Beautiful hike, perfect for testing your gear. Very secluded and private. The lake was full of newts and fish, but access to the lake was limited. The water is warm and good for a swim. The only people we saw were a couple groups of day users who drove to a closer entrance for a short walk in. No one else on the actual hiking trail.

Very scenic hike and the ending point will not disappointment! However nothing is marked and not easy to find the trailhead. Hidden gem!

Easy going to the lake mostly downhill. The work out is coming back. The lake itself is very beautiful although it was a bit foggy on the day i was there so you really could now see the large trees up the from us. Nice hike and a very peaceful spot for lunch.
