Classic hike in the Watertown area. Be sure to take a lunch for a picnic on a small beach at the lake.

It was a gorgeous day, with a slight breeze and cooler temperatures. No wildlife, but we had the lake to ourselves as we walked around it.

Overall a good hike. The trail is often crowded on the weekends between the trailhead and the lower falls. After the lower falls, the trail becomes significantly steeper and is only switchbacks until you get to the lake. There is a trail the goes around the lake and backcountry camping.

Beautiful hike up to an amazing waterfalls and then onto a gorgeous alpine lake. There are 3 waterfalls. This is definitely a one place to go.
