Pretty good hike. First time going. Didn't go all the way. Maybe 3 miles in. First 3/4 mile was relatively easy. From then on it was hiking upwards continuously. Trails were muddy in spots from melting snow. We were the only people out there, so definitely not a heavy use trail. Seemed more like it was used as a horseback hunting trail, but the first part was really nice walking alongside the creek.

We found this hike in a book which said 3.5 miles to Cedar Basin, 4.5 miles to lake so I figured it was 4.5 to the lake! Nope. The first 3.5 miles are moderate and then it starts climbing and climbing. By the time we reached 5 miles and 2400 feet of elevation gain, I was done. 10 miles is a lot for me. We never found the lake. After the first 4.5 miles, the trail gets kinda dicey and you have to follow the rock cairns.

Absolutely beautiful. I didn’t have time to go the whole way but it didn’t seem too hard from what I did. I’d highly recommend it.

Not a bad hike to the basin. I wouldn't rate it as hard, just the more difficult side of moderate.

Bears and Mountain Lions spotted. Make sure to bring protection.
