Today was the perfect day to do this hike. A cool morning breeze really came in handy, especially since the first mile or so is mostly uphill. It eventually levels off and the treat is at the end when the trees open up to the lake and surrounding hills. You can pretty much make your way around the lake though the, I guess it would be north end, is a little tricky with fallen trees. Still, the area is beautiful and worth the effort to relax and enjoy the sound of woodpeckers and watch the ground squirrels raid your lunch bag.

Nice short hike. Hike would've been more pleasant if we brought bug repellent.
