I did this trail on my new new mountain bike. We absolutely loved it, it was not an easy climb to the top but totally worth it. Again, it was my first bike ride so it may be easy for some but it was fairly demanding for me.

Mystic lake is a great easy day hike. The lake is nice and peaceful and I saw a ton of wildlife when I went. There is a cabin you can reserve through the forest service if you don't like sleeping in a tent, otherwise there are some great camping spots around the lake if you want to spend the night. One word of caution though, the lake does have small leaches, so bare that in mind if you decide to go skinny dipping.
