Hiked to Griswold Lake. Trail is fairly easy for the first 2.5 miles, then it gets steep with lots of boulders and lose footing. it's totally worth the effort though. The lake and the cirque are beautiful.

Make sure you get a key to make it through the gate by car and drive all the way up the road to the trailhead.

The hike to the lake is 7 miles RT with 2,800 feet elevation gain.
