I love this trail! It’s bordered to private property so you need to stick to the trail, and some trails were closed for restoration. The path is well maintained and has decent shade coverage. All In all the hike is well worth the views at the top.

Remarkable if you can get a hot spring to yourself.

Really enjoyed this hike. Hoping to go back in the next couple weeks to go all the way to the top of baldy!

great!

Great trail for a walk with the doggos. we got a little confused by the trail markings at time, but we always found our way!

Very nice and generally easy to follow main trail, and the lake views were particularly amazing at sunset. This area deserves its popularity, though fair warning that masks and distancing aren’t really a thing here! I recommend bringing at least a bandana for protection and courtesy.

6/25/20 Really enjoyed this hike! Alpine Lake is gorgeous. Trail is well marked and clear. Did come across some snow towards the north end, nothing crazy. You can see the whole lake on the way to Sawtooth Lake and the view is spectacular.

6/25/20 Fantastic hike! Trail is pretty well marked, little scattered when there was snow towards the end. Wore my trail runners and did just fine. Last half mile or so takes the longest. Great views of the Sawtooths and Alpine Lake along the way.

explored area nearby. lots of different trails

Really enjoyed this hike & especially the view at the lake. Only a few patches of snow today & some muddy areas. Mosquitoes as we approached the lake. Saw some other hikers like us going out & back, backpackers, mountain bicyclists, and someone on a motorcycle so it was a bit busy. Would’ve liked to have gone further if we had the time.

Great trail, very easy hike. Like others have said, it was more of a long walk. It had a lot of great inlets to the beach, so pack your swimsuit and a picnic lunch! Gorgeous views of the lake and beach. Great for families and young kids. Lots of shade along the path. Perfect if you want an easy, peaceful walk with family

nice hike

Hiked this last week (June28th.) Most of the trail was very visible till around 3.3 miles, hit a small patch of snow. Took us 3 hours to get to the top, hailed near the top. 2 hours to get down. Tried to keep our distance from the goats. Very pesky. The view is worth it!

great little hike. fun for a morning warmup.

Hiked 7/2/20 Decent trail that is mostly flat until you get near the falls. The view of the falls are not that impressive, but it has some pretty views of the mountains. Avoid the lakefront trail (trail 640). Just past the bridge, a few minutes from the parking lot, the trail sank when the earth liquified during the earthquake earlier in the year and is now a foot or so below the level of the lake. We had to take off our shoes and walk 200 or so feet in the water to get through. Maybe later in the year the lake level will drop, but in early July it was flooded.

Nice trail trail, did not see many folks out there until we reached the campground and beach. Very nice views of Pend Oreile and the Monarchs. A bit muddy from the recent rain.

I absolutely love this hike. The views are spectacular and you go from forest to open meadow and back into forest and meadow again. There’s a variety of terrain and it is mostly an easy hike until you reach where the trail ends. Hard to navigate from here and a group who has done it several times says the hike up to the lake is tough. It’s a great scenic trail though until it ends. A bit of mud but not too bad. This is one to take some less experienced hikers on. We did around 7 miles. Beautiful.

great loop. there is only one very bad spot if you are on an atv, it is on a steep hill, with some rocks about half way up. you will know it when you see it. there is a couple small trees to the right. if you are on a short wheel base atv or trail sxs, go around the tree to the right. if you have 60" you should be fine taking the road. the rocks at this one spot has been undercut by rain and it is just too tall for an atv or 50" sxs. the rest of the loop is awesome.

Great trail to get up to Lucky Peak faster than any other!

Visited in April this year, the creek is easier to cross in October. Go figure. If you head upstream of the main crossing there is an extensive log bridge system I slid across on my behind though I did still have to cross a brief portion of briskly moving ice cold stream in the middle. I saw one hiker cross the whole stream by wading straight through and keeping her balance with hiking poles. That might be the easier way to go next time. Despite the super cold stream, hiking this trail in April was HOT. Trail was exposed and sunny, it might have been a good time to check out some of the lakes further back on the trail if I had time. Saw a couple ticks but no mosquitos. Plenty of hot pools and tent sites.

Wonderful hike- we have fallen in love with Idaho! would rate it on the easier side of “moderate”. Lots of easy flat and inclines. Shaded for much of the trail. Pass over shallow creeks. Alpine Lake is an epic view: mountains and snow and clear water. We spent an hour enjoying the view and fishing (no bites) before heading back. This was our easy day before a more difficult hike tomorrow. Some mosquitoes at the beginning of the trail. Overall trail was dry. Got there at 10 and got one of the last parking spots in the lot. (Difficult for us is the High Line in Glacier).

Fantastic loop connecting with Ricochet and Whistling Pig. Consistent vertical with easy-moderate terrain. Not a lot of shade but fairly open to wind. Great loop that could be extended to 5 miles or more with others. I ran this, I did not hike.
