The trail offers gorgeous views however it has several problems: it is mostly exposed to the sun, very little shade along the way. We have two black dogs and one of them almost got heat stroke. It doesn’t help that dogs are not allowed to in the lakes. Also, the trail is not well marked. We got lucky because we were recording the hike within this app. At the very end there is a hard left that leads to the final climb to the top and end of the hike. Without following the trail on the app we could have missed it. It was beautiful, but pack a lot more water than you think you’ll need, especially if you have dogs.
