The solitude is splendid, the trail is terrible, and the lake is lovely despite its approach being a cement dam. The trail is a very steep OHV route with treacherously loose rocks on about 90% of the trail. There are two beautiful stream crossings, but since the route is essentially a 4WD road, treacherous, and banked for OHVs not people, it never quite feels like a hike in the woods.
