"The recently completed trail to Soapstone Lake is a pleasant and easy backpacking outing that makes an excellent choice for families with children. The trail to the lake is short but surprisingly diverse, including areas of dense forest, some relatively open second-growth woodlands, a small meadow, and a lovely creek, all leading to a pretty lake at trail’s end."
