The trail was beautiful in the fall, with the aspen's turning a yellow. The trail is well maintained, and easy to follow. The lake is pretty, but many of the trees in the area are dead from something (disease/pine beetles/etc), which detracts from the view a little. We made camp here our first day in the area, and it didn't disappoint. Worth checking out.
