“Challenging, but worth the trouble”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

Challenging hike, but our 5 & 6 year old made it with several breaks along the way. The view at the top is well worth the challenge!

“Every raves about this”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

I tried to make it to the top but my grandson fell and it was believed he broke it so after making it half way we came back down.
The "improved" trail was difficult for this senior citizen but I truly enjoyed all the great people doing the climb with us.
I hope to finish the last half this year.
It is suppose to be well worth the rocky and steep climb bring good shoes and water

“Still looking GREAT!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

A very relaxing view after a long hike up. They now have plenty of benches to sit on to take it all in too. Along the trail up you have options to sit on rocks etc in the shade. Be sure to take water! There are seven bridges the keep crossing the cool stream along the way. DON'T forget to go the extra 50ft to the Spouting Rock just above the lake. Many don't notice the sign or mistake it for a 'Keep out' sign. Great photo op!

“Crystal clear”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

What a beautiful lake. It is so clean and pristine.
The waterfalls just bring a special touch to the lake.

Let's keep it clean. Follow the rules and let many generations to come to still be able to see this beautiful place.
