Beautiful trail! This is definitely a difficult one with about 2000 feet of elevation gain from the ski basin parking lot to the lake. We had a sunny day with packed snow on the trail, so yaktrax and trekking poles helped a lot. I could see how it would be difficult to follow the creek at other times of year, but the snow makes the trail a little clearer at times. Also my Strava tracked a total of 8 miles from the parking lot and back, so a bit longer than what the maps say.
