Wonderful place to go on a backpacking trip. If you're smart enough to not destroy the environment and leave no trace (very fragile environment up there). The reward is worth the drive and the trouble. Highly recommend for backpacking!

Great views! Love being able to take the dogs up with me.

Tried to 4x4 up the road, had to stop, and hike the rest. It was absolutely beautiful.

Beautiful hike! My dog and I made it up to Snow Lake and the view down to the American Lakes is absolutely breathtaking. About 8.5 roundtrip if you include Snow Lake. It is pretty tough to get up to that lake.

First time hiker and was really proud of myself for finishing this. Went a little late in the season (late October) and there was a little snow on the ground that made things more difficult than they should have been. This is definitely back woods hiking and worth every step. We did lose the trail and ended up walking across the south side of the stream. Took us 4 hours at a very leisurely pace :) We will do this again and cross over Thunder Pass into Rocky Mountain National Park next time.

Really incredible hike. I wouldn't rate it a hard personally. Did it in 2hr40 and I'm not super fast/in shape. Leisurely about 3hr30 - 4hr round trip. Definitely worth the drive from foco

Great hike. You can continue past the mediocre lakes to thunder pass or even summit the nearby peaks.

Our 1st mountain hike, trail well maintained & outstanding views!!

favorite ohv trail,watch out for oil pan rock

Great hike with beautiful views and wildflowers along the path. We saw a herd of sheep and lots of chipmunks. The last part of the hike is steep, but manageable. There was a problem with the location where the alltrails app placed the trailhead- it showed as just short of the peak.
