It’s beautiful short hike. A bit steep just how I like it. But once you’re at the top of the hill which is approx 0.5 to get to the top, it goes flat and you’ll enjoy the scenery view of the lake throughout the hike. The fall season hike is amazing

I wish I could rate this trail. But, we arrived at 7:45. The gate said they opened at 8. We sat at the gate until 8:30 and no one opened it. No answer at the park office.

I wanted something less than the 12 mile trail, and I really disliked the tall hill at the end of it, so I started a couple of miles in, parked on Country Pl because there wasn’t any closer parking, then hiked to the trail. It was a manageable uphill, though the downhill was a little overgrown. Only saw 2 people in 5 hours of hiking. The only thing wrong with it was there were no vistas from the top.

Went trail running here for the first time. Path was easy to find and follow from the south parking lot. The turnaround point for this trail isn’t marked well I had to pop open the app to realize. 11.97 in 2:17, got out right at 8 am Monday and only saw 2 people on the trail in the last mile back.
