Cascade Lake Professional Reviews and Guides
"A popular day hike or overnighter to a gorgeous mountain lake.
This is not only a great day hike but also a good choice for the beginning backpacker looking for one of his or her first nights in the wilderness. You can have lunch at the picnic area just north of the trailhead before starting to hike.
This trail used to start right in the picnic area, but a few years ago, the National Park Service moved the official trailhead to just south of the picnic area to provide
adequate parking. But you can still start the hike in the picnic area. It’s 2 miles to the large, deep lake, and the trail is in excellent condition the entire way."
