This was a fun trail and the views are gorgeous. We went on a Wednesday morning at 8:30am and saw 7 or 8 other groups/couples on the way down so I imagine it’s busy on the weekends.
I recommend a hiking stick as the footing was slippery in places.
I also think we parked and entered at a different start point because our total round trip was 4.5 miles.

It was a nice trail and the lily pad lake was neat. But the foliage wasn't crazy green, in fact, a lot of the area looks like it was burned in a fire 10 years or so ago. But luckily mostly at the beginning of the trail.

Worth going and not intense, but not the most beautiful for the drive out.

Not a bad trail. Definitely steeper and rockier than some reviews suggest. It was nice and wooded, keeping the trail cool even at the end of August. The lake was smaller and less impressive than I expected. Still a nice hike that I would do again.
