Loved the hike. Trarrian is rough so wear proper foot wear. Trails are not clearly marked so very easy to get lost so I suggest flagging tape to mark your route. We never did find the lake because of trails not being marked and very over grown.

Steady climb, nothing to steep. Just didn't "wow" me.

Not too difficult but quite a steady climb to the lake. Very pretty in the fall. The lake was soo clear!

A great hike, a bit of a goat path in spots and sparsely marked. But the upside is it's a very scenic climb through the forest and challenging enough to raise a good sweat. Under 2 hrs from bottom to top, a bit less coming down.
You will need bug spray, We can recommend Deep Woods Off, neither my wife or I came back with any bites despite the ever present mosquitos.
The lake itself is gorgeous, and some people were swimming.
An enjoyable afternoon all! round.

Really liked this hike, and would have given it 5 stars if it wasn't for ridiculous amount of mosquitoes and if we didn't go off the path thinking we were on the 'right' trail.
Have this app handy for the 1st part of this hike if you go, so you don't venture off the trail like we did.

The trail is a great work out. Pretty steady climb the whole way to the lake. The lower portion of the trail was overgrown quite a bit making it a right walk and hiding some of the roots and stones in places. There were also A LOT of mosquitos and even though we were covered in Bug spray we still came home with a bunch of bites... all that aside, the lake itself is gorgeous. I went in for a swim and it was so refreshing after the 5km climb to reach it on a hot day! We ran most of the trail back as it's all down hill and avoided getting more bites! Totally do it... just be prepared.
