My wife and I liked to hike the trail years ago. We camped at the lake three times and have just done the trail to the bridge several times. The bridge is a little more than half way to the lake. Nice spot fore lunch. It is a beautiful place.

Nice trail, not as strenuous as Sky Line. Could take the dogs along. Great views, good fishing. Fun day!
