The trail is easy, though of course you're going to do a bit of uphill and back down...you're hiking to a ridgetop trail that has lovely views of the lake and the bay. Worth doing.

This was a fun hike we took in the afternoon. It was short enough so that the heat didn’t bother us too much. It is a paved road, but fairly steep. It took about 30 minutes for us to reach the lookout from our car....More

It was easy to find and an easy hike with kids. The short walk is paved and, although uphill, not steep. We made it up with five kids varying in age. All enjoyed the breathtaking views.

My wife came across this place and wasn't real keen on doing the hike. However unlike with Emerald Bay, it's all down hill on the way back to your car. Awesome views and the deep blue sky and water made for some very special pictures....More

It's a steep walk up a hill, and the trail above offers amazing views and information. Well worth it.

This is a short hike (on a closed road) to see a great view, and well worth the time and energy. Easy to get to... and when you get to the top, make sure you walk around the trail.

We took our three year old up this trail with a stroller. A nice short hike (1/2 mile maybe). Fantastic panoramic views of Crystal Bay and Agate Bay. There were wind surfers above us. We will have to do it again.
