But steep enough to satisfy non-beginners. Did this one on a snowy Monday morning and only encountered a handful of people. The creek and lake area was beautiful although not too much to see at the lake. Way back was super fast.

I hiked this in mid December after a period of no snow. There was still snow at the boulder field and above. I went up the new trail and down the old. It was only upon reaching the bottom (and losing the trail for a bit) that I saw all the warnings about getting lost at the old trailhead. Be careful! And watching the reflective diamonds on the tree. This hike is a great challenge with views to match.
