Not much in terms of views until you get to the lake. It's quite a workout too.

Did this late spring when the lake was still frozen, and lots of snow on the trail, kind of bummed me out. I'm so glad I returned even though this hike is all up hill with quite the rocky trail. Its so worth it. The lake is beautiful, waterfall is beautiful.

Nice hike! Definitely all uphill! Check out the waterfall at the lake and make sure you go all the way to the lake!
