We hiked in a party of 9, including. 4 year old. We all made it to the top. This hike was pretty steep initially but was well maintained.

We did stumble upon a large bear about 1/4 of a mile from the lake. He was standing up sniffing the hikers in the front of our group. He then turned and ran down the ridge. Carry bear spray!

The lake was beautiful but very windy. We didn’t stay at the lake long because it was really cold with the wind.

The trail head says 1.5 miles but it is farther than that.
