Not a super great payout for the elevation gain plus there were mosquitos when we went to sit down by the lake. I'd go with another hike

this trail starts near Lake mcdonald and follows a horse trail (with lots of horse droppings). on the way up you can catch nice views (look behind you!). it leads over a few streams and bridges. there are multiple turn offs for other hikes. the fish lake is literally a pond. there isn't a great area to sit down. not that you would want to sit next to the pond with frogs, flies, and Lilly pads.
the hike through the forest was better than the destination
