Insanely beautiful views at the top. You can sea the ocean on one side and the lake on the other.

I also really liked how the view along the hike to get to the lake was ever changing. Open dirt roads through rolling hills, then through the forest, then along the aqueduct system, then up the side of the crater... this is a very mentally stimulating hike.

With that being said, it is a very challenging hike. The uphill climb is steep. It gets pretty muddy in spots. Make sure to bring plenty of water and don't forget to stretch before you go or you'll be very sore the next day! Worth it for the views though.

beautiful and interesting trail. loved the system of aqueducts as you near the lake. just be aware that the posted trail does not actually show the loop; instead only show the westward leg (presumably that is the "official"trail) -- was a bit confusing. The first part of the hike is steep but it gets much easier and prettier as you ascend.
