As of Jun 4, 2016, camping and campfires are still prohibited within 1/4 mile of Lake Serene.

Description

Get a look at Bridal Veil Falls approximately halfway up the trail to Lake Serene before you start the switchbacks up to the lake. As you climb up the side of the mountain to the lake, you get a good view of the valley below right before you cross over a saddle into the bowl the lake sits in. The water is clear, with several shorepoints to enter the water for a swim.

Easy start and a steep second half. Lake is beautiful and the trail is well-maintained. — 4h 02m
