My friends and I did a day hike here last minute and were not disappointed. The trail head is before the campground signs, if you drive too far you will hit a gravel road with huge potholes. The hike is fairly steep with a lot of switchbacks. It is dog friendly but very rocky so just be cautious of their... More

First of all, I am not sure how anyone can lower the rating of a hike based on natural occurrences, but perhaps that is just me.... Great winter hike. There were a few patches of snow, no ice, and it was really not terribly strenuous. We were exhausted from days of skiing and were able to do this no problem.... More

Fun for the whole family as this hike is not extremely difficult. Kids may have a somewhat easy time finishing it, but its a nice spot to take your time and enjoy the scenery.

This is one of my favorite hikes. It's fairly short and somewhat easy (about 3 miles each way). The lake is beautiful, and there's plenty of places to sit and have picnic. You can take smaller children on this hike. This is a popular trail so be prepared to see other hikers and campers.

This was a really big test for our group who was fairly new to camping and hiking, we each had a 50 pound pack and managed to accomplish a three mile hike all up hill and into Lena Lake, we only made it to the lower lake because the upper lake, which is supposedly better, was much further in.

This is a great day hike with lots of switch backs, but really beautiful little lake at the top.

The lake is stunning and this hike provides a great view of it. If you can withstand the water temperature, it's fun to swim around in. It tends to get really busy in the summer though...
