Fairly easy hike with some moderately steep areas mostly in the beginning. Weather during hike was overcast during hike to the lake then steady rain the last third on our return. We had some views of the mountains occasionally but much of it was obscured by clouds. The heather meadows were lovely with the different fall colours. We saw a black bear from a distance in the meadow then another black bear about 15 feet away from the trail eating berries on our way back to the trailhead.
The approximately 10 km of gravel road to trailhead not too bad except for last 1-2 Km which was quite rough and bumpy.
