Easy trail. Lots of water crossings so be prepared.

It's becoming more crowded that a couple years ago sadly. Still a great spot with a gorgeous payoff at the top. Be aware no campfires near the lake.

love the hike, moderate, great for an overnight or day hike, for overnight, hike around the lake to the far end there is a spectacular camp site on the meadow, fishing a little though at the lake the creek proof to be way more effective for a fresh dinner.

Has to be one of the best hike around the area. Rewarding end. the view is spectacular! Didn't know the trail was 10 miles round trip since the sign doesn't say nor does the map. Worth the trip and best part was there was no one in sight but me and 2 friends :)

Loved this hike! Amazing views and a lovely place to swim at the end. Moderately challenging at times, but well worth it!! Well marked trail, well kept and not overly crowded. Spent the night at the campground nearby. Lovely trip!

Awesome hike, long long long drive to get there. Parking and road access is unclear after Lake Edison drains a bit. This trail is open to horses and pack animals, and a bear and 2 cubs were sighted on the trail (totally normal), so be aware!

This is the second trail I've taken since I started backpacking in '86. Beautiful country. Have been here a dozen times since and it's still beautiful. Go during the week if you want privacy, as its very frequently used by day hikers on the weekends.

Awesome hike. What a beautiful reward awaits you after the last steep haul. Bouldering to the north side of the lake to camp at the "beach" is VERY worth it. Plenty of great fishing too!
