The first 2 miles are direct, and the final has rock blasted switchbacks to the top of the ridge. Pay attention to signs, because you need to branch right off the trail about 2 miles in. Enjoy the hike.
The trail had running water from the small creeks at many points. Would recommend wearing some waterproof shoes. The hike was rewarding. The colors were good. No snow and bugs.
Fun hike. Did it on a Friday so crowds were not too bad. Definitely worth the extra effort to head up to Gem lake. A swim in Snow Lake was cold but refreshing on the way back down.
Great hike with a beautiful view. Lots dogs on the trail with NO leashes.
Beautiful hike! Even in the poring rain. Not many people on a wet Monday morning! Defiantly a little rocky but not a terribly tough hike.
High payoff for the effort expended. But crowded. Snow Lake is spectacular. Be sure to hike down around the lake instead of stopping at the top. Many well positioned rock slab overlooks for lunching.
It was such a great and pretty hike. It's a lot more rocky then I expected so my dog didn't like it much. He has lots of energy and hikes a lot but doesn't like hiking in a lot of rocks.
it was a pretty good hike. We went to Gem Lake thru Snow Lake. Both the lakes are gorgeous. Saw lot of people camping out there. Roundtree about 10 miles.
As with all trails in this area get there early. Took us an hour to get to the rim to head down to the lake. There are lots of rocks. When you get to the rim if you go left a few yards there is a cool rock you can sit on with a beautiful view.
The hike was a great workout. Not very long just about 7 miles. I definitely should have worn hiking boots due to the rocks and boulders. The end result was amazing. Beautiful lake and mountain views. Not too many bugs.
Great day hi.ke! Lots of people on the trail but even so the views were awesome! Be careful on the rocks twisted ankles are not the way to end a great hike!
Way too many people for such a narrow trail. Lake was okay, but only after moving pass some of the crowds.
Pristine, beautiful lake at the end. Very rocky trails were unpleasant at times.
This was a great hike with a amazing view! So fun but busy!
