed on the way out, the forest opens up with older growth, a comfortable spacious place. The last mile is rather rocky, technical hiking with steep ups and downs, which almost makes it worth walking those first 3 miles, almost. I would like to go to that area again but will not take this trail to get there. L

Great hike in the beautiful Sierras up to an absolute beautiful lake! The only complaint I had for this trail is that in several areas the trail was not well marked. Trail needs some maintenance work done to it. Many down trees, manzanita over growing trail, and easy to lose trail in many areas. But if you are good with maps, GPS, or even using your smart phone to navigate, you can definitely find the trail again in areas where it is well marked. And reaching beautiful Beyers Lake is a great reward!

Been doing this great hike out of Eagle Lakes since 1999. I would bring football coaches and teammates each summer to help us grow closer as a team. Each and every guy has since then been going to this beautiful lake with more and more people every year. Best place to get away from the world for a few days if your from the Grass Valley/ Nevada City area.

Fun hike! It was worth the drive up and the hike wasn't too difficult. Good hike for children and beginners!
