Phenomenal just barely moderate hike. We started at the LSR preserve, not the Death Canyon trailhead, and did the whole loop. We began around 8:45am and there was only one other car in the lot. When we finished around 1:00pm it was nearly full, though. It was a quiet, secluded hike up until the last few miles when we were on our way back down. Definitely recommend following the loop counter-clockwise for optimal views.

Loved this hike! Thought it was really easy for a high peak...like everyone else has said, the first 3 miles are flat with a tiny gradual descent with no rocks. There are a couple of look out spots along the way. The last mile is killer and seems never ending, but it's worth it!

Nice trail around a beautiful lake. Moderate is a fair assessment parking is limited and they don't allow overflow parking so get there early.
