We went a few days ago and we found it to be an enjoyable hike. Decent cardio workout. We didn’t see anyone the entire time which made us nervous about bears but we didn’t see any bear sign at all. Parts of trail were a little muddy and once we were close to the lake we were on deep packed snow. The lake was mostly frozen still. It was all uphill but not super steep. Our small dog made it no problem. The only animals we saw were chipmunks and a huge garter snake. The lake/views were pretty. There are absolutely no signs to help you find the trailhead. If you go over the bridge you’ve gone too far; the trail head is up on the right side of the road just before the bridge.
