The trail is a OHV trail, so it has a lot of loose dirt and rocks on the trail. Getting to the trail head can be a little tricky and shouldn't be done with a non-4x4 vehicle.

The hike there is beautiful, it's a little difficult to get down to the lake but worth it. There was quite a bit of people there already when I went (during summer of 2016)

Started hiking a few miles before to make the hike longer. Beautiful scenery and very clear water. Watching the bald eagle fly by was the icing on the cake!

The lake is pretty and you can swim in it if you can stand chilly water. However, if you don't have an all wheel drive, I don't recommend this trail. You'll have to park at bottom of the hill and it's at least a couple miles up a rough road to the trailhead without much scenery.

Fun trail, steep in places, pretty lake at the end of the trail.
