4 Stars because it looks amazing online but that is during spring/summer. I came early October and there was zero water. None. It was completely dried up and that was to be expected but was still a little disappointing. Very easy hike from the valley....More
The 4stars are for what it would be if there was water. We came during fall break (oct 11th) and it was absolutely dry. Not checking out if there was water or not, we did the hike, thinking how could a lake dry up? It...More

In spring this will yield the photos you want,...More
