We only hiked the first two miles of this trail. The high water in the lake prevented going further. We only planned on doing the first three miles anyway. Road to trailhead washed out about a quarter mile from the start, we had to park back at the Half Moon Lodge. Moderate hike for the first two miles, but very scenic.
