0.5 miles from Mink Bay to Hugh Smith Lake, the trail is an easy hike with one steep hill traversed by a series of switchbacks located at the midpoint of the trail. At the lake, a hiker can observe Alaska Department of Fish & Game biologists working at a fish weir conducting a sockeye salmon population study. Trout and salmon fishing in this system is considered to be excellent. No skiff is provided on this lake.
