At the top you'll have an awesome view of Mt. Thielsen over Diamond Lake.
It's 9.4 miles round trip. Not 19.4.
I did part of this last week, but we went up the service road where it crosses, which I think was a mistake. was hoping for a spot with a good view of the mountain, but no such luck. it was still a really cool hike.
it's most likely more fun at a different part of the year due to tons of mosquito swarms haha.
late June/early July is kinda harsh.
overall an awesome hike though.
We hiked the first 1.6 miles of this trail to an outstanding overlook of Diamond Lake. The hike is moderate in difficulty as it's all uphill but well worth the effort. Once at the overlook ares, scramble a hundred feet or so up the embankment for an unobstructed view.
