Although it was covered in snow. It was worth the hike.
This trail was breathtaking. Just challenging enough to put your body to the test but nothing to strenuous. My 12 week old puppy was able to accomplish 3/4 of the loop before retiring to her bag. There are quite a few sheer rock cliffs you have to climb (the most challenging parts) so your pooch might need a lift during those. The views were astonishing and the lake was gorgeous. It was quiet without a lot of foot traffic which was great for someone like me who loves the peace and quiet of the woods. You'd pass someone every mile or so, so not bad. The trail is long and some of the overlooks are offshoots of the trail so you have to add that into your mileage. This has been one of my favorite hikes so far! Highly recommend!
this area to hike is on nosh and south Lake, there is a fee of $10 to enter the park for this hike
I hiked this with a friend the other day. At points challenging with rock scrambling. We left from the North Lake parking lot and headed towards Artist's Rock. North Point was gorgeous. As we were racing against the sunset we picked up the pace at a certain point and didn't side track to the Falls because a hiker on the trail mentioned that the falls were dry. We walked through the campsites and then along the lake to have a more scenic view than the road at the end. All in it was a little under 3 hours. You'll need more time if you're looking for a more leisurely pace.
Beautiful day. Lovely views. Such pleasant people we met along the way. Relaxing and fun
The views are absolutely spectacular. The hike itself is absolutely wonderful too-nice mix of uphill and flat. Just watch out it's very easy to get confused by the different trails.
Fun trail with great view at the top. Fun hike because of the variety of terrain and vegetation.
