Easy trail, paved, and good walk (not really a hike) with top notch, almost unbelievable view for the little effort expended. Great for families, those traveling with small children, those not able to do moderate to strenuous hikes, or those who have trouble with elevation gain. Great stop for hike-in/backcountry cold water swimmers experienced with sub-50 temps and limited entry/exit points. Beautiful rainbow trout along shoreline. Day of arrival water temp approximately 49 provided a good half hour of safe swimming followed by lunch on the bench. Perfect driving hike-in-to-swim break!
