    I did this hike as an overnight snowshoe trip. It worked out quite well, although we did get a late start and wound up finishing the hike in the dark. The steady uphill grade made it a challenge, but even covered with snow the trail was easy to follow. There was a significant amount of snow on the trail even though we've had a mild winter this year. (1-plus foot at around 4000 feet to about 2 feet at 5000+ feet) The trailhead was easily accessible with my 4WD even though the road was ice-covered. The scenery was lovely, although we didn't hike all the way to the upper lake, we stopped at the lower. We're amateur snowshoers, and this trip was a bit of a challenge with full packs, but there is no exposure or avalanche hazard in the immediate trail area. Definitely a worthwhile hike.

    This trail is quite difficult, and it is considerably longer than 3 miles. There has been some land and rock slides that have made the trail nearly impassible in more than one place without exposing yourself to significant risk. There is not a lot to see on the trail until you reach the lake - which is magnificent. There is also a big mining reclamation project in the area and you should expect road delays of up to an hour as you make your way to the trailhead.

    Trail is close to being strenous.Folowing Cedar Creek the trail goes through lots of old growth cedar but pops out in a heavely burned erea many times.There are great views from the lower lake but don't stay there cause the upper is even better.
