I agree with other hikers that this is definitely a horse trail. Very difficult to walk on the path due to hoof imprints in the ground. There was a nice small strip above the lake, however, where horseback riders aren’t allowed. We didn’t go down all of the way due to storms, so I’m not sure how the rest of it looks, though. Probably won’t go back, but it was a quick getaway hike within short driving distance.
