I enjoyed this trail in the fall for the colors. The best view is really from the road/edge of the lake before you drive to the trailhead. From here the mountain reflects off of the water. There is parking right at the trailhead and also parking earlier than that where the trail intersects the road.

We went on a Sunday late morning, and saw no one on the trail - just a couple fisherman on the lake. There are several different routes you can take for a shorter or longer hike.

Great trail, the only obstacle was horse poop all along the trail. But otherwise: beautiful, parts dramatic, parts sweet and bright. I would consider this trail easy, comparing to the Purgatory one.

Great hike, I would say more easy than moderate. Mosquitos were everywhere, only bothered you when stopped. Lots of horses & poop to go along with them. Nice waterfall & very covered forest.
Definitely worth it.

Very horse beaten trail but the waterfall and creek stop about 2/3 in (counter) makes it worth it.
