I have hiked this trail many times, but never this late in the season. We were wet and cold but saw many mushrooms and much water on the trail, one "pond" of significance. We went on a Saturday and only saw one other party. It took us a little over 2 hours each way.

Truly something else during the fall. Well worth the effort.

hard trip and the long way to the core zone...we will go through colchuck next time....but a great trip!

Great trail with awesome views, even in the rain. Beautiful hike!

Did this trail with my wife and friends Friday 10/7/2016 as a opening to our adventure to oktoberfest. This was the hardest trail I've done so far but the most rewarding. I've never seen so much beauty personally in one hike. It made how hard it was all worth it. We didn't plan accordingly with food so we were definitely hungry. It took us 3hrs and 10 mins up (stopping for pictures) and 2hrs to get down. 120% worth it all

Beautiful fall colors.

Awesome for a late afternoon hike! Took maybe two hours! Beautiful scenery!

Easy paved trail ending with a stunning lake view. Great place to get out and stretch your legs if you've been driving on 20 for the day. Hiked in Oct. and the colors were beautiful. Saw lots of chipmunks, squirrels, and a field mouse on our walk.

This trail is superrrrr hard to find but worth the search. I went and saw not a single sole. Me and my dog had the whole trail to ourselves. About half of the trail is overgrown so you can't be afraid of to almost bush whack your way to the lakes. There is also not a very good spot to go swimming on either lake. This hike is hard... A lot harder than what I thought.

Beautiful hike! Mossy trees, ferns, view of the creek from high and at level, with a fantastic view on a bridge where you can feel the mist. A must do if you are in the area!!!

So, this is steep and the trail is narrow...with some areas that have drop offs. If you are afraid of heights, hike with extreme caution. Beautiful views of Leavenworth and the Enchantments.
