Parts of trail were covered in slush/snow in mid-June. Definitely need layers to keep warm. The view of the lake was stunning!

The lake is beautiful. My kids loved it. The trail has a lot of snow covering it and it is quite slippery but worth the work.

Still a lot of snow on the trail making it hard at times to find the trail. The lake was very beautiful.

Great trail, packed snow, slick in spots. Boots a must, walking poles/sticks helpful!

Hiked in mid May. Snow on most of the trail but nothing difficult. Beautiful bluebird views of the peaks and nearby rivers.
