Pleasant hike although a bit longer than the 7.3 miles stated round trip. Especially if you want to view the lake - we turned back before viewing the lake stated in the description. Trail is easy to follow and has several ups and downs through beautiful flower meadows with mountains all around. Although says bear country we only saw a dear at a distance. Start early before other hikers arrive for a quiet hike. It is along CDT so expect others along the way. Great 4 hour hike in the area.

Impassable as of 06/10, but gorgeous view from the trailhead! Would love to do when the weather improves.
