this is a great area. The first part of the hike is a nice workout, with rewarding rim views to motivate you. The cairn finding for the next mile or so, adds a bit of adventure, but nothing too bad. Lots of deer and elk tracks/scat, but not a one to be seen. Perfect setting for them though. The descent right before the lake is a very pretty area, lots of ferns, pines, and spruce. The lake is a small one, but secluded and very sweet. I even saw my first heron while hiking in AZ, it caught a couple of small fish before it caught sight of me and flew off. Amazing creatures!

Warning: heat kills!
Avoid 8am to 5pm over 90 degrees. Prehydrate & stay hydrated.
Avoid Heat Illness - do NOT hike when temps exceed 100 degrees, period.
