Pretty well clear now. Like others said, very steep and rocky on the north side, A bit easier on the south.
Difficult but enjoyable. Not for beginners unless you have some mountain goat in your family tree.

A nice easy six mile hike with a water element. My dog and I lived it!

Amazing day trip. You are supposed to have a Lands Pass to get in. Or a hunting license. If you have a small car, prepare for some serious potholes on the way in. The hike itself is easy. It's the rocks and side trails that are the real fun. we never made it to the end of the trail (excuse to go back) because of all the climbing, jumping, and plain old fun we where having on the rocks. Keep your app handy. If not careful, it is very easy to lose the main trail.

It's a great trail for beginners like me (only 3 months since I actively started hiking), but unlike what everything says...it's not 6.5 miles for the full loop. It's closer to 9. And a tip if you are hiking with a four legged friend, be sure to pack plenty of water for them, as there are no water sources along the trail (I didn't feel comfortable anywhere along the trail even getting close enough to the edge of the lake for maybe a lap or two of her tongue to swoop some up). I recommend taking 2-3 bottles of water just for your fur baby. My 2 liter water sack was perfect for me though. There's a few inclines and as some have pointed out, an area that's not as well maintained. All in all though, a great trail for beginners or for those that want a good half-day hike.

Amazing walk going counter clockwise on the trail, just be prepared for the steep up hill back.

Wonderful walk. Go early and take your time. Dogs loved it too !

A very enjoyable trail overall. Not much to see once you are at the top but the climb more than makes up for it. Do not be put off because it says that it's strenuous. It is manageable for people of average fit and not as strenuous as described. Great short trail if you have only a little time!

The trail was absolutely packed and very noisy. Felt more like I was at Disneyland than a trail. The full service snack bar at the top was the icing on the cake.
