Unsung gem. Beautiful hike along the lake. Nice Aspen groves. Went from the campground to the tiny lake (its a marsh) at top of the switchbacks about 3 1/4 miles. Also known as the Knight Ridge Trail. Very pleasant easy hike up to switchbacks, which are challenging just in elevation gain. Would be a great easy hike to go up to switchbacks and turn around. Wonderful view down onto lake. Saw eagle.
