The start is very casual and actually quite flat with a very gradual ascend into a beautiful valley. Mostly hiking through a forest, by a creek and through a campground at the 5k mark. At the 8 -10 k mark you start to get above the tree line and the views are incredible. Once you climb over the saddle at the top of the pass this is a definite wow moment. We didn’t descend completely into fish lake as there was no reason to, but had lunch above the ridge overlooking fish lake. I would rate this as moderate only due to the length. One gorgeous hike.
