Hiked out .7 miles from trailhead with family, ran the rest. The trail past the visitors center is currently closed 1/2 mile out. I got 5 miles all told.

It's not a bad hike. The scenery is beautiful. We hiked ~1.5m out and back from the visitor center to the campground. There is about 1/2 mile just on the side of the road which wasn't great. We had limited time so we had to head back. I think a better hike given our time constraint might have been starting at the campground and walking around the lake a bit.
