I couldn't find this trail but I found one of them that are on the same group. Definitely need mosquito spray. After I buy me some mosquito spray going to go back and explore some more over there

Love the lakes up here. Good workout, mosquito spray is a must for summer months.

Very few people, usually. Some difficult ups and downs. Scenic lakes. Take the bug spray if you are hiking along the creek section late in the afternoon. Overall, one of the best hikes in Mountain Lakes Wilderness.

Lake como and lake harriot are amazing! Lake harriot is an alpine lake gem! The water is so clear and it's very peaceful here! There was a lot of Mosquitos though!!!

Hiked 10/24-10/25 and took me two days to hike the Varney Trail and Mountain Lakes Loop Trail going clockwise. Bring water and blankets this time of year. I didn't bring enough and I froze.
