beautiful views throughout, trail starts out fairly smooth with minimal elevation gain, gradually gets rockier, some class 3+ climbing on rock along the trail for some excellent views before reaching the summit. overall fun hike, highly recommended.

Views at the top and the midpoint are awesome and worth it!

Notes:

According to my GPS and TOPO!, the quad (and the map in the guide) aren't correct. You end up following the ridgeline.

The first mile and change is frequent ups and downs. That will take you to the midpoint. It has great views! The second mile has about 1000 feet of elevation gain, so it requires a little dedication.

This is a pretty area, but it's a very basic lake view with a hike around it that doesn't provide much variety. Good if you're looking for very easy/flat terrain but little to see outside of what you can see from the road.
