Beautiful! Hard hike but worth it.

Fun and easy walk around beautiful Round Lake. This is perfect for kids and aging dogs. we took our 10 yo Beagle and she did great. We took a rest on one of the benches and saw an osprey dive for something in the water right in front of us. We started to the right if you are facing the boat launch. To the left is the marshy nature walk and you can see frogs, turtles and some times great blue herons. We plan to go back with my 3 nephews!


A few key things to keep in mind before attempting this trail. First, it's in the Avimor subdivision and you want to take the first left after the community center. The trail entrance will be on you right and there is a parking lot relatively close or you can park by the community center pretty easily. AT&T doesn't seem to get service in that area and apple gps will put you at the community center instead of the trail. The second big thing is there are a ton of bugs on this trail; you'll see horrendous swarms (worse than Ponderosa State Park) of mosquitoes at the beginning, so many crickets the grass moves and the biggest grasshoppers I've ever seen further in. Wear bug spray in the later/earlier hours for that beginning but rest assured most of the path just has a bunch of stink bugs and grasshoppers. The trail itself (after the initial portion) is very pretty. Lots of wonderful scenery and wildlife. You'll hear owls and see lizards and deer. It's mostly by running water which is relatively forested over but is similar to a canyon hike. There are many birds but they are more timid than most parks so bring a big lens if you want any great shots. Personally felt like my 300mm was about 200mm to short for anything decent.

love this trail! one of the best I've done so far

Moose lake is a beauty. Was unable to complete loop due to snow covering trail between Moose Lake and blacktail (think that was the trail name? which is part of the loop). Lost trail about halfway up mountainside and had to backtrack. Still a nice hike.

Great loop! A nice ascent, beautiful flowers and lots of butterflies right now! Get there early to beat the crowds. Will definitely do it again!!

We made it about 3/4 of the way to the lake from our base camp at Boulder Lake. Still a lot of snow and the trail was hard to find at times. After fording Rapid Creek too much snow made the trail impossible to find. Absolutely beautiful and can't wait to go back after the snow melts a bit more.

Still a ton of snow on the north side of the lake. Be prepared for trekking over large snow mounds. The trail gets covered occasionally. Snow melt made for a lot of standing and running water. Chacos or Keens highly recommended. Beautiful lake and great backpacking trip.

Beautiful forest trail and very easy hike! We backpacked in this past weekend and spent one night at Plowboy Campground on the south end of Upper Priest Lake. Nice little campground right on the lake with a very small beach area. Some of the sites have fire-pits and picnic tables too. Our site did not, but it was very roomy and set back in the trees with still a view of the lake. You can also go farther up the trail to Navigation Campground at the north end of the lake. Good for young families!

This loop trail is also known as the "Buggy Trail" on the Farragut trail map, if you stay on the route you shouldn't be getting on different trails and covering more distance. I hike here with my dogs almost daily, the north side is very quite as most of the visitors are at the lake or south side. No matter which side you are headed to, Farragut is definitely worth the visit.
