  • Breathtaking place, both figuratively and literally. Prep for a little bit of hike. Think twice if you still have little kids that will ask you to carry them both ways or adults that aren't able to walk far on unpaved road, or have difficulty walking at an incline for a bit of a distance. Other than that, great place for families!!!

  • Whats there not to like? Maybe the extremely cold water, but thats also not that bad in October, cause i was still able to take a dive! In the winters you get a mind blowing view of snow covered mountains with glacier clean water of the lake. You can trek to different view points along the bay, we took the emerald point and it was amazing. Here are some photos of the view.

  • One of the most scenic places I have seen. The grand view of the lake and blue water with boats make it a perfect place for pictures and photo shoot. The place has a paid parking but if you are lucky, there are plenty of space in roadside parking. Good place for both, mornings and evenings, times photos. Don’t forget to visit DL Bliss Park which is very near to this place.

  • Such a beautiful place. Take your time site seeing and really enjoy the moment when you're up there looking at everything. The views are breathtaking

  • Very amazing place to go hiking. The lake itself is very beautiful to look at. It was very busy went i went and a lot of people had to park on the street but it was not too far out of the way. I expected it to be fairly busy because of how popular the spot is but its worth it. Before the start of the trail you do see a waterfall. When you do start the trail and get down to the bottom where the beach is , its a nice view of the little island in the middle. There is a little gift shop so you can get water and ice cream which was super convenient, and there was bathrooms as well. There was a trail past that point if you wanted to go hiking some more. It does get a little exhausting so make sure you have water if you continue hiking. There was a trail that had rock stairs that leads to a big waterfall which was the best part of the trip.
