This hike was awesome! Hiked it yesterday with my wife, our two seven year old boys, our 3 year old daughter and my Mom. Lots of great lookout points along the way. First 1.5mi is gentle, then fairly steep with boulders and roots to climb over. Seen a baby male mountain goat near the top. Also watched people cliff jumping into Colchuck, and from the sounds they were making I could tell the water was cold!! Trail was crowded, but people were very friendly. I was very impressed at not seeing a single piece of trash the entire hike. This hike is a must do!

We hiked this with our 5 children, the smallest hiker was 4. It had snowed the night before so the top of the mountain and the pass were all pristine for viewing and photos. We didn't get to the lake, as the snow and footing was getting worse as we hiked through the boulder field/rockslide at around the 4mile point. However, it was still an awesome hike with lots to see and the glacier getting closer and closer.

Love this hike, but the tags say "mountain biking" and trust me, you absolutely cannot mountain bike this unless you are a professional, lots of extreme terrain for bikes, but fun times for hikers.

Wow! What an amazing hike, despite the mosquito's, and biting flies. Bring a lot of water and food you will need it. The gradual incline makes it nice, and not grueling. There are quite a number of view points for photo opps. It is nice trail, but starts to get rockier and more roots after the junction. There is only one very sketchy bridge crossing, just be careful as you're stepping down off the foot bridge. The last mile is a lot of stepping up and over rocks and can be strenuous to difficult, I found it to be moderate to strenuous but very doable. The lake is well worth the sweat in the end. Dogs are not allowed on this trail. However we saw 1 small dog. On our way back down there were at least 20 backpackers that passed us, not to mention the 5 or 6 that had already set up camp while we were there. I gave it 5 stars because of the amazing lake.

Fun easy hike. Beautiful all the way up. Steepest climb out of trailhead then a nice steady ascent all the way to lake. Had a one snd a half year old on my back and a five months pregnant wife. We all enjoyed ourselves.

I like this hike. This was my second time and I did it with a 5 year old granddaughter. She did very well and only asked me once if I would carry her.

Nice gentle walk along the river with great views. We used this path to walk from our hotel to downtown Leavenworth during Maifest.
