Arrived at the trailhead at about 1130 and there were only 2 other cars in the parking lot. The trail is in good shape with only two smaller trees that have fallen into it but are very easy to cross. There is a lot of yarrow, brides bonnet, and even some tiger lily in full bloom! We got to the lake and planned to relax and have some lunch but the mosquitoes were INSANE. We could not stop for even 1”-15 seconds without being completely swarmed so we grabbed some food and ate on the move. It’s a beautiful lake though and under better circumstances I’d love to return and hang out a bit.

Be sure to check out my video to see how beautiful this hike really is!! https://youtu.be/vI_R__1p7W8
