  • The walk up was fairly moderate although with the snow that made it harder. The view however at the top is exceptional. Can see the whole lake perfectly and get a great picture.  more »
  • A short, moderate hike up to a fire overlook station. Easier than the other lake view hikes (Garfield Peak, Mount Scott, Cleetwood Cove). The views are stunning particularly of Wizard Island.  more »
