Fast elevation gain with a beautiful reward. Lake is worth the effort. Almost no one else on the trail.

Strenuous hike! All uphill. Great waterfall halfwall but the last bit is very steep. Beautiful lake at the end that is peaceful and quiet. Worth the challenge.

Great little hike with elevation gain packed in. The trail still has a tiny bit of snow coverage at the top when we hiked it.

Still snow floating in Fern Lake - really stunning scenery. The hike was steep - there was still some snow on the trail - a walking stick helped a lot.

Beautiful hike to a gorgeous waterfall and onto Fern Lake. We took our 5 and 7 year olds on this hike. It was tough but worth it!

Awesome short workout! Great views near the top...worth the climb. We did not pass anybody on the way up and only 2 people on the way out : )
