The trail to Long Lake #7122 is found at a large trailhead sign on the north side of the second (north) parking area by the campground, at Elkhart Park.
In an open area at first, the trail almost immediately rounds a bend and drops down into the pine forest. It continues descending, very steeply in places, through the pines for the first two miles. Still in the forest, the trail then levels off and comes to the west end of Long Lake after about another quarter mile, at the 2.3 mile mark. Long Lake is a gorgeous lake set in a steep sided forested valley, a great place to take a break and/or camp.
Continuing on from Long Lake, the trail is basically flat. Still in the woods, the trail runs along the Long Lake output creek - Fremont Creek, for the next mile, to the 3.3 mile mark. Here at the 3.3 mile mark, Fremont Creek empties into Pine Creek, and there is a trail junction with Crows Nest Lookout Trail
and a trail sign. Follow the arrow pointing to Fremont Lake to continue on this trail.
After the trail junction, the trail climbs a small rise and there is a short open stretch with views of Pine Creek below, and Fremont Lake in the distance. The trail then veers north and drops down to run next to Pine Creek. Gradually moving away from Pine Creek, the trail is again in the woods and now flat until it ends at Fremont Lake. There is an old campground that appears to be abandoned/not maintained anymore, at Fremont Lake.
Mixed pine forest. Moose live at Fremont Lake at the trail end point.
