The hike itself is quite lovely, but you'll definitely want to go a little bit past the summit in order to get any views. Keep following the trail past the summit, hang a left at the split, and you'll find some lovely views of the lake within a quarter of a mile.

The road getting there is definitely rough, but, as long as you have an all-wheel-drive vehicle, you should be fine. To get back, I really recommend retracing your steps onto Sandwich Notch Rd/Dale Rd, instead of following the road all the way to Lincoln Rd. I made that mistake and I won't soon repeat it.
