This was a great hike that is easier than other hikes in the area. Still a fair amount of elevation gain here. A rocky climb through a ton of streams with some great unexpected waterfalls. Very scenic Once you take the turn, it's all downhill towards the lake... which is a great run. A few nice spots to sit and have lunch, but cross your fingers that it's not too crowded. According to our neighbors there, the lake is pretty cold (they were swimming with their kids). Good solid climb back up to the main trail followed by a great run down. Pretty rocky in spots, but still a great running trail.
