Amazing hike! My brothers and I set out for a different lake, ended up seeing the sign while we were hiking up and decided to switch trails. From trail head to top of Lake was 4.5 miles, sign was about a mile up. It took us about 2 hours to get up and about a hour down. Streams flowed well and lots of water for dogs. Still some snow. Gorgeous scenery and hike!
