This trail was even better than I was expecting. I suggest you start on the sunnyside of the trail so that towards the end you will be on the shadyside because during the summer it ends up getting pretty hot. We expected the walk to be shorter than previously described but the lake is deceptive in size. We found a beautiful spot to sit down and enjoy a leisurely lunch which was about a 1/5 of the way from the beginning of the trail. The pictures on other sites did not do this place justice because there are so many beautiful views and lots of places for photo opportunities.
