Well maintained trail, many people and dogs. The lake is amazing and there is still lots of snow around, we even saw a small avalanche from the rocky wall on the south side of the lake.

Did this trail on April 3rd. Great moderate difficulty trail, the waterfalls along the trail make it just that more amazing, building anticipation and when you get to the lake it's like winning a jackpot. There was still about 3 - 5 feet of snow around the lake in spots and a lot of the loop around the lake is still covered heavily in compact snow / ice. Highly recommend going earlier in the morning to beat the crowd, on the way down I don't think we made it more than 150 - 200 feet before running into another group. But this hike is totally worth it in the end.

Beautiful trail from start to finish, and what a payoff at the end! Gorgeous lake. Very rocky on the trail itself and very crowded trail - get here super early if you want to see it in a peaceful setting. Totally worth it!

The hike is a steep up hill event. Be prepared for hiking on rocks and going through many streams. The view at different points were beautiful and the lake covered in snow was a sure sight to see. Over all it was a fun and exciting adventure. My kids did fine too, very little problems.

Lovely trail, not terribly difficult. Great in the summer and winter, snowy and icy when it's cold. The lake is beautiful and there are many small waterfalls along the way up to it. Not too crowded but not empty.

Started at 2 and got back at 5:30. Not a long trail, but it was quite rocky. The view was awesome, especially with the snow.
