    The hike from the trailhead gains slight elevation and is beautiful and is quite level until you reach the fork to either head straight ahead to Broadbent meadow or fork left to head up towards the lake. The elevation from there is intense for most of the rest of the hike. Once at the lake though it absolutely takes your breath away and is worth every hard earned step. Trout in the lake of a good size. Fresh water source into the major lake on the south side. Stunning. Lodge pole pines primarily.
