Short trail with a couple steep grades. Lake is very high with flooded timber along most of the shore line. Last 1/2 mile of road is very rough and rocky. Consider parking and waking that last portion. Beautiful spring along the trail just before getting to the lake

Not a bad little hike. The trail starts off steep but eventually mellows out.
