(10/29/16) We were lucky that the sun came out during the hike, some clouds and rain at the start. The trail was very easy to follow and only had a few snowy spots. The lake was beautiful, but find a place out of the wind to enjoy it.

Beautiful hike with not too much elevation gain. Lake was surrounded by rocky peaks. Great views of the Gore Range along the way.

Beautiful hike and not overly difficult! You'll arrive at the lake via Fall Creek Trail, about 3.5 miles from the trailhead. We camped along Notch Mountain Creek road the night before, tons of really good sites to choose from. This road is pretty rough, so if you have a small car I would not recommend. Lots of great views among the way.

This trail was great. We hiked from fall crack trailhead tonLake Constantine in about 3 1/2 hrs. Keep in mind we had 40-50lb backpacks on too so if you are day hiking it will be quicker. The trail is fairly easy. It does have some decent inclines going in, and then steadily drops into the lake. We camped at lake Constantine for 3 nights. This place
Is pretty popular for backpackers, but trust me, there's plenty of camping spots and you will still feel isolated. We day hikes up to Lower Tuhare lake. This was pretty difficult as it's only a
Mile or so, but it's over 1000 vertical ft, so it's pretty steep. Class 3 I believe. I would highly recommend this area!! Loved it and would go back.

This made an awesome base camp for the hike up to the Tuhare Lakes. Highly recommended.
