The path around the lake is a little difficult to find and navigate, pretty unmaintained and rocky. But the hike is really beautiful and worth the uphill climb! Easily marked trails leading up to the lake! Stop at the Gray Eagle lodge on after your hike and have a beer or a glass of wine!

I would not rate this a moderate trail. Majority of trail is uphill on loose rocks and there are several series of bolder steps with a twelve to eighteen inch vertical step. Thank heavens the water was so refreshing once we made it to Smith lake for a quick dip.
