Took the ditch trail to meet this trail up to the lake on 7/14. The wildflowers were beautiful and everywhere! The lake and views are amazing. It was super hot though and there are mosquitos so bring bug spray. My Garmin clocked just over 6 miles to the lake and more like 3,000 elevation gain. The first 3 miles or so are hilly so there is some decrease in elevation in the beginning, but the last 2 miles are nothing but up.
