Very enjoyable, although there was quite an abundance of poison oak. The hike to Gillette Lake is 2.5 miles from the parking lot. Trail conditions were normal. Views are limited, but there is a longer stretch you can do to see a waterfall. Lake is stocked with fish. A few campsites are near the lake, this would be a nice spot for an overnight.★ ★ ★ ★
Gillette Lake and beyond (3/14/19, 8:08:12AM)
We were looking for a low elevation hike since there is still snow and ice at the higher elevations. I wasn't expecting much but was pleasantly surprised. There are some nice views of Table Mountain and Sacagawea and Papoose Rocks. I wanted to hike to the marked vista point on the map, but it wasn't all that spectacular as the sun was in the wrong place and it overlooked Bonneville which is not the most scenic with the electrical wires and towers. The hike also crosses under some electrical towers and there are some trucks hauling stone at one point. But, all in all a nice hike and not difficult at all.
