One of my favorites. The amount of time spent above tree line makes this a magical alpine experience.

I have done a lot of the trails up here at state forest state park in my Nissan Frontier. some of these trails are pretty challenging with steep rocky switchbacks. Watch out for ATVs, these trails are narrow! I will take pics next time I am up there.

very much worth the trip. very cool at night and encountered some light showers, but quickly left as it came. be up the mountain before 1 PM to select a night overnight spot.

Loved this hike. Quick hike up to the lake with gorgeous views.

It was an amazingly beautiful hike. There was plenty of places to sit and enjoy the view. You can hike around the lake and on the other side you can see a water fall. I honestly wish we had brought our swimming suits, the water looked so inviting. :D

Going up to Lake Agnes the road narrows for one car only,not enough room for another car to pass. Beautiful hike, strenuous at times mostly due to the elevation. My husband, two daughters 13 & 8 and I managed very well. It was worth the hike on our way down a doe was grazing a few feet from us.
