WalkingGreat!

Walk in is ATV trail so pretty underwhelming but the lake is simply stunning! The water is so beautiful, and the hike up the hill to get the best view is fun! Exploring in around the lake is cool with the rock cliffs. Would love to go back in the summer.

Lovely walk. Well marked. Good family hike. Rope uphill is frayed at the top of the second ascent.

Well trafficked and maintained trail. Easy to follow to the mine. The climb to the top has ropes provided to help you. Was a little hard coming back down with snowshoes on.

Very easy, short hike but the lake is spectacular. Be sure to follow the trail up to the cliff to get the full view!

Great!

Nice quick walk and climb for great photo op. Too busy to sit and enjoy the top. Very nice down at the lake.

HikingGreat!

Was lucky enough to be there by myself for a bit of time. I sat up top and enjoyed the view then walked down and chilled a bit by the water. The type of place you just sit and appreciate.

HikingGreat!

The trail was easy, however the look off portion is tricky. BUT totally worth it! I would definitely recommend. Be mindful as I was looking for a cache and noticed a lot of used feminine hygiene products. :( If you're a woman, please don't do this, pack it up and take it with you. It's just gross. Other then that, I will be back!

OHV/Off-road drivingGreat!No shade

Absolutely stunning. But I was quite a walk up. The trail is frequented by ATVs, so it can get a little dusty. But once we reached to the lake, it was overcrowded. Difficult to find shade. But beautiful nonetheless

beautiful spot, but definitely overcrowded, as ppl mostly go there to swim and it's a very easy walk to the swimming spot.

Short 20 min hike to the lake on a dirt road. Really pretty views, small trail on left side goes up 50 m to a look out, worth a peak. Lake was a nice swim... may want to bring some sort of floatation device as it’s deep right off the shore. Some kids were jumping off a cliff across the lake, there is a rope to climb up there. My recoding is messed as I forgot to shut it off. There is parking at the entrance. It was super busy when we left.

It was overcrowded when we went. Sun was a tad high, which made the walk up kind of difficult. hard to find shade even though the place was surrounded by trees. The lake was smaller than expected. But we got really nice pictures from the top.

Casual stroll to an over crowded once quiet location. If you're out for the same picture all of socual media shows, you'll get it. Not a unique experience whatsoever.
