Drove up from Denver and got to the trailhead by 9a. We made it to the lake by about 12, so 3 hours. And down in under an hour. There are some difficult/steep areas at the beginning and end of trail. Trail has both meadows and wooded portions, and wildflowers are beautiful. The trail is picturesque with the creek following, wildflowers, and the summit views. Trail had moderate amount of people and dogs. Very few bikes, no horses. Only major downfall was the I-70 traffic on the way home.
