Its a great hike to enjoy with visitors, or we often stop by wild ernest sportsmen the way up the hill to rent snowshoes for our winter guest. We always take our 7 year old, its challenging enough to make you feel like your hiking.

Beautiful leg and a good hiking trail to it. The trail goes up and down through the woods, so I would not call it an easy Trail.

Lily pad lake has two trail heads hiked both. the eastern trail head is an easier hike. the western trailhead is easier to find. Can take the free shuttle to the eastern trailhead.

Nice easy to follow gentle trail through the woods to a scenic pond. Saw lots of wildlife on the way and worth a look.

Don’t let the big hill at the beginning deter you from this great hike. Great trail for kids with a beautiful set of lakes at the end! We had a picnic and enjoyed the sunshine when we got the lake and saw some awesome views....More

The trail start at Meadow Creek Trailhead and has easy rate but with high altitude. Trail is nice with several points to make photos. But lake was not very impressive. It is small with several bunches of lily pad that don't covered 1/20 of lake...More

Although it is a beautiful trail, it is not maintained for horses. All of the bridges we're rotted out so we had to try to go around them, added two extra hours and a lot of stress. Our horse literally fell through the first bridge...More
