A few nice viewpoints, but not really spectacular.

Loved this trail! I would usually go with my family when I was younger I went back last weekend and it was still like I remembered it ! Not a lot of bugs here. We did see a snake swimming in the water pretty cool. The marks are pretty clear you won’t get lost. Due to COVID a lot of people are out hiking so we did see a lot of people just wear your mask you will be okay

Great moderate trail. Start by going counter clockwise which is the steeper & rockier side. Once half way through the views of the lake are terrific.

Hiked today Monday from 3-6pm- followed the turquoise trail, til the fork, took a right at the white with red dot trail, and followed to the lake. Beautiful trail, very nice lake, with beautiful views. Not overly crowded, most people we encountered seemed polite about social distancing, and were wearing masks. When we left at 6pm, it seemed like men were gathering to drink on an off trail to the right of the trail head, might be a covid occurrence, just fyi.

Gorgeous trail down by the water. Easy walk with a few uphills, but nothing too hard. Had a great relaxing day with my girlfriends. A little muddy for only 1% of the hike, but it hasn’t rained in a while. Loved it.

Very well marked trail and easy to follow, did the late afternoon and was a bit windy by the lake area. Great explore of the old mining structures at the entrance to the trail. Would recommend for all as it is an easy paced trail overall.

Loop around the lake was really nice. Saw some snakes and frogs. The other loop is mostly for extra exercise, not much to see.

Average trail

This trail is about 8.3 miles according to our trackers.. it took us 3 hours at a steady pace. We saw a bear and two snakes so be cautious! Beautiful views but longer than we anticipated. Great trail though!

Good trail, moderate sounds right. glass at dater mountain lookout so be careful with dog. Found a snake on the trail. There was a bear in the parking lot so be weary.

Nice, easy hike through the woods.

nice trail with some different scenery along the way, love the pine trees, some ups and downs but not terribly difficult. Lots of different paths to take if you want to veer off the red blaze.

Go counterclockwise up for a more steady descent in fire tower road.

i wouldn’t consider this trail moderate- it’s definitely on the easier side. 3.5 stars

The lakes are nice. Rest of the hike is pretty boring.
