The trail was great! The hike is a lot of climbing at an incline. The lake was beautiful. Definitely a fun and challenging hike for my family of beginners.

We actually didn't end up going to the lake. Instead we walked the fragrance lake trail until you are nearly at the lake, and instead took a right, then a left up the mountain to Cleator road. Once we got to Cleator road we continued uphill to the Cyrus Gate Outlook. It's a lot of uphill but wasn't very difficult for us, as moderate hikers. That view is worth it.

A nice 3 hour hike that included the lookout and the loop around the lake. Probably 5.5 miles total. Not for the really unfit but very doable for the occasional hiker. Not many sitting options around the lake (2 or 3). Trail well maintained. Busy by noon (weekend).
