This was a spectacular hike with breathtaking wildflower displays and beautiful views. When you drop down into the meadow the sheer volume and variety of wildflowers defies belief. From the trail head, you hike through a nice glen of aspen through a small section of pine forest, then up a rather barren ridge. From there, the meadow is spread out before you. It's a nice hike through the meadow, then back into pine forests to the lake. Some wonderful craggy cliff walls can be seen as you walk through the meadow and they offer a splendid backdrop to the lake. Mid-July the biting flies were out in force, so bring lots of bug spray.

This was a beautiful hike, nothing too fancy. It was very windy the day I hiked so the temperatures were cool. Few dogs off leash, no real issues though.
