Wonderful trail.
And it is surprisingly easy as well.
It's a "long" trail, but flat. You won't get any steep climbs or something.
There's no reason to not do this trail.
The lake is absolutely beautiful! I don't recall any easier trail with such a high reward.

Reached the lake after treading through the snow. Unfortunately the lake is covered with snow but you can still enjoy the nice views of the surrounding peaks. This hike can be done with boots alone but I highly recommend snowshoes and gaiters.

Don't trust the app, it's not a moderate hike. The trail isn't well marked. Worth the time and effort, though.

Wonderful trail. We went 5 miles in and then turned around. The trail did go on. We went early so avoided the heat, but most of the trail is in cover so should not be a problem.

The scenery is spectacular. With no wind had amazing reflections of the mountains on the water. The forest was easy. There are a few fallen trees on the path so had to either climb over or go around. Plenty of mud spots to navigate.

I've been here many times in both the winter and summer. It never disappoints.

We went in May and it was a little creepy feeling. We left after about 30 minutes hike in the forest. The forest was dead looking.

Amazing hike with amazing views. Can't recommend it enough.

Winter hike is beautiful. Mixed terrain, so some nice inclines to get your heart going a little, combined with winding, mellow areas. Chains are still required to get to the higher parking lots and, with all the snow we've had this season, avi gear is highly recommended. Areas that are normally low risk are a little more dicey this season.

Did the hike twice, first in 1972, then at night in Oct. 1979 en route to climbing Wedge the next morning. Trail is a little steep for novices but no problem. It's probably better nowadays. Running shoes NOT recommended. Back then the glacier dropped right into the lake. I understand it's retreated quite a bit since then. Awesome place to wake up to in the morning. Recommended for any reasonably fit person as a day trip or overnighter. Don't be put off by the comments below about it being tough. It's very doable by any fit person.

Hard but doable. I did it shortly after recovering from mono. Insanely beautiful views. Scrambling at top but not impossible in hiking boots. I would suggest bringing hiking poles for the trip down.
