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.

It was an awesome hike, muddy at lot of places in April, suggest to bring hiking boots and dress warm still, use the tracking from this app coz it's very easy to get lost that way you can make sure you will find your back... the lake is a perfect place to take a break and have some food. Whole hike took us little over 3 hrs with couple of small breaks! Forest is just beautiful, make sure also bring bear spry coz it is high bear territory!
Enjoy !!!!
