The trail was hard to follow even with help from a ranger. The lake at the bottom was nothing special, the switchbacks going back up have a pretty decent incline. You’ll definitely get a workout but the view of the lake didn’t make it worthwhile in our opinion

trail wasn't in great shape, and was hard to follow at times, fallen trees and not clearly marked. It takes you down to the lake where the YMCA is located, not an outstanding view. will try for better lake view trail next time.

Nice trail away from crowds with views of Sequoia Lake and the "Dead Giant" in the meadow.
