Very washed out. I think this is more moderate than easy. there are some very steep inclines and declines- good shoes are important. otherwise it was quiet and a good workout!

Fun trail that took us just over an hour. If you go right at the loop in the beginning, be prepared for an intense uphill section at the end! Really nice views of the lake. Definitely recommend. The trail is kinda torn up so just make sure you wear decent shoes.

This was my first solo and I didn't get very far before I started spooking myself. I think I need to take a dog with me. Very scenic trail and I'm disappointed I didn't finish it. This app is a little misleading about the trail though, because when you get to the beginning of it, in the rustic cabins area, the trail doesn't start at that point, you have to go 4.65 (or close to that) to hike the Lake View 2.0 trail.

Excellent afternoon day hike! Views during the winter months are a amazing as you can see straight thru the trees out to the lake. It is moderately steep in areas as the grade changes a good bit as you hike. I would suggest for less of a climb to hike this counterclockwise. The only gripe that I had was that it was poorly mapped with a few areas where there are trails that are not shown on maps shooting off different directions. There are a few of the inclines that are washed out as well, so be take caution when walking in leave covered inclines as the stones could shift around your angles.

This is NOT an easy take-your-grandmother trail. Steep up and downs.

We hiked this trail in April 2019 after a winter of extremely heavy rain conditions. The first part of this trail was washed out and had at least four trees down crossing the trail. We did this hike with a dog and had to lift her over the downed trees. I’m 30 and in decent shape and I consider the last third of the trail as moderate, not easy, with its steep grades both uphill and downhill. The water was not visible because of the foliage this time of year.

Nice trail. Most of the trail is well above the lake bank. Very pretty. Not too difficult but not super easy. Just right for 8yo+
