Wish the trail had more markers, as it got a bit confusing at times. There are definitely some steep parts that were difficult, but I made it to the lower lake carrying my baby in a carrier and using hiking poles.

Beautiful hike. Saw mountain goats and a moose! Worth the strenuous scramble at the top. Favorite hike out here so far.

Hiked it on 9/12 and it was awesome. Started out at Spruce Creek Trailhead and went up to the lower lake. The first 2 miles or so is pretty easy, but very peaceful through the woods. The last mile up to the lower lake gets a little tough, but not too bad. Overall a fun and beautiful hike...but do advise being in fairly good shape for that last mile...don't need to be an expert hiker by any means, but do need some stamina...especially if starting from Spruce Creek Trailhead.

A popular, easily accessible, gorgeous views and very dog friendly hike. Only the last mile is challenging if you're otherwise ok with high altitudes. You can hear the river pretty much the entire hike. Saw many good camping spots. We hiked past the second last lake to the summit (a fun, steep scramble) and saw mountain goats at the top!

Loved this hike so much! Amazing views! Last mile or so was most strenuous part, but mostly moderate! Definitely do the extra .5 to the upper lake, stunning!

Loved this hike! It starts out easy/moderate with some great views then towards the 3-4th miles really gets intense and fun! Awesome waterfall and scenic views. The trail gets a little confusing at the top but if you follow the waterfall you'll eventually get there.

Such a beautiful hike! Up to Spruce Creek was pretty easy - 1st mile and a half or so, and then it got challenging. The upper lake and the 3rd one that is a little farther were so worth the extra effort.

Beautiful hike, definitely hike up to the unnamed lake in the high meadow. Was one of my favorite hikes this year. Longer than 9 miles.
