beautiful trail that has open space and fields within the valley surrounded by Aspen's. We went on Oct 1st 2017 and what a view. Very easy trail with many spots of the river and surrounding steppes.

Really nice trail. Lots of variation between forest and fields. I went all the way up to Gore Lake. Tough incline on the last part but worth it. Only criticism is the trail was really rocky so I was constantly looking down at my feet to make sure I didn't trip instead of looking at the gorgeous view.

Great half day hike. it took me exactly 5 hrs from TH to lake and back at a relatively fast pace. beautiful along the creek with a lot of diversity (woods, open fields, boulders...), Hike to the lake from the graveyard is steep but worthwhile. it took me 1 hr to reach the lake from the split.
