Hiked 9/15/18. Add this to your Fall colors to-do list! Understand, there are zero trees on this hike. But there are a bazillion willow bushes that light up, and unlike aspens, they actually get some orange too. And there are plenty of aspens along the drive in. The wide open gulch gives you expansive views above and below. The trail is well maintained and easy to follow. And the lake is very peaceful.
