closer to 21km each way then 17km. A group of three of us did it in 7hours going in then 6hours on the way out over 2 days. Would not rate this as hard, if anything it's an easy hike. After the second bridge crossing there is a fairly steep hill and then after the stream crossing there is another slightly larger and steeper hill however neither are extremely challenging. There arent many campsites at the lake so if you're planning on going during a long weekend make sure you go out very early. fishing is decent but dont expect any trophy fish.
