Beautiful Trail, travels through diverse environs and ends at a beautiful lake setting. The trail is wide in most places and suitable for younger hikers, if they can handle the distance (4.5 mi). Truthfully, the best campsites are 15-30 min hike from the parking lot. We'll most likely do that next time and day-hike to the lake. It can and did get muddy after the rain as the horses dig up the trail pretty good. You should be prepared for possible muddy conditions. (now the bad part) My wife and I went on Memorial Day weekend. There was moderate traffic during the day and we arrived to the lake in the late afternoon. By that time the lake was hopping and packed like a Lake Havasu Spring Break. What I didn't know is that the boaters come over in the morning and take all the established (read: good) campsites and then go out boating all day. By the time hikers get there all that is left is primitive or non-established sites. Campsite rules pretty much go out the window and everyone was putting up a tent wherever there was an open spot.
