HikingGreat!

Nice trail with a beautiful view at the end. The last couple miles on the way up were a bit steep but other than that the trail was pretty tame. Had to go across three streams and chase a herd of cattle off the trail but manageable. Only saw 2 sets of people the whole time so that was a plus

HikingMuddy

My wife and I hiked this trail on Aug. 27 in the afternoon. We are both in our 60s and found it a good length and difficulty. We didn't see anyone else on the trail. Took us about 5 hours round trip. It rained and hailed on us from about the halfway point to the lower lake. It was getting windy and cold so we stopped there and headed back to the trailhead. After the first two miles the trail is pretty heavily wooded. We crossed a couple of streams. The rain made the trail pretty muddy and us too! I was hoping the lake would be more open but the shore has lots of trees. It was a good hike and would have been even better with better weather. No mosquitoes but some flies in the pasture areas.

HikingGreat!

The trail is perfect. Beautiful! 5+ miles in wasn’t too steep, lots of creeks to see and waterfalls to listen to. If this was my last hike of the summer I’d be good with it. Perfect hike and lake.

Great trail with beautiful wildflowers in bloom. Can be used for hiking, biking or trail run. Started out the hike with all ages and the youngest quit about 1 mile in and headed back. Definitely on the moderate side. We trail ran out and it wasn’t too bad areas of shade to stop and cool down.

Didn’t do the whole thing because we didn’t have bear spray and the group got scared. Will definitely do it right next year. Nice gradual incline and lots of shade. Lots of mosquitoes too.

Easy hike overall. Took our dogs and they loved it. Bring a hammock and snacks and hang at the lake for a while when you get up there! Saw a few little snakes while hiking the trail.

June 8, 2017: wildflowers out, very pretty. Top half of trail still a bit snowy with several areas of treefall and a few small stream fords. Good time with the kids!
