Great short in and out hike with spectacular views. Aspens along trail already turning to fall colors made for terrific photos. Nice cool breeze in October kept the walk pleasant. Only one hill on way to lake, after that it's all downhill
Uphill for the start but really worth the effort. Once at the lake go to the right up hill a little more to a plateau for an even more beautiful view of the valley and waterfall. We got caught in a light hailstorm and rain but all still worth the hike.
Steep first mile but beautiful views !
Mostly uphill on the way up and a breeze coming down. Beautiful scenery
Perfect day! Mining area was amazing!
