Not very populated, great nature, we did the trail twice in 2009 and then 2013. The way up to the start of the trail was washed out and good we had a 4Wheel drive. The trail itself is well maintained, but traces od bears along the hike. The trail is not steep, but you need some condition, there are some stoney sections, but nothing to worry about. In 2009 we even saw a grizzly approaching us from the other side of the lake. I would recommend this trail for a group. Not sure how a local sees it, but despite the well maintained trail, you are a bit away from the town. The lake is wonderful. The mountains as well. The outhouse was destroyed by an avanlanche in 2013. Check about the road condition up to the trail start before you decide to walk this trail. As said, it was pretty rough in Oct 2013.
