Enjoyable trail located in Sierra County CA with views of Sunrise Dam and Verdi Peak. Trail is passable all year and features abundant birds and wildlife. No motor vehicles, no boats or fishing allowed. Various other foot and horse trails venture further into the mountain. Trail offers nice fall color opportunities.

The lake is very pretty. All kinds of foliage and a decently marked trail (which tends to diverge here and there). Good time and just the right length for a family hike with small children.

Hidden gem with very little traffic. Lots of single tracks branching off at west end of the lake.
