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!
Great little day hike took the dogs along they made it just fine
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.
Great hike and perfect for kids!
We hiked this trail June 2016 and it was wonderful. We had 4 children (7, 10, 11, and 12). We all loved it! We took a picnic to enjoy by the lake. The trail was very manageable and the views were outstanding. It was our favorite hike from our trip.
This was a beautiful day hike, with the reward of breathtaking views at the end! I wasn't prepared for the intensity of the last 1/2 of the trail though. Once you hit the rocks/switchbacks it's tough going for a middle aged woman who isn't in tip-top shape. A day later my calves are screaming at me! If I do this one again, I'll probably only go as far as the bridge.....unless I get myself in much better shape!
