We hiked to the waterfall. Great trail pretty easy u til the last mile then it was moderate with more rocks and incline. The waterfall is beautiful!!! And at the top of the waterfall where the water comes out of the mountains had my kids in awe!!! Trail was mostly shaded. Great almost 5 mile hike to the waterfall and back.

My wife and I loved this hike along with staying 2 nights at the lake. This valley is very green and beautiful! The trail has a very gradual incline through the nicely shaded trees in the beginning next to the mountain stream. Once you hit the beaver ponds, the trail opens up into this meadow where you can see some cliff sides and water falls. The last 1/3 - 1/4 of the hike inclines a lot in elevation towards the lake. We found a spring running into the lake on the south East end. It provided very clean water to drink while we were there.

This hike was 6.25 miles and took us about 4 hours to complete. The route we took was 1250’ in elevation. I agree with other reviews. The hike would have been better if there was a clearer route to take. The all trails route was tough and required a lot of bushwhacking in the general direction of the lake. The lake was beautiful. If I knew the trail would have taken so long, we would have brought lunch and more water. This would have made it so we could have stayed at the lake longer when we got there. We had kids down to 3 yrs old with us, but I would not recommend it. They were on our shoulders most of the hike.

My husband and I with our 5 kids (ages 2-11) hiked up to the waterfall and back (about 6 miles total). We carried the 2-year-old most of the way, but our other kids did great! It was a really beautiful hike! I’d like to go back and go to the lake.

Poorly marked trail...we never did find the lake. But it was beautiful just wandering around on different trails.

this trail is not heavily trafficked and most traffic is going to the waterfall, which forks to the left about a mile in. The terrain changes multiple times, and rates from difficult to moderate. There are gorgeous valleys on the way filled with flowers and stream crossing. My 8 year old made it about 4 miles up, and back with several breaks so you can take younger kids. We also always see wildlife, including rubber boas. Be ready to herd cattle out of your way here and there.

Loved the deep wooded area at the beginning and then the wide open bowls with super lush wild flowers, many beaver dams, small waterfalls and steep hiking up to the lake which was full of salamanders.

Beautiful trail, but quite steep near the lake.

Great hike. We hiked this on 7-9-16 and it will be on of my favorites because of the views.

My cousin and I came here looking for a 'remote' hike. What we found was a mostly ATV path. We had an old map, no compass and no clue. We were trying to find Crescent Lake, but found a mosquito infested pond instead (after reviewing the map later, we assumed that was probably the 'lake'). We ended up camping by the stream instead (after fleeing from the swarms of mosquitoes). The stream was pleasant and followed the trail for most of the trip. The stream starts with a spring at the base of Doubletop Mountain. We meandered a bit on our way back, still hoping to find a real lake out here - but we went home empty handed.

I kind of like a challenge and 'roughing it' - so this wasn't all that bad. Picky hikers beware. Ultimately it was a 'miserable-funny' trip where we decided to go off the beaten path, and found a few surprises. I won't be doing this one again, but it was fun going somewhere unusual and 'winging' it.

All of that said - this might be a decent ATV location. Plus, this had THE MOST AMAZING field of wild flowers I have ever seen in my life... Every color and what seemed like 100 variety for what seemed like a mile. It got a couple of 'tough dudes' to get all sentimental. That field (at the trail-head) would be reason enough to bring a significant other here, if you lived within an hour drive.

4/5 stars for a little adventure, at least one source of water and a flurry of color.
