This was a great little hike. It is a pretty quick incline in a short distance and still had some large melting snow patches to go through. There was also A LOT of blowdown to climb over or go around. Very nice hiking along the creek and then getting to the beautiful lake was great. There are a couple places to camp around the lake. I would recommend this as a start point and then when you hit Divide trail take a right and head towards Lookout Point.
