Nice lake. Be careful we saw Cougar footprints and heard its roaring while hiking.

Stunning views. Some snow covered portions but did the hike in runners and had no problem.

Good hike but if you're following the trail map off the All Trails app it is not the trail for the mountain lookout - icy in some areas, very muddy in others

Nice walk along the lake and not too busy most of the time. Perfect for a leisurely outing in the mountains with a nice lunch along the beach or at the camp site.

Spent my entire day hiking up and around the mountain today, for the first time. The view is worth it forsure! I recommend!
