Awesome little hike. Took 2 little girls who did great pretty easy hike. Beautiful scenery. The mountains trees and untouched snow. We were the only ones out there from about 9-10:30. Went around the lake a few times :) for sure Gina have to go when there's no snow !

This would be a good trail for beginning hikers - it is short and there is very little elevation gain. The trail is mostly shaded and has some decent scenery along the way. I hiked this trail in the early evening and saw some deer on my way back from the lake.

Another easy after-work trail. Enjoyable in the cool afternoons of fall with beautiful colors on the aspen groves. The lake isn't much, and there isn't a view, but it's a great workout.

We made a large loop out of it to Twin Lakes and Silver Lake. It came out to 4.53 miles and took us less than two hours. Out of the three lakes, Twin Lakes was by far the nicest. The trail seemed easier than the one we did two days ago to Lake Mary and Lake Catherine. We didn't see any mountain bikers or any wildlife in the area.

Made the huge mistake of coming on Labor Day. This makes for a horrible day to hike but especially to bike! Probably not worth biking on any other day, rocky and just not very fun.

The hike was very fun, the lake was not extremely spectacular, but a great place for lunch. This summer hike made me want to go skiing!

Fun easy trail across Solitude ski resort to the lake. I saw almost as many deer as disc golfers. I have heard this trail gets a lot of use from mountain bikers but I didn't run into any. Supposedly you can make this a loop hike by continuing on to Twin Lakes reservoir but I did not attempt it. There was still lots of snow on the trail as of 8 July.
