Our group of seven made this hike today and all enjoyed it. You have beautiful photo ops the whole way up and at the top. I would recommend that you wait to do this until you are acclimated to the elevation, because you start at 9,000 feet and climb to 11,000. Bring water and a snack and beware that the last couple of miles on the drive are steep and winding.

The hike was pretty much straight up the mountain. We stuck it out and it was worth the trip. Some travel sites said that this is the easiest hike in the area. It was pretty tiring but the lake at the end was worth the trip.
