Steep in places, but so worth the work. Beautiful scenery.

Great view at the lake and good campsites. Lake is crystal clear. Very little dry wood available for a campfire. Only rated three because the trail was extremely overgrown for approximately 1/3rd of the hike. Very nice views from the saddle down to the lake.
