My 12yo son and I came across this trail almost by accident this week. We did the first 1.6 miles of this trail which put us at right about 1000 feet of ascent. Pretty good, gradual climb. Very little shade in that first part, though, so bring water. Due to time (and a pretty worn out dog) we turned around right as the trail became wooded. Scenery was great. The dead trees were pretty amazing to take in. Would definitely do the whole trail again if in the area.

it's a 8 mile hike. the first 6 of which are gradual uphill, enough to give you a work out, gradual enough to keep you going. The top of the mountain, the view is breathtaking, very beautiful, and would have been more beautiful if not for the smoke over the valleys. the trail ends far from a lake. The trail itself doesn't end, just on the app map. keep an eye out for a sign that says "Lola Lakes" because it has an arrow pointing towards the lake, (about a half mile before the end.) Towards the end of the trail is a fresh water spring coming from the rocks. its clean, cold, and fresh. The hike back, starts with a steep climb back to the peak, and its easy going from there. Have fun, stay safe and keep hydrated.
