If you are looking for a destination hike you have to check this one out. It’s not too bad of a hike and has lots of switchbacks. The last bit to Overland Lake is a tough climb but worth it when you see the lake! Pack a fishing pole because this lake is loaded with brook trout! Great views and there is even a waterfall. Plan this one in the summer because even in July there was still snow in areas
