Too tough for our 3 year old (he was sooooo close to the summit!) and no outstanding vistas of the lake, but a good quick exercise to justify that vacation beer in the afternoon.

Easy hike with awesome views of the lake. Get there early or late afternoon as parking is limited.

Beautiful scenery. The smell of pine trees in the morning and lots of shades. Surprisingly my four and six year old hiked this trail like a champ. Parking is always a challenge, very minimal space.

The rock is hard to get on top of but has an amazing view.

Great trail and great hike.

Great trail and great hike.

This was a great hike. It was the shortest hike I've taken but was still a good workout. The scenery was beautiful and I had a lot of fun climbing the rocks. Will be doing this again sometime soon.
