Good exercise.
There are days that it gets crowded, but it's fun seeing the Y on top.

It's a workout and hike for kids.

I hike it every Sunday for my work out routine.
The views are beautiful of the city.

Gorgeous hike, but definitely should be done earlier in the day. I started around 9, got up to the top in about 2.5 hours, and when i came down, the trail was almost entirely exposed. Save yourself from the crowds and the heat and leave earlier with plenty of water. Views from the top and coming down are definitely worth the steep and long trek up, though. Lake Blanche and Sundial Peak in the distance are beautiful.

Holy incline! We did the hike in 90+degree weather! The trail is mostly open, but becomes rocky the last 30 minutes. Take time to sit and enjoy yourself when you reach the top it is gorgeous! We had a good pace and the hike took 3 hours plus time eating lunch.

Go early if you can. The trail was busy and quite a few kids.

My wife and I did the trail with our 8 and 10 year old and my mother in law. We hiked from the lower parking lot at Alta's base up through the lower meadows and joined the trail at the upper parking lot. The ~3 mile hike up took us just over an hour and a half with lots of stops.

The trail was fairly busy compared to previous times we have hiked this trail due to a holiday weekend.

Such a cool trail. Completely shaded and although it was a tad steep with switchbacks, it was still very doable. We had our three young kids with us and they did awesome as well. But we only made it 30 minutes in before turning around. Can't wait to do it again. My husband bikes this trail all the time...it's one of his favorites.

I would say this was easier than moderate. My 7 and 4 year old boys did it without trouble as it was less than a mile round trip. They loved climbing the rocks at the end and thought the rock art was cool. Such a great little hike with a great reward at the end!

I loved this hike but it definitely isn't an easy stroll in the park. Once you take the last fork (over the footbridge where the trail splits from the Red Pine Lake trail) it's pretty steep most of the way. But it's beautiful with wildflowers all around. I saw a couple of people coming down as I went up but I didn't see another soul while I was at the lakes and what a beautiful setting! They are situated in Maybird Gulch with the Pfiefferhorn looming over head to the east. The lakes are mostly surrounded by boulder fields. It took some scrambling over those giant boulders to get a good look at the lake to the south which as a little island in it with pines growing there.

My GPS app I use when I hike said this hike was 8 miles (but that did include me wandering around the lakes a bit).
