Definitely longer than 9 miles there and back and although my wife and I are beginner/intermediate hikers, this was a difficult one for us. So worth it at the lake! Left at 8:30am, arrived at lake by 2 pm and made it to car a little after 5pm. Full day for us! Got some great photos and it motivated us to do Ida trail next time, looking up at it from the lake on this trail.
