Great hike from beginning to end. There is the option to continue on toward cottonwood pass.

Went on July 2, the weather was warm and sunny until an afternoon storm rolled in and rain and hail came dumping down for about 30 min.

The trail is in great condition. Make sure you start at the right parking lot, if you don’t, it adds an extra mile or so to the hike. Most of the trail is a gradual, sandy, incline. At about 3 miles in, it ascends to the pass where you connect to the PCT. At that point, you’re almost there. Just continue on to the slight right turn to the lake which is a short walk from the PCT.
