This hike up to Grand Point View seemed pretty sweet. Nice lazy switchbacks novice mountain bikers to strong runners seemed to enjoy. Absolute perfect weather mid afternoon. Lots of shade. Maybe three notable lake views. Multi use trail was in full swing. Slow hikers, solo mountain bikers, groups, young groups, runners, famlies big and small. I think I was the upper age limit too.

Sunday was a lot less packed than Saturday at the lake. Yesterday the west end of the lake looked like a movie scene. Wish I would have snapped a photo. Several hundred boats on the lake looked like gridlock.

Pine Knot was much better than anticipated. A route I found online from a few years ago was nowhere near the current layout. All the signage appeared new. Looks like the FS got serious about creating a nice network of trails for the south shore.

Large easy to understand maps. Impressed with the material. Corragated like cardboard but soft plastic. Shoot it, doesn't shatter. Cheap enough to replace if needed, bet they have backups too.

While not jaw dropping, Grand View Point is a nice destination.

I read reports of this creek running earlier in the year. Bone dry today.
