Wonderful gentle stroll with plenty of side paths to take for bouldering. Easy path to take for people who aren't certain they want to venture out too much. Nice start to the day for people who have bigger plans.

Walked here in 6/29/18. Disappointed to find that the lake had evaporated to grasses and streams. This is a seasonal lake, so you have to get there early spring to see it’s full reflective beauty.

Went in late Aug, but there wasn’t much water left in the lake. Can’t see the reflection of mountain in a sunny day. Pity. The trail was in great condition with quite a few ppl. Still a enjoyable easy hike.

Great hike, but might be a little misleading as there are a few ways to approach it. One is super easy along the road, which I believe would be out to the lake and back. Another is along with the signs - on a dirt hike which is actually quite uphill and rocky at moments.

To go to the lake and back and make it a loop, you need to cross the river! There is no paved way to cross it. Or you make a big loop which according to Yosemite website is approx. 5 miles total. We did the dirt hike to the lake, went back a few hundred feet to a narrow and shallow river part, crossed the river and walked back along with the road.

Fun hike, but we were scratching our heads along the way :))

Easy Trail on paved path and road with minimal traffic (early Spring). Slight incline up to lake, then dirt path around lake. Wonderful views, good for all ages and hiking levels.
