“A beautiful forested trail to a high alpine lake.”— Chelsea Gribbin
In addition, the bridge across the largest stream you'll encounter about a mile from the top has had a tree fall on it. This has caused the bridge to dip into the water by about 3 inches and you'll need to step over the tree. It is still possible to cross but be sure of your footing.
Finally, bring lots of bug spray, the entire trail runs parallel to some form of water and the mosquitoes were never-ending.
Parking at the beginning of this trail is on private property. You're better off cutting over from Rock Creek Trailhead.
