Type of Hike

Day hike

Trail Conditions

Trail in good condition


Road suitable for all vehicles


Bugs were not too bad


Intermittent snow - not hard to cross

The trail has many rocky sections, so watch your footing, a pole would be helpful, still some small snow sections when heading down to the lake,  and they are melting fast with the hot weather we have, also the trail down to lake is pretty muddy, there is a split by the river for lake accesses, I went both directions, the one on the left has access to the water, felt good to take off shoes and socks, have the feet in the water after the hiking in upper 80s. The one to the right leads to a big rock that has a great view of the lake.

there is still ice in the lake, and snow in the mountains. A beautiful trail, to a beautiful lake

it is a popular trail since it is just off i90, an hour or so from eastside, a lot more young people on the trail (summer off, I guess), I lost counts on how many groups met on trail, but all were friendly, dogs on leash or under control, only saw two groups of young people having loud music playing.
