  • We did visited this lake trail on our 2nd day in the afternoon. It was after 3 p.m. when we arrived and we did find a spot to park. There wasn't anyone there to look at our park passes so not sure.....  more

  • We arrived around 7 a.m., and had plenty of parking available. By the time we left at 8:30, the lot was full. There’s an easy and flat trail all around the lake. I recommend walking all the way...

  • Such a great stop. The actual parking lot isn't very big, but there's lots of parking across the street and on the shoulder. There's a few picnic tables right at the entrance that we love having lunch at. The loop around the lake is a great walk, nothing strenuous. I bring my three year old on that loop. Wildlife is everywhere! I saw moose and muskrat last time! Lots of trails to offshoot and explore from the main loop.
  • It is a beautiful lake with small hike around it and another one over the mountain by it
  • We always stop here when in the area. Nice walking trail. Beautiful lake but looks like it needs some annual maintenance, particularly around the outlet. Photos from different trips.
  • The views here are spectacular. This trail is flat and perfect for doing with toddlers. We saw a snake, chipmunks and a moose!
  • The most incredible little spot!! So peaceful and lovely to just walk around the lake! My friends actually swam this time, just a little dip in, during our walk and it was a magical experience. Beautiful views and would be perfect for older or less able people!
