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.
