If you're looking for something pretty easy, lowkey, and peaceful, this is a decent trail. There are some steep uphill areas but nothing too difficult. You won't find a spectacular view at the end, but there's a nice lake where you can sit and enjoy the quietness, and maybe have a picnic.

A few good upward climbs but nothing too steep or steady. The wildflowers, meadows, forest canopies and views make for an excellent journey up to Lily Pad. The lake was pretty clear of lily pads except for one small cluster, but it's beautiful nonetheless and a nice rest before making your way back down.

This is a great hiking trail. Took about 2 hours to go all the way to the end where the lake is but I am also 7 mths pregnant and had a 4 year old AND stopped for tons of pictures along the way! Great nature photo opportunities! I would recommend taking a lunch to eat when you get to the lake...we spent a good hour just enjoying the lily pad lake area! FYI.. lots of rocky terrain making for pretty unstable path but very doable doable still. If wanting more flat terrain path..don't do this one!

Great well-marked trail. Went in the afternoon today. Easy hiking with several easy inclines and declines. Lily pond and adjacent lake were awesome. Rained for a little bit but that made it perfect temperature for hiking. Several streams to cross on the way to the pond. Beautiful scenery :)
