Completed this today with full backpack on as a training hike for longer excursions in the Uintas. This is a nice hike as the trail is not too technical and not as crowded as the neighboring Red Pine trail. The lake is surrounded by boulders, and the feeling is as if you are high up in a wilderness alpine setting much further from civilization. The snow is almost gone and the flowers are blooming. I surprised a young bull moose that was munching shrubs just off the trail. According to my Strava app, I logged 11 miles, with a little meandering at the lake, but I would say this trail is closer to 10.5 miles. I have done this many times and is a favorite of mine.
