Never made it to the top, snow got too deep! Very beautiful hike! Pretty strenuous. Steep switchbacks.

Pretty challenging trail. There was so much snow near the top that we lost the trail.

Amazing! 14 switchbacks, well maintained trail. Waterfalls, boulders, old growth forest. Outstanding views!!

We've hiked this twice. Enjoyed it both times. We didn't find it overly difficult to navigate. Might want to reconsider a name change to Lake of the Goats. The goats are a bit possessive about their little bit of land.

Great little hike even in the snow!

Amazing hike! Beautiful views in fall of mountain peaks across the valley close to the lake. Mountain blueberries too! I'm very glad I wore my proper hiking shoes and packed a lunch. A personal achievement for sure!

Did the lower trail in nice time, the view from the lake makes it a nice sight after the 3.2 mile hike bring ok shoes cause it gets Rocky

This trail was absolutely stunning. I'm very much used to a drier climate being from Utah, so it was a pleasant and refreshing change from the norm of desert landscapes. We went in mid-November, and it was a clear day for the most part, but clouds would periodically pass overhead, and it drizzled on us several times. But we never got soaked. However, the air itself was very wet, and even though it was in the low 50s, by the end of the hike it had chilled me through to the bone. So be sure to dress appropriately depending on the forecast. Also, we had a fairly difficult time locating the trail head, as this NP does not have a park entrance (that we could see) or any park rangers. You do need to pay a fee to park at the limited space lot, which we were at the TOP lot (mid-trail). There is also a lower lot about 1 or 2 miles down. So make sure you take a map in case you have trouble locating it. We never made it all the way to the top, as we wanted to beat the setting sun. But the higher up we got, the more incredible the views. We definitely plan to do this trail again someday, from the lower lot. We will also give ourselves more time, because I stopped at nearly every view point to take pictures lol. Incredible place for sure!

Hiked in late November, trail conditions are still great. Nothing challenging, beautiful up at lower Lena. No snow at Lower Lena, but the snow line starts on the way up to Upper Lena. Road to the trailhead is paved and perfect. Bathrooms are closed up at the lake though~

was great, aside from low visibility, rain and wind. just didn't get lucky with the weather but loved it anyway

Beautiful views the whole way up! Snowy peaks at the summit looks like a postcard. Def worth the hike!

Great trail, well maintained. A definite climb. We didn't make it the last pitch because of rain, but will return.
