Getting to the lake it worth the trip. Generally easy with little elevation change. THE FIRST QUARTER MILE IS ENTIRELY UPHILL and may provide challenging for the elderly or kids.

This is a good loop for the family. There are a few tricky parts (fording a couple of beaver ponds and a stream), but that just makes it more rewarding. The lake itself is very nice with a lean-to and a couple of good camp sites not far from the trail. Check out my blog for a more in depth review and pictures. www.sheehey.blogspot.com

If you like a nice wilderness trail that is relatively long you should try this one.
