Very enjoyable hike. Temperatures were plenty warm during the day, but cooled off nicely in the evening. Quite a few fish in the lake, but they weren't biting much. Definitely worth the extra hike up the hill to the top of the falls. Probably best early or late season hike. Lots of people, but room for many many more.
Tiger C. on Ancient Lakes Trail
Easy hike. Inside a bowl, not much scenic view. Some waterfalls.
Aislinn D. on Ancient Lakes Trail
Easy trail to walk on and some great views over the lakes and landscape.
This is a great hike, you can stay left and go to ancient lake or take the right trail and head to dusty lake. Lots of snakes, lots of horseback riders, but when summer comes it's too hot for most people. Overall, one of our favorite hikes. Although, would have never found the area without meeting someone who was willing to take us, there are no signs letting you know where to go.
