Great views. Hiked up by veering to the right side at the entrance instead of going straight. Nice trail, was a bit icy/snowy on the way down. Climbed up some rocks to get close to the top, didn't get all the way up, we weren't sure before we started this if you could get all the way to the top or not but saw a couple of people make their way up. Enjoyable hike!

Watson Lake and Flume Trail

It's difficult to know exactly how many miles I hiked because there are several alternate trails you can take to complete the loop around Watson Lake (note, I came across the Flume trail but didn't take it). It appears you can begin from various parking areas around the lake. I started at one of the parking areas near a boat launching shore and headed south to start the hike, which was called Watson Loop Trail. At some point when I reached the south side of the lake and started north on the east side of the lake, a sign told me I was on the Peavine Trail. After about 2 miles I took the Over The Hill trail to get us to The North Shore Trail which brought us back to our car. The network of trails is well marked with white dots and several signs along the way, so it isn't difficult to navigate. The route I took was probably more like 5.7 miles or so. First half of the hike was an easy hike. The fun starts when you hike through the dells, the last 2.5 miles or so. Rare and beautiful scenery makes you feel like you're on another planet.

A very different kind of hike very cool though. You need to try it at least once. Not hard at all.

This is a great canyoneering trail. You will need ropes for about 60 ft. of repelling.

Very crowded and close to the road, I prefer a little more seclusion. The scenery is beautiful and the trail is well maintained.
