Took the trail in early November, so the landscape was covered in snow, but not to the point that you needed serious gear to complete the hike. It was pretty strenuous hiking up, as someone whose lived below sea level their whole life, but the view of the frozen lake, surrounded by snowcapped peaks was absolutely spectacular. Be sure to carry a couple liters of water, as even in the winter, the altitude dehydrates you quickly.
