It’s so pleasant to trail run this short trail. It’s shaded the whole way and beautiful to walk under the trees. Would think of this more as a walk than a hike. No views except for seeing the water at the very end.

My girlfriends an I did a day trip over to the island an we hiked around mountain loop an twin lakes yesterday, trail is very well maintained through the whole hike an we only saw a couple of people! This was such a beautiful day

Sunny cold day. The trail was largely freeze dried due to the cold temperatures and wind chill. The twin lakes were very pretty and worth the extra loop at the end.

Very easy trail and beautiful. Saw about 10 people on Monday in March, more than I expected, but all friendly. FYI, there's an offshoot trail that goes to Rosario, but I didn't take it. I started at South camp and turned back when I got to the road because it seemed too dangerous to walk it with my dogs. Would be a fun hike for kids.

Pretty hike with a short incline. Lots of miss covered trees shimmering shades of green. Trail is easy to find and stay on.

Lovely, easy walk around the lake. A little muddy after all the January rain but I wore regular sneakers and managed fine.

Amazing views. Easy trail. Must have been a big storm recently because there are a lot of downs trees and branches. One of the bridges is flooded over but you can climb around it.

Beautiful loop around the lake! Only one spot that was uphill switchbacks, otherwise a very mild hike.

Nice walk through a wooded area. Crossed the road and walked on the beach for a bit. Good warm up or ending walk if you attach it to another hike.

Good trail. Minus one star because the last 2 miles are along a road. The one picture attached to this trail is definitely not from it...

This is totally worth the sweat! Mercifully short switch backs lead to a viewpoint. The view is gorgeous and a great rock ledge to take a water break. Rated easy, but it shouldn’t be- it’s quite steep.

Nice and semi long hike. Beautiful views of the lake. Perfect for families and spouses that love nature but not looking for a challenge!

Linked to trail from south campground, taking southern part of Cascade Lake trail to connect. After reaching Mt Constitution, looped back on northern part of Cascade Lake trail. ~14 mi logged via AllTrails, truly an awesome hike!

good moderate trail. pretty hefty grade the whole way, but not super long and the view on top is worth it. my seven year old took it in stride.

Well groomed and no steep hills make this hike a nice short dip into the forest. Careful of the nettles just off the sides of the trail.

Steep short section, nice trail.

We did just the trail around Mtn Lake, 3.9 mi. Super nice trail, easy to navigate and well groomed. We did it clockwise so a bit of a hill towards the end but very manageable.

This trail is very gorgeous and is very mild. We started in the afternoon since it’s not too long and there aren’t a lot of elevation gains. We did a larger loop and included the Cascade Falls as well. The Fall is for sure a beautiful spit you want to include in your trail. In general there are very nice views of the lake as you walk around it. We saw more than 15 deers which was very amazing.

Amazing and challenging hike, well worth the effort to see fabulous views. First section is the hardest, and once you hit the midpoint, it is not too challenging. The chumps who drove up to the top missed out, bigly. Would choose this hike again. Nice facilities at the top to get water and snacks.

Easy, flat out and back through the forest. Kid friendly. Turn right on Crescent Beach Road to walk into town for lunch. Or turn around and then drive on to Buck Bay Shellfish for the best seafood on the island.

Really nice, flat trail. I ran this loop a couple times in the morning while camping at the lake. Part of the trail is along the side of Olga Rd, which is pretty busy, but the rest of the trail is very scenic.

Beautiful hike. Not a lot of elevation changes and a fairly clean path around beautiful views in all directions. Lots of vegetation. Very good moderate hike with concessions at the trail head.
