Was a nice hike. A bit longer than the markers say - likely closer to 6mi round trip. Hiked it on a hot humid buggy day. There are areas of climbing interspersed with some areas of flat walking on a wider trail. Nice views.

Longer than listed. At least 3mi one way. Very buggy. Great views!

I believe it to be longer than listed, trails are well marked though.

Little difficult for the inexperienced. Decent views of the lake. Better views of the mountains.

Nice easy trail completed on a beautiful day. The views are amazing. It was longer than stated above, I recorded my trip on the trail and it was 6.6 miles round trip.

Did Fifth Peak today on a brisk snow flurry day ... if your reasonably in shape you the handful of ascents will have you break a sweat but not overwhelm you. By the time I got to the lean to it the snow picked up and wind blowing it sideways. Very nice hike with varying terrain. Need to go back on a sunny day

Great hike. It's a little further north on 9N than the directions on here. Go in by the sign that says Clay Meadows Trail. The trail is well marked but definite longer than 5.4 miles, I had it around 7. Overall amazing hike, I'll be going again.
