Beautiful scenery, glad that I had my hiking pole along with me as there is a pretty good incline uphill in several places. Worth the extra effort to go further up to see the Elephant Rocks and the smaller lakes

Nice easy trail with gorgeous views. Very busy trail. Got a little noisy up top with loud people. I think it's a great trail no matter the season.

This trail should not be rated as easy!! It's a rather steep uphill for 2/3 of the hike. A moderate rating would be more realistic. Once you get near the lake it evens out. It's beautiful once you get up there though. Well worth all the uphill effort.

really enjoyed this hike. only 2 hrs 15 min there and back. when at chester lake, on the left side, take the path that goes up the mtn to the Big Rocks (5 mins). amazing spot for pictures with mtns in background. another 12 mins up the path leads to a smaller lake with lovely flowers abound.
