Walking paths for all types of hikers. You can plan for a 4 hour hike that gives you a workout with big elevation changes. Stop and rest at benches perfectly placed at great vistas of the lake and valley.

This lake is the perfect day trip for a family, couple, or group of friends. It’s so beautiful, and there’s a walking path alongside it with tons of options for somewhere to set up towels and go for a swim.
