Rode bikes in first 4.5 miles, stash and lock em’ up. Very steep climb on way up, map says 1.5 as the crow flies, but probably closer to 3-4 miles up with turns and whatnot. Hike is very difficult up, with downed logs and etc. Lake was thawed and beautiful, lots of brown trout. Some small patches of snow, Mt Constance looks summit-able with good weather. Saw some people attempt it but got turned around due to weather. Good luck.
