Amazing hike, I wish I was bright enough to read a few more reviews as it was basically straight up and straight down. I've been on a lot of hikes, but this one is definitely the one to take your buddy on that thinks he can out hike you. I made it to Cedar Lake but it was getting dark so I had to head back. I'll definitely come up another time and check out the other lake as well.
Did this hike yesterday, and had extremely muddy areas because of all the rain we had last week. The hike was fun and challenging in some areas.
This is a great hike very steep was even difficult for me as I am new to hiking! I didn't make it to the end but plan on completing it this week! Great work out though
beautiful lake views!
Great hike! Trail is well maintained. Up hill in and down hill out. The beauty of the lake is well worth the effort.
The lookout points are amazing. I took my 5 year old no problem.
It was a killer going up with my 5 year old. Loved the top and the trees and lookouts. Definitely will do again so much to explore around the area.
Bugs will get you on the way up if you don't keep a steady pace! I think they were eating my bug spray! Beautiful forest! I loved it! Up, up, up you go!
such a great view. the incline was pretty killer though
It's a very short and satisfying trail. Steep in the beginning. Then it levels out. Lots of viewpoints close together.
This is the first hike we have done in years and it was more difficult than we could have ever expected but it was worth it. Going back down hill was actually more difficult! it was so beautiful and the other hikers gave us motivation to push through. We highly recommend this trail! make sure you wear the appropriate footwear and bring trekking poles. Go on the morning before it is too hot. You will sweat!
