Thought I would give this one a try with my kids (5 and 9) on a sunny Sunday. Luckily we arrived kind of early so parking wasn't a problem, but by the time we got back, everything was full. Lots of people and dogs on the trail, but I don't mind that when it's just my kids and I. Everyone was super friendly. Trail is easy to follow and well maintained. It took us a while, but both kids completed it, including around the lake. I wish there was more places to sit once you got to the lake, but we made it work. (Probably not much of an issue during the week, but it was busy today.) We all enjoyed the scenery.

This was a pretty easy trail. There are a few switch backs & no view points up to the lake. I don't suggest doing this hike on a sunny day. There is no view at the top, only a small lake & trees, so if you're looking to take full advantage of a sunny day I don't suggest this hike. However, It is still a nice small hike!

Nice trail left early morning. Trail got busy as we were finishing up.
