This trail is not 5.7 m it’s 7.7m. Totally beautiful!!!

We did this loop as a day hike (very doable if you get going early, move at a good pace etc). It took us a little over 8 hours.....a quick lunch stop, a few photo stops and a stop to purify water. For the most part, the All Trails map was great and got us from start to finish. However, the trail gets sketchy in spots and the topo map would have been really helpful so I could have seen where we should be in relation to lakes, creeks etc (and saved us some time). Be prepared for the climb as you leave lake solitude and hike down into misty moon. Beautiful scenery!!

Gorgeous trail! Perfect for a solid day hike.

According to my watch, this trail, from the parking lot at West Tensleep Lake to the edge of Lake Helen was 6.89 miles, not 8.7 as All Trails says it is. Most people we passed on the trail expected it to be around 5 miles. Not sure why there’s such a discrepancy. The trail is well used and maintained, and the scenery is beautiful! Mosquitos were in full force at the lake, and they mean business. They found any spot that may not have been sprayed and they bite through clothes. Well worth the effort. I will most certainly do this trail again.

Don't let the skeeters deter you from enjoying this lake and views! If so, maybe do August thru October.
