Great short hike with good views and areas on exploring. $5 for parking.
It's a nice short hike. Pretty snowy, but the trail was firmly packed down, so I only needed my yak traks. It was very windy at the lake - I almost got blown over a couple of times!
If you keep going past the lake and the Glacier, you will hit another trail that leads to the view of Lock Lomond, and you will also see 3 beautiful lakes past that lake.
Short, rocky hike to a beautiful view. I'll be back!
Id agree with the other poster and list this one as moderate/hard. It is VERY rocky the whole way up and is a tough climb. It is definitely worth the view though, and my dog loved it. I will be doing this one again.
Steep trail but the tranquility of the lake at the end of the trail is definitely worth it. Busy spot though.
