"The beautiful alpine valley at the end of this relatively easy hike to Kennedy Lake is not the place to go in search of solitude. This delightful area attracts a multitude of hikers and horse packers. Adding to the mess and congestion, a large herd of cows resides at the lake throughout the summer."
