Short hike to a beautiful lake. Short hike in and out. Be sure not to be fooled by the first unimpressive body of water. Bloomington Lake is farther along and worth the walk. There are fish in the lake although they are small. Often there is a rope swing which will drop you into the freezing water.

Great hike with kids. The drive in the dirt up takes about 35 minutes, but worth it. The lake is beautiful and the rope swing looked awesome. The line was very long so we didn't get the time!

Amazing hike. The hike is short and easy and the scenery is stunning. Cliff jumping and rope swing at the lake. The dirt road is kind of an investment but totally worth it.

A small but steep hill right of the parking lot was the only moderate portion. The lake is beautiful and the rope swing was awesome.

It was a beautiful scene. The road up to the trail was in good condition. I made it up the 10 mile gravel road in a pt cruiser. The hike was short, with one or two steep sections, but it was fairly easy. Definitely a beautiful scene. The water was cold, but the hot sun made the dip in the glacier fed lake fairly comfortable. It was beautiful and would recommend it to anybody who is able.

Although this is a very short hike it's one of the most beautiful places we've seen. Definitely worth the drive out and the perfect place for a picnic.

I love this hike. Although short, the lake is a beautiful scene. Short enough hike that my young children had little difficulty. If you are daring bring your swim suit and go off the rope swing that is occasionally there. Be warned that the lake is extremely cold.
