A hike full of wonderful views leads to one of the area’s loveliest lakes, above which travelers will find campsites on granite benches that command spectacular views of the surrounding peaks.

Lousy hike. OHV road is like a freeway with all the dirt bikes and quads. Trail itself is one of the most poorly marked trails I have been on in 25+ years of backpacking. Don't know what the author sees in this dumpy little mosquito infested pool.
