Trail is very easy. Walked it in the evening 6 weeks after abdominal surgury and once you get past the first uphill part it is flat. If you veer off to the left there are some bouldering opportunitys, we made it to the top of those and to the lake in just under 2 hours then hiked the trail back in the dark.
The road to the trail however seems as if it will never end and we constantly thought we were lost.

Hiked to the falls with family (hey yall), great hike, trail was good even with the snow! Great day!

Hiked to the falls today, trail was narrow but packed. But don't step off the trail, knee-waste deep in most places. Beautiful day and weather, we even witnessed a few small avalanches.

So beautiful! Challenging, but worth it. Long winding road to drive up to trailhead. Insane view!

Steady uphill that takes you down to the bottom of the peak makes for a fun challenge but once you reach the summit, there are so many lakes in sight and such beauty. Was an all day hike, a day well spent!

Beautiful scenery throughout the seasons.

It was a very cold day for a hike (9 degrees), but the trail was beautiful hiking in the snow. The snow depth is minimal, with a couple of stretches of ice that warrants using cleats to be safe. I would also suggest taking hiking poles to provide additional balance going down hills. I made it to where the trail ascends to the lakes before turning around. The frozen waterfalls along the creek were amazing!

Only hiked the first four miles. Nice creek with plenty of spots to chill. Nice views of the surrounding canyon. Ended up stopping where I could see a peak at the very end of the valley. Looking forward actually making it to the lake.

Easy day hike with minimal elevation gain. First two miles or so switches between a foot trail and a vehicle road. After that it just follows the vehicle road, though it's only open for foot travel. Last mile and a half it really opens up with nice views of the canyon. The reservoir itself was pretty low with a dusting of light snow and a nice little stream running (11-19-16). Overall very accessible for most people with some nice views.

Fantastic short 35 minute hike to a small lake. Hiked Nov. 11 and had to self (expected for late in the season). Will return with a tent next summer as there are fantastic views from lake and would like to wander up the attainable peaks right there.

Lots of snow! Great hike, we cut down to the lake and added some extra time on. Was well worth it!
