Walked in the warm December 2019 / 46degrees. Should have worn crimps. Short easy loop. Very pretty!

Out and back, easy with crampons or good hiking boots. Only a little bit of snow and mostly ice. Waterfall is beautiful and easy to get to.

Leisurely and family friendly. Southern point is at lake level and can gaze at the fish life. Many picnic tables in the surrounding area for lunch and other trails that connect to the loop.

This is a great fun trail. Love to go when the the leaves are turning to see the foliage. You must go to the many overlooks and sit on a rock and take in the amazing views.

This trail was lots of fun and can be done very easily. I would recommend bringing lunch, water, and camera. The trail is pretty flat throughout and there are a lot of lookouts and views of the lake along the trail.

It can get loud with the crowds but everyone is so friendly and the loop is beautiful. Loved the lookout points too!

“Superhighway” so the loop around the lake was easy bit a bit boring especially for the kids who consequently took every optional side route diversion.. trail conditions fine. Some of the other trails that originate from here look interesrtong (see trail map)..
