First to Review

overall the hike was alright, not too fantastic. the real bummer is that the whole final leg (I hiked counter clockwise) was just walking on a road. And what's worse is that the road had a speed limit of like 50mph, so if you're doing this hike I would definitely recommend bring some hi-viz for the stretch after the lake. Decent views off the hills for the first half but that whole post-lake stretch was a bummer.
