Oh my goodness,  this was the perfect fall hike! We were sure to arrive early and still parked along the road. Luckily we caught the sweet spot of the early early birds coming down and made it to the lake with only a few others. The hike had non stop "oh my" moments!  Plenty of colors and the larches were abundantly beautiful! Many, many people headed up as we were headed down- so very grateful for the tranquility we had while at the lake. Would recommend for children as well as I would definitely take my 7yo if I did this again.
