The experience of coming out of the trees and first laying your eyes onto this sea of emerald green is indescribable. It is absolutely stunning and an experience completely worth the hike. The hike in itself isn’t anything strenuous, mild for the first half and then slightly steep for the second but nothing back-breaking (as long as you are in decent physical condition you should be fine). If there is anything specifically I would be worried about then it would be the crowd on weekends. The trail and the lake can get filled up really easily on weekends so starting early or doing on a week day is a much better idea. I started the hike at 5 am on a Saturday and that was completely worth it as I had the lake to myself for almost an hour.
