Great option for an easy day. Most of the hike occurs on the straightaway through the forest as the trail gently rolls up and occasionally down. The forest is thick and full of eye candy. Bring a good partner for great conversations cuz you should have your breath on this hike. You'll suddenly appear out of the forest and find yourself amongst a rock yard beside the lake. Relax, grab a bite, and take pics of the shear wall of rock brilliance on the other side of the lake.

Easy hike and worth the views at the end. The lake is a lovely spot to sit and take in the views. It wasn't overly busy either.

Very easy, quick trail that's accessible for people with a variety of fitness levels and ages. The lake at the end is very pretty and clear. Worth it if you're looking for some decent sights without a lot of effort. I hiked this early July 2016 and it was very muddy and wet at certain areas of the trail, so make sure you wear appropriate shoes/boots.

Lovely lake at the end of the forested trail. Minimal elevation changes and easy trail.

Great hike - ascending to the lake and descending for the most part on the way back. This even offered some boulder fields if you were up for it! The lake at the end was well worth it.

Gently ascending hike. Nice finish on a lovely mountain lake. Great for an easy trail run. About 40 mins running. 2 hours to hike it.
