The 1st half of this trail is awesomely beautiful and goes to a stream that runs into the lake in a nice little cove. The next section that goes away from the water and off into the woods is great. The last 1/2 mile+ is pathetic and is on a road uphill back to the TH. The trail is in excellent shape with a few small trees down and a rock that are all easily passed.

The best option for this trail would be an out and back to where the trail turns up and away from the lake shore. If I had done it as mentioned I would have rated it a 5 instead of a weak 4... I'm surprised this trail was approved because of the road portion of the hike.

At the TH make sure to take the fork to the the right with the signage.
