Though it was misty over the lake when we arrived, the winds were such that the lake became intermittently clear and we got several nice pictures on the short hike overlooking the lake. Lovely blue-green hues beneath lush, steep mountains.

I don't believe there is public transport to the mountain. We rented a vehicle and drove to the top(rim) and then hiked down. I did notice several couples coming from the bottom and hiking up as we were going down. There are... More

There is a paved road going to the top of the hill overlooking the lake, but I really would not see it as a hiking area. You would want to take a vehicle to the top. Once there, you will find plenty of easy places to walk... More
