Gorgeous hike!! Terrain changes from rocky to dusty. Not a ton of traffic (such a plus) and the lakes are STUNNING! Crystal clear and surprisingly warm compared to other mountain lakes. Mild mosquitos and inclined most of the hike. Great swimming hole. This particular part of the trail is only the first two miles of the Nannie Creek Trail (Puck Lakes Trail and Nannie Creek Trail are the same trail), so reaching the lakes would be doable for beginners.

Perfect trail if you’re looking for an easy stroll-in-the-park style trail. Loops around Lake of the Woods and is great for pups and hikers of any level. Almost zero incline. Would carry bug-spray.

Gorgeous hike and beautiful views! There is no water on this hike, so make sure to bring enough to share with your pups!! The first half of the hike is also mostly inclined and in the sun, so come prepared with sunscreen and dress accordingly when hiking during spring/summer. The second half of the trial is mostly downhill and super fun due to run due to the trail being built for bikes. So, be prepared to share the trail with mountain bikers and be courteous enough to step aside to let them pass. Didn’t have a mosquito problem in spring. Four stars due to the lack of shade and water.

This half of the trail is rough. More of an incline than the first half on Varney Creek and there are more fallen trees to hurdle over. There are several lakes on this loop. Wouldn’t recommend hiking it until mid-summer. At the top of the loop there was still quite a bit of snow pack (2-3 feet) when I went in May. Come mosquito prepared!

This trial is gorgeous! It is an incline most of the way up with slight alleviations here and there. You’ll pass Lake Como on the left after the trail split to Mtn Lakes Loop before you reach Lake Harriet. Both are stunning and are stocked with rainbow and brook trout! Fishing is great! We packed in and stayed a few days. I wouldn’t recommend setting up at Lake Harriet though due to the winds. It’s always windy due to the location. Lake Como would be a great one to set up at. Four stars only due to the mosquitos - come prepared!!

Backpacked with 3 other friends to camp on the north side of Lake Harriette. Pretty difficult with 30+ lbs strapped to you but worth it. I advise taking the left side to get to the Lakes quicker when you hit the fork on top of the mountain.

Very easy and relaxing trail, definitely a way to fix a bad day. Make sure to check out the falls before you leave.

A nice little walk for the first half of the hike, not secluded enough for my taste.

Trail is overgrown but still nice. Very easy to find trail head.

Great hike that follows creek the whole time. Lake is post card perfect. Watch out for mosquitos!

Went 6/2/18 , got swarmed with mosquitos 100ft. onto the trail and they didn't let off for a while. Other than that, it was a beautiful hike.

Beautiful, easy and fun trail, especially for kids!
Lots of wildlife to be seen, some very fun places to hop off the trail and explore down by the water.
It gets super hot when it’s sunny. From now ‘til fall, I suggest going early in the morning, late evening, or only on overcast days.
“walk” more than a hike.

"Easy" is very accurate for this trail as it's more of a leisurely walk than a hike. It was convenient place to stop on our trek from San Francisco to Crater Lake. It's very conveniently located and an easy place to stop to stretch your legs without having to commit to a real hike.

Great Trail for hiking with dog, but keep alert for mountain bikers.

The birds! The trail is well maintained, the dam is a plus. Bird watching shacks are very convenient close to the river. Flat enough to jog and run (kids). Not much shade, lots of sun.

this is a great hiking and mountain biking trail. There are some really good views of Klamath Lake and even Mount Shasta on a clear day.

Excellent trail so close to cabins

Easy trail with a large variety of birds. Beautiful scenery along the river.

Beautiful, easy going trail. Gets really cold come winter because of it being so close to the water. There are several hidden secrets just off the trail if you're paying attention! One of my personal favorites.

Nice trail with just the right amount of rocks. Would be awesome on a mountain bike. Some downhill jumps on the hooligan decent. The views are pretty, and the distance makes for a nice few hour loop on foot.

Great trail, beautifully constructed by Dirt mechanics and maintained by Klamath trails alliance. Fun flow trail for mtb and great views!

great walk

This was a beautiful walk and the lake was well worth it. There are some small ponds on the way which are beautiful in their own way as well.

Very pleasant hike through a pine forest. Very clean, easy-to-follow trail, even after an inch or two of fresh snow. Flat from trailhead to Varney creek crossing (~1.2 m), then a very gradual, evenly-graded incline towards the loop - never steep. Walked to the loop and back in 3.5 h, including breaks. Our GPS agreed with the posted mileage of 4.5 m to the loop (not 4.26). Past outdated reviews note trees on trail; the trail is now completely clean.

Had the trail to myself hiking to Lake Harriette yesterday. Beautiful scenery, and I’d call it a mildly moderate trail. I was able to hike the 5.8 miles to the lake in just over an hour and a half. Such a peaceful place, and I got to have a one and one with a bald eagle! I’ll definitely be returning.

i like this hike and have done it a handful of times. cold weather came early this year. we camped at Como but woke up to spitting snow and fog. pretty fall foilage, quiet, clean trail.
