We love this hike! It's strenuous but has a very high return on investment with incredible views. If you are able to scrabble on shale and climb over a 4-5 ft ledge in the chimney to get to the very top, it's totally worth it. Its truly the feeling of standing on top of the world. Oh, and for only-average experienced hikers like us, there was this great gasp-and-moment-of-fear scrabbling over the chimney as we looked at the shale coved ledge we could slide off. It turned out to be a huge confidence builder as we realized after, it was no big deal.

Sketchy in some spots but a lot of fun! 4x4 a must!

Beautiful trail. Was definitely worth the effort. Probably the most beautiful trail I've ever done. We also hiked to Island lake which was also amazing. If you hike to Island Lake be prepared for a tough hike, was a bit dangerous in a few spots. My wife and I hiked around the whole lake, even though there is no trail around Island lake. Will try to hike to Fuller Lake next time around.

Amazing !! So worth it

Hard as a motha', but worth it in the end.

This was such a beautiful hike. There were flowing streams, crisp waterfalls, and steep terrain. I do think that the distance is off. I wore a tracker and we had traveled 2.7 miles by the time we arrived to the first lake, which is not the beautiful blue lakes. Then we trekked another 1.5 miles to get to the coral blue lake and there were more beyond that. So the hike out took almost 3 hours, with a snack break. The hike back took 2hours .

This is my favorite hike yet. Absolutely stunning. Very hard but worth every step. Definitely visit Island Lake as well.

Way harder than other "moderate" hikes we've done but it was a great hike!

Beautiful trail but very hard. Elevation gain and high altitude make it a challenge. Pack weight was around 55lbs.
