The road to get to the trailhead is rough and a 4wheel drive vehicle with high clearance is necessary.

Beautiful lake, hike is deceiving. Starts our nice but gets a little rough 3/4 through. 2 rough areas but overall I give it a moderate rating. No equipment needed but fishing poles, fishing was awsome
