Disappointing. First, very difficult to find. Directions from All Trails were based on a road that appears to have been closed off a while ago. After much trouble and wrong turns, finally found the lake. The “trail” turned out to be a dirt road for vehicles that went around the lake and had campsites along the way. Pretty lake. Good shade. But not a true hiking trail in my book. But there were several restrooms along the way, so that’s a big plus.

Several sections of this loop are incredibly overgrown and difficult to see. We took several side-paths that were most definitely not a part of the intended trail. Still a decent loop, but quite tough to follow along properly. Beautiful atmosphere and nearly always within view of the lake.

Beautiful area, but the trail was poorly marked, we couldn't follow the trail without walking through people's campsites. We couldn't finish the trail without violating people's space.

Very nice hike and pretty water views. The total of loops is only around 3 miles but we hiked in from a road to make it over five. Some areas on the west side were hard to find the trail, but you can always stay in view of the lakes to navigate. Also some areas with lots of downed trees (apparently a tornado last year) that had to be navigated around. It all actually made an interesting hike with lots to see.

Very remote and absolutely gorgeous. Plenty of hiking options and a place that will definitely be a good fit for easy exploring. Lightly rolling hills on trails. This place just has great energy. There is pump water available at campsite.

We had a great time fishing around this lake. We made our own trail to hike moving around it. Very beautiful! we can't wait to do it again.

Nice large camp sites. Easy hike around 3 lakes. Dog friendly.

a short 2-3 mile hike around 3 small lakes. Depending on which way you start you have a nice little stream for great photo opps! Nice camping also with fire rings, water and put toilets. Highly recommend for a beginner!! :D
