  • For sure a must do! It's such a short walk to the small lake and it is just gorgeous. Definitely a site to see.  more »
  • Love the beautiful colors of the lake and wonderful hiking we have had so nice experience and relaxing time  more »
  • Nice. And easy to hike on over to Timothy Lake from there.
  • I think the other reviews overplay this spot a bit. The meadow next to the lake was a better view than this small crowded lake itself. If your in the area, sure it's worth a visit. But as someone who spends every day finding hidden waterfalls and lakes, this is nothing special.
