Definitely a great hike moderate to difficult in spots. Walking sticks help. Beautiful. More traffic than I expected.

Amazing little hike! The view is in my top 5 of all time. Depending on the day you go- you can get the whole trail to yourself. Would recommend to anyone!!

This is a beautiful hike, especially if you like walking on jagged rock! The first part is very serene and reasonably easy, but watch out for the second half, especially if you're 70 and have 2 artificial knees. Yikes! I'm still recovering 2 days later :-).

Only 2.7 miles to get to the lake, 5.7 is to walk all the way around it. Quick hike, nice vertical and great views! You end up at about 7700 ft ASL with a great view Granite Peak!

It was absolutely beautiful and a great day hike. There is a section that is on unstable rocks so I would not recommend for anyone with slight disability or injury. Narrow paths and high traffic.

I've been to this lake early on in the season when the water is super low and when full and both views are amazing. My entire family loves this hike and it makes for a great day hike or an overnight stay. I've taken both my ten and six year old up without issues.

It was an awesome hike! My wife and I with our first born tried this before back in 1987 but never made it to the lake due to the weather changing up on top so we hike back down. Three kids and four grandsons later...finally made it.

The hike gets hard as one hits the switchbacks if not in shape. Take rest breaks as needed, and don't rush. The lake is very much worth it. I hiked farther in for camping and fishing and would definitely do it again.
