This is one of my favorite central Kenai Peninsula rides. I'm a solid intermediate rider and this trail is just challenging enough. It's a very satisfying 6 miles gradually up to the lake and then a fun and at times flowy ride back down to the trailhead. On other trips I've biked this with a competent 11 year old mountain...

My wife and I liked to hike the trail years ago. We camped at the lake three times and have just done the trail to the bridge several times. The bridge is a little more than half way to the lake. Nice spot fore lunch. It is a beautiful place.
