nice little hike along I-70. I stopped there later in the afternoon, mid week - still met like 4 groups on the trail.
There is a warning about steep and dangerous trail, which is a joke for anyone hiking mountains. They do not allow dogs, and I was bad and brought Duchess in (I always pick up dog poop), and it was an uncrowded late afternoon, early winter day… Can imagine that the parking lot is filled in the summer. Lots of resting spots along the trail. The lake itself is small, but nice with a nice boardwalk around.
