No disrespect intended for the author of the trail guide here, but let me add a perspective. This trail is quite difficult, and it is considerably longer than 3 miles. There has been some land and rock slides that have made the trail nearly impassible in more than one place without exposing yourself to significant risk. There is not a lot to see on the trail until you reach the lake - which is magnificent. But unless you're a mountain goat, you have to take his first sentence "it's a shame this trail is so easy..." with a grain of salt. It is anything but. There is also a big mining reclamation project in the area and you should expect road delays of up to an hour as you make your way to the trailhead.
