A pleasant, easy hike. We went in July and there were wildflowers and beautiful groves of birches. Neither the lake nor views are spectacular compared to other vistas, but it is still lovely to access nature so quickly from downtown.

We trekked with kids. Trail isn’t stroller friendly the entire way. Had a few two person lifts up and down short rocky stretches. The lake is a great reward for kids.

The trail and lake are fairly exposed and I don’t know that I’d tackle this hike on a hot afternoon.
