I arrived at Alpental just after 9:00am and parking was 2/3 full. There was a moderate traffic on the trail but not too crowded to sunny Sunday morning. Last part of towards the lookout was pretty rocky but with a good trail shoes you would have no issues. View of the lake from lookout was of course great, but if you go down to the lakeside it must be breathtaking. Emerald green lake water reflecting snowy mountains was one of the most beautiful views I have ever seen.
Recommend 10 out of 10.
