Did this backpacking trip July 2017. The hike up is very steep in many spots and too many streams to cross to even count. There are tons of wildflowers along the trail and there is a pretty large rock fall to hike through. We saw a mother moose and her calf and a male at dusk up at the lake. Very strenuous hike but worth the work as the lake is a beautiful, clear alpine lake above treeline. There were 3 other groups when we got there but there are plenty of areas to pitch a tent.
