The beginning of the hike was a bit hard to find because it's literally next to the main road (which led to some nice rock climbing), but once we found it, it was quite nice for beginners! Only saw one other person, oh! and during the winter there is no fee. :)

10 dollar entrance fee, but the hike is pleasant. Lots of wildflowers still when I went. Lake is only a few feet from the trail, with many opportunities to take a dip if it gets too hot. Generally a good walk.
