From Hwy 20, turn west on Sawtelle Peak Rd. Follow the road about 7.5 miles. There is a turn out on the west side of one of the switch backs where the trail head is. Sign is easy to miss if you aren't looking for it.

This is a very scenic hike that is about 6 miles in. It is mostly level, with a few harder areas and one area with switch backs. Took us about 2 hours each direction at a fairly leisurely pace.

Mount Jefferson is visible from almost anywhere along the path. Great views of Henry's Lake in spots. Wild flowers are amazing almost anytime of the non-winter year. You will cross the continental divide several times along the trail.

I suggest bringing a water filter pump as there is a creak about 4 miles in that you could refill at.

The lake itself was dried up in August, but the scenic hike was still very fun. The lake sits down in the bottom of a steep walled gulley.
