We took our 2 and 5 year olds from the main trailhead and back. No boat for us. The views of Redfish were nice as we walked along the ridge and watched boats shoot across the lake. We also saw a very cute weasel or ferret of some kind. The actual destination though was a very buggy lake that was sub par for what other things you could see in the area. If all the hikes that are possible in the area are accessible, I would not recommend this one. We did this simply because the hikes we wanted to do are still frozen over.
