Road Condition: FR 420 is graveled and barely suitable for passenger cars. The road badly needs to be graded. Closed during winter because of snowpack.

A decent trail for sure, we hiked it but I think it's more suited for mountain biking. It's clean and quite but the scenery is the same throughout the trail. The trial immediately starts ascending at a decent pace, and doesn't end until you reach the 2 mile marker. This trail is rated easy I would say it's somewhere between easy and moderate just due to the constant uphill. The lake is nothing to write home about more like a pond. I wouldn't hike it again but I think it would be good on a mountain bike.

Nice, easy trail, with a steady incline. Mostly pine trees, with some aspens. Enjoyed the peaceful scenery and the view of the peaks.
