So, this trail was recommended for families with kids. We don’t necessarily agree, at least not for small kids. We should have gotten a clue from the 4 mile total distance. The first 20-30 minutes was a pretty large incline. We had to hold the kids most of that time. It evens out later on. There are no views except for once you get up the first incline (see picture below). That was nice.
The hidden lake is pretty hidden, we almost missed it, haha. It’s pretty small, more of a pond. Overall it’s a nice hike for adults, took about two hours total.
