So annoying to get to (must off-road) but the lake is absolutely worth it and stunning. Go in the summer to get amazing wild flowers. Our dogs loved it too.

Was a good first trail to do upon my arrival to the mountains from sea level! Rewarding views and fun!

Beautiful alpine lake at the top with lots of wildflowers. Fun hike with lots of different beautiful views. Relatively challenging towards the end with a lot of switchbacks. Dirt road to get there - don't need high clearance but you're on it for a good 5+ miles
