  • Huge elevation climb and 5.5 mile tough hike on a rather challenging trail....but once at the lake a great place of rest and beauty as you rest before the easier downhill. Toughest also would be drive...  more »
  • Family of 4 hiked up. Well worth the experience. Ice still in the lake and walked through snow. Kids were sliding down mountain on jackets.  more »

  • Great hike.
  • Beautiful alpine lake. Definitely worth the hike up. Can be done in a few hours for a nice day hike that is slightly challenging. We went in July and camped and it was still very cold with snow on the ground and ice on the lake but still fun and gorgeous.
