  • Amazing! Trail is well maintained and provides plenty of space to rest on the steep walk back up. Never seen so many switch backs in my life until I hiked Angels Landing in Zion! Definitely worth the hike down to the water!
  • Awesome! Trail was really nice down to the lake. It cost way too much money to enter the park! That was just wrong! If you're going to charge that much money then the visitor center and everything should be open everything like that was closed it cost 50 bucks for us to get in and The Visitor Center was closed and the there was no 1 round to nearest Rite direction or for information! For that much money everything should have been open on a Saturday afternoon
