Started at the bottom of the trail for Mangerton Mtn. Hiked up to the Devils Punchbowl. Followed the ridge around to the left up and around the lake and back down the other side. Amazing views from the the top of the mountain.

    The trail is very easy to follow and the sceneries are worth the effort. You can even go on the edge of the mountain to see the next lake which is also stunning. However, the weather up there can change very quickly and the wind is very strong and cold.
    We did the trip in approximately 4 hours, detour and breaks included.

    Très jolie vue qui vaut l'effort !! Montagnes, lacs, ... Beaucoup de vent, beau soleil, très satisfaits. Nous avons mis 4h30 avec les pauses. Nous ne sommes pas de grands marcheurs habituellement. Fiers de nous !

    Hi, would it be difficult to get up there before the sun comes up with headlamps or is it pretty safe?

    The track is well worn so you should be able to follow it up. It can get pretty boggy when wet though.

    Thanks a lot for the answer. I'll add a review on Monday then. Cheers.
