Trail is fantastic all the way to the lake. Your feet will be muddy and wet after going around the lake unless you go very out of your way. Just wear waterproof boots/shoes. Try to stay right and look for trail remnants or cairns while climbing the scree/talus field. There isn't a ton of snow, but the direct route is in. I took crampons but didn't use them; wearing them could have helped. See picture of the snow.
