The hike begins on an old road system to the base of Bridal Veil Falls a worthy destination in it's own right. From the base of the falls a renovated trail system climbs 1500 feet through old timber to reach the lake.
The lake basin faces north and can hold snow until July even on low snow years most likely from avalanche activity throughout the winter from the towering Mt Index. Lake Serene is most likely best fished from a raft although this is not a necessity. Anglers can get their gear in the water from the outlet side of the lake rather easily and more adventurous hikers can venture around the shoreline boulders that have calved off of the Norwegian Buttress and the other sheer faces of Mt. Index.
