good walk

Great off the path hike. Definitely would go back! :)

Loved. this trail. We went off track and climbed up the gorge to the top of the bluff and down the waterfall. Although short it was like a real hike rather than just a trail walk. Would totally recommend but don't stay on the wide trails scramble over the rocks.

Beautiful walk around the lake; we saw turtles, geese, ducks, fish....my only gripe is that this is NOT moderate. It's very easy - groomed trail and benches every 50 feet or so.

Nice view. We drove the gravel roads from Alto Pass to get there. Not sure I would do that again.

Not really a trail. More a short walk. The natural bridge is pretty cool.

Great hike. Easy walking with a couple of waterfalls to hike up and down which would rate it moderate.
