Pretty lake and the hike is really easy. There was a fire a few years back and it hit this area pretty hard. It was still pretty though because all the burn allowed for new undergrowth and there was a lot of flowers. The lake is awesome as far as scenery. We fly fished and hooked a few but never landed them.

Hiked this with my two daughters and a friend of there's today 8-27-15. The weather was perfect and the hike itself was pretty easy but it seemed to be longer than 2.2 miles. A lot of burnt trees along the way but the lake was beautiful and we even jumped in before heading back down.

It was cool. I would prefer going in the morning when it's not so hot. Saw a mountain goat! Also monster fish at the lake. You should go.

Did this hike this year in early August. Good hike for any age, even came up to mom with 2 little girls along the way! Carried our fly poles and had a beautiful day fishing. Sadly, no bites...but still a great day! Carry a lunch and enjoy the view!
