A nice walk in the wood, but no view. Not well indicated where to start. Nice only on top.

Drop down into valley from ski area and then grind your way upward on a medium incline horse trail before bearing right for a steeper wide foot path. Levels out in last stretch in a hanging valley, lake and view of the amphitheatre. 670m gain over 3.5 klm of the 5.5 trail = 5.2 average incline rating.
