A short and sweet hike up to Weaver Lake. The Lake has a lot of "sites" with already made fire rings for safe and easy fire use (with a permit, of course!) Right now there is still some snow so the trail can be difficult to stay on for a novice hiker. There are tree blazes so watch out for those of the trail is covered. The only reason this didn't get 5 stars is because the hike is nothing too spectacular, but the Lake is amazing.

I'm not going to lie, this trail can be tough on the way up because of the starting elevation and elevation gain, but it's not something that should scare you away. There are two separate cut-offs that will significantly shorten the length of the hike and eliminate most of the climb. This was my first backpacking trip and it was absolutely worth it! Caught a lot of trout on Mepps and Rooster Tail style lures as well as on a small crank bait.

Possibly the clearest lake I've seen in my entire life, well worth the trip!

This was my wife and I first time hiking anywhere, it took us 2 hours, (including breaks), to get to the lake all uphill, we were tired but it was definitely worth it. It was very clean and calm. We didn't get to stay long, just had lunch and stayed a bit but will definitely be going back, hopefully we'll get to camp out next time.

Wonderful trail. There was a lot of horse poop but that didn't bother me. The lake was warm, I wish I had time to swim. My gps said it was 7.3 miles. It was a little longer than I would have liked. I would say the trail was moderate. The way there is quite a climb but the lake was beautiful. I did see several other people as well. It is also fine to take dogs I don't know why the app says no dogs. I asked 4 park rangers and they said dogs are allowed because it's forest land.
