This is a lovely loop trail, not too difficult, combination of creekside, forest, and meadow stretches. It is very popular with mountain bikers, so it loses a star for that (but the flip side, is that it is excellent for mountain biking!) Pretty much all the trails in this area are similar, insofar as they are not that difficult (no serious elevation changes) and are very pleasant, but are mostly used by mountain bikers.

This was a very nice hike although we did not make it up to the lake. At the beginning of the trail a portion of the log bridge has been washed out, the trail became difficult to follow due to lingering snow pack. There were also downed trees in several places across the trail. There were a lot of signs of moose in the area so keep your eyes peeled. A four wheel drive or vehicle with some clearance is needed for the road up as it is pretty rough. We will be trying this one again once it thaws a bit more.

Don't try this without some heavy 4wd...Hike is mostly deep trees with a pretty underwhelming lake at the top. Only view is of the small lake. Still some snow pack at the top, bring your gaiters.

Awesome hike, rough road to get to the TH though so be prepared. I was able to pick my way up in a FWD, normal clearance vehicle... just need to be careful :)

Beautiful hike. Rough drive to trailhead. 4wd a must, with adequate ground clearance.

Amazing every year
