Hiked out to the lake early before the crowd came. It's a pleasant one, with gradual incline not being too much of a problem once you clear the initial switchbacks near the trailhead. Descending to the lake is an unreal view and it's simply one of the most serene places I've ever been.

Was SUPER crowded on the way out, so be warned it does get busy. Would definitely take away from the peaceful experience of having the lake mostly to yourself.
