Jean Lunning Trail, Usfs Trail 907.1A Professional Reviews and Guides

"This great day hike makes a loop around Long Lake from the Long Lake Trailhead. Fishing, wildflowers, views, and easy hiking are the main attractions of this hike. Bring the family and a picnic lunch and enjoy one of the finest easy hikes in the wilderness area. Trail conditions: This popular trail is extremely smooth and well traveled.

From the Long Lake Trailhead, travel 0.2 mile to the Jean Luning Trail. The trail stays close to the southern shore of Long Lake and crosses through several marshy areas on wooden footbridges to the western end of the lake. Wildflowers are
abundant near the shoreline and are quite striking during the summer months. The view west to Navajo, Apache, and Shoshoni Peaks are quite impressive and dominate the western skyline.
The trail is easy to follow and has minimal elevation gain up to the junction with the Pawnee Pass Trail at the western end of the lake, where the fishing is quite good. The lake is stocked with cutthroat, brook, and rainbow trout."

This trail is a nice trail for people who are not looking for a rigorous hiking experience. The trail is mostly level, with very nice scenery throughout the length of it. It is a loop, tying back into the end of the Lake Isabelle trail, so there is no going back over ground already traveled. One important note, this area is notorious for mosquitoes, especially in early summer. Make sure that you have a good insect repellent, or a good blood donor available. I camped in this area when I was younger, and in a single night received over 300 bites.
