  • Great 3.8 mile hike round trip. We hiked through relatively flat trail, a few temporary creeks (until snow melts) and easy grade up. It was one of the few trails open in June, due to snow packs...

  • Amazing spot, beautiful lake, stunning mountain peaks, waterfalls everywhere, wonderful stroll through the woods, a completely fulfilling interaction with Mother Nature
  • Beautiful hike to the lake via Cutthroat trail. The trail is easy, not too steep and very clearly marked. The terrain is a little uneven but as long as you have good shoes it shouldn’t be a problem. The lake is so beautiful it is well worth the 2 miles up and back. The water is crystal clear and it is completely unpopulated, no campgrounds or homes...just you and nature!
