Did this hike yesterday, with the addition of an ascent of Clinton Peak. Very pretty area, but hiking a road isn't my favorite, and on a weekend it could really suck to share it with ATVs & modified 4-wheelers. Climb of Clinton from the lake is a workout, especially the final slope.

Beautiful autumn hike! Trail in great condition, flaming aspens, and lots of sunshine. Started at southern TH and hiked loop without northern spur - 12.7 miles in a little less than 6 hours. Only saw 1 other person the whole time (biker). Forest, meadows, beaver ponds, and bubbling creeks.

Rock crawl here..nice reward at the top..be sure to start early..or you'll be that guy.be aware of hikers and bikers

A great trail, nice stream along most of the walk, lots of beautiful wildflowers, good views, and a nice spot to stop and have lunch by a little waterfall. smelled the dead horse mentioned in another review but never saw it. all in all very nice trail.

Loved this hike!!! Gorgeous scenery! I'm a native who's been hiking all my life and I saw more interesting beauty than almost any other place in the state.

We just went for a one nighter on the 19th and 20th. The trail was awesome and we still got to see a good amount of wildflowers. I had a newbie backpacker with us and I'd say the hiking was a bit harder for him than expected. We went counterclockwise and the last bit of major ups and downs were tough. There was a lot of access to water, dead and down firewood to use, and the trail remained obvious throughout the loop. I'd say we ran into a max of 8-10 people on the trail too. All in all, beautiful country and an awesome hike!
