One of our favorite day hikes - good for kids and adults. The lake area can be crowded in the summer but most of the trail is pretty low usage. The stream crossing below the dam can be tricky when the water is high. If you want to cut the hike a little short, you can walk over to the main trail from the swimming area, and skip the eastern side of the lake.
