My sister and I hiked this trail and loved it. We are not experienced hikers yet and didn't quite understand the going uphill part of the trail. We took it on like champs though and when we saw the lake, all that hard work become worth it!
Great hike as always and not too many bugs. We got to see quite a few through hikers on the PCT and there were relatively few people on the trail. One of my favorite hikes! My phone died during the recording, but we completed 17 miles.
Nice incline on the way up that gets your heart rate going just a bit! I'd recommend packing a lunch and making a picnic out of it. Great view of the lake and lots of neat little spots lay out and enjoy the afternoon.
