My Wife and I walked to the Grassi Lakes, its fairly straight forward by following the signs. The path is accessible and only steep in a few parts. The view/s are breath taking at he top and worth the journey.

The road to the parking lot at the trail head is pavement. The gravel starts if you want to go past the trailhead.
