Trail not well maintained... very steep and slippery for kids. We had to turn back midway. Lake super busy on a weekend.

The initial climb is steep with sloping easy-to-slide terrain. Sadly I went up 3/4 of the way and decided there was no way my husband could habndle any distance on this kind of path. So, we gave it up. Wish we had studied it further because we might have been able to do and out and back longer easy hike using the road. I chose it because it was rated “easy”. I am a very strong hiker and found the beginning to be challenging.

initial climb is ridiculous! The rest of the hike was nice. not much to enjoy walking back on the roadway. But no way that we would down the vertical section.

Beautiful all around views. Better to double back when you get to the end of the lake. We didn't see the point of the return route along the road for quite a distance.

Walk on a road for part of it... but the whole hike is pretty and the lake is beautiful!
