This is a nice, but rather on spectacular hike. Perhaps it was the time of year, mid-March, and an overcast day that made it unexciting. Most of the trail is through the woods, which might be a nice feature on a very hot sunny day. The lake is very very low, so it looks more like a half dried up mud puddle. And the views are good , but not spectacular, like many hikes in Switzerland.
