well maintained trail. goats are not shy but won't bother you. we hiked this to watch the eclipse and it was really fun. watch out for little squirrels they will climb in your trail mix bag.

definitely stop at Kelsey's All Natural on the way to or from your hike! They have burgers, breakfast and ice cream all homemade and absolutely amazing. they let you kick back and relax after your adventuring and the food hits the spot! also have a drive thru if that's more your speed.

Awesome views, nice wildflower spread in the meadow area before the final climb, plus 3 very photogenic goats at the top! :)

Great hike for the family! Beautiful scenery and kept all 4 of our kids (ages 2-13) engaged. The only reason I didn't mark as a 5 star is because there is only one unisex bathroom at the beginning of the walk, just before you cross the bridge, unless you venture into the campground. Seems kinda silly for how busy this place is :)

Trail was pretty well maintained, gorgeous views from the top! Our groups trackers definitely didn't match up with the "5.7 miles" we averaged about 7.7-8.2 miles depending on type of tracker. But overall a great hike for incline training with nice spots to rest along the way and at the top as needed. Watch out for bees nests! One had fallen in the middle of the trail on our way back down, bees were none too happy about that!

Good for kids. Took our 3 year old and 8 week old on this hike and there was plenty to keep the 3 yo entertained. It was the perfect distance with a suspension bridge at the turn around point. Busy trail but we didn't mind. If your looking for a kid friendly hike with excellent scenery this is for you.

Hiked this today with our 9 year old daughter, and had a great time, although we goofed up and thought the end of the trail was the lookout point. Apparently we were wrong, I guess if you keep going you get all the way to the lake. So kinda sad that we missed out on that. Also do not be fooled by the name! Lol LOWER does not mean it is not high up! Lol. This hike was ALL uphill! and very rocky. But it was a very cool hike. We loved it very much. great work out forsure. I would definatly wear hiking boots because of all the rocks. all in all a great day. Also it's dog friendly, but I would honestly feel bad bringing my pup on this trail, it would probably hurt his paws.

The trail wasn't that hard. Well for me and Stephen anyway, but we exercise as a lifestyle. It was beautiful and the top was rewarding.

Great trail with beautiful views of mountains, waterfalls and wildlife. Be aware that there are rolling hills for about 8 miles, and then you climb a fairly easy ascent with switchbacks. Worth the trip, but nothing too difficult.

I was tricked by my husband that we were going for an easy hike, me being a beginner at hiking I must admit I appreciated the challenge.

View was beautiful, there was a mama and baby goat which mama was in her natural habitat being (protective) and a little aggressive. As the two animals began to follow us down trail, we climbed up the (off trail) and proceeded with our hike!

Snow at the top., and a tribe of more beautiful goats!

awesome hike, beautiful lake.

Much harder than I expected. Be prepared for a very steep climb, but the views will make it all worth it. Even with a bit of smoke in the air from the fires I couldn't imagine better views. Chiming in with everyone else on here the hike is longer than it states above. We measured the length and for us it came out a little over 10 miles. Keep an eye out for mountain goats around the lake at the end. And last of all least go left after the first lake you see, not right.

Beautiful hike, well worth the effort! We parked at the upper trail head. Everything I read online led me to believe this hike was 3.2 roundtrip, but it was 3.2 miles each way. It starts with a short hike straight up, then switchback trails for about a mile. As you climb higher, the trail becomes more rugged, and you will be doing a little bit of rock climbing. I did not run into any goats up there, but saw their wool in the brush towards the top. I saw a handful of families with young children and a few dogs doing this hike. It is difficult at times, but doable for the moderate hiker.
