Pretty hike and enough challenge but not too bad. Muddy if there’s been a lot of rain, bring extra shoes or shoes. I went in late August so could be buggy earlier in the season. Mirror Lake is gorgeous so well worth it.

I did South Mirror Lake. Super muddy, but lovely. I only saw 2 other hiking parties. Very quiet and peaceful.

Great MUDDY Hike ! First time hiking this area , tough muddy hike. No tennis shoes or flip flops on this one. Lots of uneven ground and MUD.Started at Lake of The Clouds North - South, Beautiful ravine at about half way point and some dry ground. No bugs at all which was good , probably would have turned back if it was really buggy even though we had nets and spray. Final destination was beautiful , will do complete trail net time. took about 5 hrs due to the thunderstorm night before.

Did all 12.3 miles. Mud, roots, elevation, and water describe it. Went clockwise from trailhead. Last mile on escarpment is great.

The trail is very rustic, more like a deer trail, could be hard to follow if not much use. signs are scarce, but there is not any intersecting trails to mess you up. Very cool part along the pine river where your about 100 ft above it. you can also get to Chipmunk Rapids camp site from this trail And there is the Assesors trail that is a nature walk around the lake
