Hiked with my dog today, it's an amazing trail with a great amount of shade and often enough access to the lake that the pup can drink. Will definitely hike it again soon!

Great Trail! We do the pine crest loop trail every summer and it's an excellent hike. The dam side of the hike is a little more moderate with steeper inclines and more elevation change.

Not much elevation gain but very uneven terrain. Based on 'easy' I took my 81year young mother. It took 4hrs....

Busy trail, heavy dog traffic. Hit it at sunrise and avoid the rush.
