Takes 2 hours and ~1300 feet of elevation to get up there, and lo and behold! There it is! this gorgeous lake! enticing you to go that extra mile down the rocky trail and take a dip in its chilly water.
That's exactly what we did. Skinny dip in the freezing water. The chill was refreshing after the exhausting hike on a hot summer afternoon. This was the hike of a lifetime.
