This hike was more than I expected. Great for my 2 smaller dogs. Lots of areas to take breaks for the pooches and water up. Cool breezes and super lake views. My GPS tracked about 4 miles out and back. I will do this again and hike further to Ollalie Lake. "Leave it better than you found it" ✌

Went in January. Snow once you get a little high up and the lake was very cool.

My husband and I have been hiking this trail for at least 20 years. It's one of my favorites but unfortunately has become so high in traffic it feels like we're in a mall. I would recommend this for people who don't really want to go hiking. It's easy, crowded and there's no chance you'll see any wildlife. You may see a jerk drinking beer and listening to their iPod without headphones...

This is a great little hike for all capability levels.
