The trail into the lake is beautiful and well maintained. While it climbs nearly 1000 feet most of the climb is gentle. While there is a "trail" around the lake it clearly hasn't been maintained in some time. You'll have to break in places and climb over LOTS of deadfall. In some places it is very narrow with a sharp drop off to the lake. Kids would do great on the trail to the lake but you would need to carefully consider taking them all the way around

It is easily accessible which makes it somewhat crowded. At times in the middle of the day it was very noisy but quieted down when the NASCAR crowd headed back to their cars

Fishing was fun with a lot of small but hungry Brookies.

We would absolutely do this one again.

Very nice lake with a lot of people great scenery and pretty easy. If you do hike around the lake be prepared to do some bushwhacking. With all the blow downs and over growth the trail kind of goes away at the south end and the trail that is there is a bit rough going but fun.

Nice little hike. Lots of people. Lake has lots of hungry small brook trout. Small sparse huckleberries which was not the case the last time I was in.

This is an easy hike. We went on 6/24/17. It was a hot Saturday and very crowded. The trail has sweeping forest views on the way up, and the lake itself is gorgeous. We even swam in it for a second!

One of the most beautiful and rewarding short day hikes around this area. It is short enough for kids and pets and just long enough for it to be a challenge for them. The waterfalls, the pristine lake, the mountainsides of huckleberries.... What more could you ask for?! The lake is so gorgeous, but oh so COLD! A wonderful day adventure, or a fun beginning backpacking trip.

Every time I come, the experience is amazing. Beautiful scenery all the way to the lake. First time was in the middle of summer and and the second time was right before winter. If you're planning to camp I suggest getting up there early in the day to beat the traffic and claim your spot!

Light patches of snow near the lake. Beautiful spot!! We choose to do some light bush whacking and make our way around the lake, totally worth it!
