July 17. Excellent hike. Really one of my favorite of all time. Appreciate the writer who explained the upper and lower trails. When we got to the split, we went to the right which takes you on the trail higher up the hill. Much of the trail is made of flat rocks which I’m not used to hiking on but got used to it. Nice flat ridge for quite a while. The valley views were amazing. The cloudy weather made every view different. Crossed two waterfalls. Reached the cabin and lake. Very pretty. Hiked down on the lower trail. A little steep at the beginning but then is evens out. Waterfalls and great valley and mountain views. Exceptional hike.
