Beautiful hike with spectacular views a number of options to create a nice loop or connect to other trailers. Morris meadow is a beautiful walk to the higher elevations with the anticipation of high alpine beauty this will inspire you with amazing lupus fields scattered with a variety of incredible wild flowers. It's a moderate hike go enjoy the beauty!!!!

Great trail with a lot of options--Horseshoe lake is where this trail ends, but you can access Granite Lake Trail, Bear Basin Trail or 4-Lakes Loop easily (among others).

Easy hike as far as Mumford Meadows, then trail steepens. We camped at ward lake & had beautiful sunrise & sunsets. Day-hiked down a SteepWard Lake trail continuation the next day, & to awesome Horseshoe Lake, cold for swimming, but refreshing! and surrounded by granite.
