Wonderful Hike! It starts in a thick forest through rivers and streams, and then crosses over to a meadow like trudge up alongside a mild groove where a waterfall might one day fall. After reaching the peak of forestation, the trail continues past miniature trees and snow patches, and then into layers of giant crumbling rocks before reaching the final destination, the hidden lake. The trail has it all- quite dense at times, airily freeing in the meadow, and almost invisible at others.
