We completed this during a three-day trip with Pawnee Pass. it was lovely. There was a bit of snow on the shady part of the mountain even though it was August. Beautiful flowers, mushrooms, rivers, and falls.

Really enjoyed this trail with my wife.

Average hike. Their is a river at the beginning, and then no water features after that. We went in about 1 1/2 miles and turned around.

Beautiful. Should be marked as Easy

Trail was gorgeous other than all the horse poo. Worth it, just watch your step! ;)

Great easy hike with awesome views of the mountains. A few fun creek crossings too

Great hike, but I would probably rate it as an easy rather than moderate. Despite the recent snow, the trail was almost all clear.

Very beautiful and unique lake. Saw pine martons, birds, moose, and chipmunks. Late September has the Aspens changing to golden yellows as well.

Wide groomed trail around a beautiful lake. Someone saw a moose in the area. We saw many beaver dams. Very pretty mountainous surroundings. The trail was easy to negotiate. Aspen trees beginning to turn into gold for the fall.

Beautiful lake, with great mountain views as well as the aspens changing color. Much of the trail is just in dense forest, which is why I say 4 stars. And lots of horse poop, lots. Was moderately crowded as it is easy to get to and an easy hike. I did this the day after I got mountain sickness, and it made for a good recovery hike.

Love this scenic trail. It gets a bit rocky at times but I managed without my hiking poles. Not very many people on the path. We were there on a Tuesday before the Labor Day weekend. The trail is mostly shady and surrounded by forest and stream. The beginning and end have gorgeous lake views. Awesome hike.
Dog loved it.

Loved this trail! Fairly flat and extremely kid friendly! We chose to go up a little further to see the waterfalls and then turned back around to finish the loop. Very shady through most of the hike.
Beware! Hunting season is starting and they have an outfitter on site with horses.

Beautiful trail and lake on top. 1/3 or so is a lot of elevation gain with a lot of switch backs. The app mislead you and the trail is longer than 9 mls. The app shows the direct way following the creek but not the trail!!
It took us almost 7 hours for the following reasons - if group with camping gear 35 pound a bag, rain on and off that slow us down at least an hour and the switch backs with no end !!!
Well worth though. With no heavy pack it is a great hike.

great trail. it was a little rocky in some places but will definitely do it again.

Our family LOVED this hike! The drive along Granby Lake to get to the trailhead was beautiful. Then we did the loop around the lake. It was an easy walk/hike with beautiful scenery. We hiked with a 12, 9 and 6 year old and they all enjoyed it! It took us a couple hours, with a few stops to take cover from rain & take photos. We would definitely come back!

beautiful trail and views around the lake. lowest elevation 8286 ft, highest elevation 8307 ft. only reason i didnt give it 5 stars is horses also share the trail and we were dodging horse poop quite a bit!

Beautiful hike! Had 5 kids ranging from 5 to 13. It took 2.5 hours. But we stopped to take pictures, water stops and take in scene.

We loved this hike. We saw waterfalls, running creeks and rivers, a moose family crossing the lake, wild flowers, the views are amazing. It took us about 4 hours to walk around the lake but we stop a few times to take in the scenery and enjoy nature. There is a bathroom (portable pooper) at base of hike. Saw a view other hikers but not many. Wear long pants as there's lots of lower brush.

One of my favorite hikes!
