Great hike through the forest. Easy Hike . Great view of the lake. Hiked early in the morning . No one was there.

When you finally reach the lake, there isn't much space to view said lake. Boulders, branches, and people everywhere. It's a quick hike if you're driving through independence pass, but be prepared for a letdown at the top!

Nice trail. Short. Scenic. Terrific photo opportunity at the very beginning of the trail, when crossing the bridge over the river/creek. Climb down close to the water on the huge rocks.

Great little trail to a scenic lake. It was the perfect way to end a full day of hiking in the area - we took some snacks and drinks up there and chilled by the lake. It was very scenic and there are lots of boulders to relax and lay on.

Nice and easy hike with a lake and view at the end, but there are definitely prettier alpine lakes in the area. Try Crater Lake or if you have 4WD Grizzly Reservoir instead
