I’ve done this hike as a day trip with kids and 60 something women and it’s totally doable for both ages. Well maintained trail all the way up with no water crossings. The trail is mostly shade, but still pack plenty of water for the trek. Not overly crowded, but lots of dogs. There are some good places on the west side to camp if you don’t mind the mosquitoes. There are a couple sandy parts, too, in case you’re brave enough to swim.

Love it very cleaned out trail and open some uphill spots but totally worth it when you get to the top!

Steep climb, but the lakeside view is worth it.

Climb up is a little steep but so worth it! Bring bug spray cause there are a lot! Once you're there WOW! So Beautiful, peaceful, with many more trails to do. We walked around the lake, found waterfalls and experienced many more views. Will definitely do again!

This is a pretty long climb. Trail is easy the walk is not. Beautiful area and will hike this trail again. Just know the climb is over 2300 ft in elevation. Easy trail moderate to hard climb.

The water is freezing, you need to go on really warm days. Crystal clear though, and beautiful views. Great place for stargazing at night.
