The first half of the trail was scenic with glimpses of the lake through the trees. However I would recommend doing this part by mountain bike. The hiking got a bit tedious but would be enjoyable on a bike. After the 2nd wood bridge the elevation climb began. Take it at a steady pace and you'll be fine. The view from the lookout point was amazing, but a little windy.
The trail was very well marked and maintained. There was very little mud from the previous days rain. I saw 2 mosquitoes and the bugs weren't much of a bother. I only had to navigate over or around a few logs that fell on the trail.
