“Follow an old road through a mixed lodgepole forests to a nice lake popular with waterfowl.”— Jake Bramante
The trail leaves the old road and commits itself to being a trail as it curves to the northwest, continually alternating between burned and unburned stands of trees with no views to speak of. Right before it reaches the lake, it dives into a cooler, older stand of trees, then pops out right at the lake's shore.
The lake is surrounded by meadows with some shorelines that area a little marshy. Waterfowl are in abundance from the namesake grebes to diving ducks and even some swans. The trail follows the shoreline, eventually connecting with the Howard Eaton Trail: Cascade Lake-Norris Campground where you can head west to go to Wolf and Ice lakes or east to Cascade Lake.
