Easy hike along the lake. Pretty busy trail (we saw a ton of people) but nice lake views the entire time.

Gorgeous views. The trail is rocky but relatively flat. The toughest part is making sure you don't twist your ankle. We took the water taxi back and that was a treat. It shows a different perspective. Lovely and worth it.
