Nice trail left early morning. Trail got busy as we were finishing up.

Nice quick hike with quite lake

Nice easy hike that leads to other trails. Information boards that give a history of the lake. Benches placed along the edge to sit and ponder if desired.

I usually take Max's short cut to Lilly lake and then the trail to the Butte, then over to Lizard lake and I take loop back on the Lizard and Lilly trail. It's around 9 miles takes around 3.5 hours with a few stopes at the view points. They have added more signs and done some repairs to the trails.

Nice views of lakes with some awesome campsites around lakes. Good signage to different views. Raptor ridge is a good outlook. Rough first 1.5 miles up but pretty level after.

This hike was okay. The lake is pretty, but I enjoy hikes with more of a lookout. Going back down the trail, there is another trail to wander on that takes you to a lookout point, which made the hike worth it.

Nice clean trail with easy access and parking, quiet wooded area

We did this trail a while ago and enjoyed it.

Nice little quiet walk around the lake. It was especially beautiful in the fall!
