Good for lovers of hiking. Some of it has been majorly logged and sometimes the left-behind timber gets in the way but the obstacles add adventure!

Great Hike! We did 7.3 miles, mostly on the road, but there were some trails through the woods. Great views of the valley below. Interesting area where sea shells and sand dollars cover a field when you start and end the hike. I’ve never seen anything like it. Whole sand dollars! Weird! We enjoyed the brisk morning.

Wonderful hike.

It has been a while since I did it,but I remember there were nice switch backs.The lake makes the hike worth it.

This is a well maintained trail in a naturally beautiful area. It is a bit of a drive to get back into the lake, but very well worth the drive.

This is a trail I will do again.

Beautiful hike.

Beautiful place to both hunt and just walk/run around. It's very easy-going to maneuver through for both experienced and inexperienced folk and a place I always enjoy visiting.

Nice trail to the beach, steep on the way up (and down, of course) but not nearly as bad on the way up as we’d anticipated. The sights from the beach are beautiful. Highly recommend!

This is my go to place when I want to get away from the busy life. It's not hard and at some points, you get nice views of the lake. I swam there plenty of times.

Nice trail around the lake with just a couple short, challenging inclines. Lake itself is warm and clear. Steep grade down to the water. Saw some other people who had brought floaties and coolers to make a day of it. Great idea.

Good trail that leads to the beach. Quiet and great for dogs..

Nice family trail, not long trail. Steps to beach though but if you take your time it’s fine. If nice weather I suggest bring sandals, specially for little ones, as there is creek they will want to walk in at the beach, just deep enough for their toes... my wife didn’t have them so she had to leap frog over water spots to walk the beach... even bring sack lunch if you have kids and it’s nice out, will wish you had so you can sit at the beach and let them play

April water show for sure. Easy walk, fun bridges and lots of beautiful old growth trees.

this a great trail, but today there was heavy snow trying to drive there, the last mile or two and too much snow on trail to hike in regular shoes..will go again later this spring..use caution driving in

It’s a nice walk, slippery in some spots but it only takes like 30 mins to get around the lake.
There’s a couple camping spots but it’s really not good for that.
We fished in it also and never caught anything. Iv lived in this area my whole life and I don’t know that anyone has ever caught fish in it.

The trail was short, but the drive was long. Spider lake is a spectacular view but unfortunately I picked up eery vibes from the glass-like stillness and once you see one part of it, the rest of the hike is a bore...

A very pleasant, short loop. The spur trail leads to the beach, which on a sunny day is really very beautiful. The road that leads to the State Park, East Yates Rd, is an unpaved, rough surface road with pebbles and rocks, but it is easily driveable for any type of car. Discover Pass is required to park at the trailhead.

The app clocked this hike as 1.5k. It says easy but those of you just starting out, it's steep terrain down to water and if you take the loop back to the parking area, it's a gradual incline with brief spots of difficulty.

Pretty short hike. Gets steep when you are going to the water but quick and easy hike.

Easy trail, but the road to get there is very pot-hole ridden. Pretty lake, thank goodness for this app's GPS, no trail head sign, but gps led me right to it. Wear pants, trail a bit overgrown.

it's was a very easy and fun hike

Very quiet and clean trails and beach access. My toddlers enjoyed the hike very much. Bring your own trash bag to dispose of waste. No bins in sight. Which is okay.

Lovely woods
