Great hike. Gradual incline. Coverage from the sun is a great plus in the summer. a little chilly this time of year so dress accordingly.

Excellent hike. I. started the hike at about 3 PM wondering how long it would take to get to the lake with my little Boston terrier. Another fellow hiker informed me that if I took the steeper trail I could get there faster in and out in about 2.5 hours. That is what I did. The hike was a lot steeper than I imagined, it was quite the work out. My dog loved it and so did I, we have been back twice already.

Tips: Dogs off leash on odd days only; $3 park fee upon exit; they accept cash and credit cards.
