Great hike! Strenuous, for sure. Very up hill. Bring lots of water, and maybe a snack or two to enjoy at the top. The lake is really the highlight of the hike, but there is sl much other beauty to see on the way up.
Beautiful scenery, ferns everywhere. There were a few spots where the vegetation had grown over a little and you had to walk through the ferns, which was a little unplesant at times. We saw a little stream a couple of times, which our pup enjoyed jumping in, since it was so hot.
Sunfish Pond was amazing. Not really water you wanna go sink your feet in to, but it was a natural beauty well worth the hike up with tons of bullfrogs and tappoles, cool rock piles around it and a couple nice places to rest.
Definitely recommend.
