Great trail, but not well marked. Plenty of water. Beautiful.

I want to start out by saying that the description of the loop being 7.7 miles is false. The reason we chose to hike this trail was because we thought a nice 7.7 mile looped hike with a lake would be great for a nice day hike. As the description stated it is VERY lightly trafficked and we only saw two other back packers who showed us an actual map of the trail showing the whole loop was more like 14 miles. If not for them we would have continued on never the wiser. We only packed enough food and water for a few hours of hiking. We would have loved to make it to Stewart Lake which is about 8-9 miles in but decided to turn around about 4 miles in so we could get back to the trailhead and not run out of water. We will try this hike again but make it a two day camping trip. This is the second time I have found a trail off the All Trails app and have been mislead or misinformed with distance or trail numbers. With all this being said, the hike itself is breathtaking. Lots of greenery, shade and wildflowers. Not to mention the first 1-2 miles you're hiking along Winsor Creek surrounded by thick brush and tons of butterflies. It didn't even feel like I was in New Mexico. It felt like I was hiking in the Pacific Northwest. Beautiful hike, but if you plan to complete full loop, be prepared for a long 14 mile hike.

This trail has great views, but it is just typical deep woods hiking. It has no special features and tends to drag on.
