Easy paved trail ending with a stunning lake view. Great place to get out and stretch your legs if you've been driving on 20 for the day. Hiked in Oct. and the colors were beautiful. Saw lots of chipmunks, squirrels, and a field mouse on our walk.

Very easy hike, to see a Gorgeous lake in the end. Defiantly worth the effort for the view, unless you like dirt under your feet, then this isn't the trail for you, but a must do for a photographer!

I think the reward for the this hike is extremely high for how easy it is. The trail is wide, easy and not very long at all. You pass through streams and a nice waterfall.

We went Forth of July weekend while the snow was all melting and it made the lake glorious. Waterfalls were cascading down the mountainside with mighty roars.

I hope that the park service extends the viewing platform in the future over to the left a bit. It is pretty small and can get pretty cramped quickly.

Short paved trail to pretty alpine lake. Good for kids and wheelchair accessible.
