Great little spot. Has ponds/ lakes all round it. Above and below. The upper ones are worth the hike up the waterfall. There’s another lake and four other ponds up there in the bowl of the mountain. I went June 8-10th 2018. Still snow all over the place but not excessive. Took a dip in the lake it was obviously freezing but to say I was the only person in a lake is a cool feeling. Most the weekend my group and I were the only people up there. Such a beautiful little area. Definitely worth the drive to get to for the 45 min hike to solitude.
