Hiked this with my family on memorial day weekend. My buddy was almost struck by a running deer in the meadow near the start so be alert to close encounters. Aspens, towering peaks and streams make for good views. Wife and daughter, with dog, turned around about 3/4 of the way while my son, our friend and I went all the way to the lake. Beautiful in May with snow still covering the peaks. Not much area around the lake that's accessible, but that may be what keeps this gem so beautiful.
