Nice little trail to a view of the lake. The kids really enjoyed it!

More strenuous than anticipated, but a rewarding experience. Make sure to go to the overlook. It's worth the extra effort and a good spot to hydrate and eat a power bar.

We did the West loop. We chose the switchbacks to the right from the parking lot and it's pretty much up hill for 1.25 miles. I believe you gain about 700 feet or so of elevation in a mile but the switchbacks make that really manageable for even us novices. The view at the top is so worth the effort. A really nice 2 hour hike.

Love this trail. My wife and I just hiked it today and it is a great work out. Not a strenuous hike but if you hike it at a fast pace it has some good elevation to give you a moderate workout. We will back more often.

Beautiful views, plenty of parking and a great work out!
