Did this on a dayhike. I gave this trail 4 stars because of scenery, but for maneuverability, it deserves 3. The footbridge near the trail head is broken in half. Some kind hikers loaded the area with rocks so the crossing could be completed. The trail was difficult to follow in some areas due to lingering snow and snowmelt inundating the trail. The trail is steep, but those that read the guide know this. Will not try again until all the snow is gone... July at the earliest. Parents, keep your children close at hand as fresh tracks on the way back showed a mountain lion followed a family for a good amount of the trail. The lake itself is lovely, and hope to make it on a backpacking trip when we can linger/camp.
