The trail up to Weaver Lake was rocky but well marked and somewhat steep. It's a popular destination both as a day hike or backpack. With it's granite backdrop the lake was postcard perfect. Not a large lake but big enough it's a chore to swim to the other side. We swam and it was refreshing. The bottom is pretty mucky so wear water shoes. You have to climb across large rocks to get to the best swimming area on the far side of the lake. You can also fish the lake. There is plenty of room to set up camp, many spots have fire pits. The best camping is on the right side of the lake. When you hit the lake go right and cross the outflow. We experienced loads of mosquitoes. Most sites have a mix of sun and shade, a few were mostly shady. Some good spots for small groups, we had seven in four tents and did not feel crowded.
