A mosquito paradise. Please wear protection and bring bug nets. The hike up is thick and boggy, very muddy, but there are logs and rocks in places to be able to maneuver through. After a few miles, the more uphill you get the more the bugs thin out. At the lake itself the bugs aren't bad at all, but through the marshy woods they are terrible, and my sisters got bit so many times, the next day their faces swelled to the point that they were unrecognizable. The lake is peaceful and serene, birding was enjoyed, and listening to the loon calls echo off the water into the night was like a scene from a movie. Overall, I think the lake is worth the hike and for me, I was so distracted by trying to escape all the mosquitoes, that the elevation gain went unnoticeable as I was practically running and rock hopping through the woods.
