good trail, still some large patches of snow at the top, some postholing but generally manageable. completed the loop in approx 3 hrs

Just ok!

Very good!!!

Even if you just make to the pass the views are incredible. Made the summit last year but went May 5th this year and sank into 2 meter drifts after the pass. Mid June should be good.

Did it May 21. Total lung buster but views are incredible. There is snow on the ridge, deep in some places but we did it without major difficulty just really wet socks. Bring gators. We did the loop descending into the valley and exiting via King Creek. The valley trail is damaged and often disappears. I lost count how many times we had to cross over King creek since the water level is a bit high. Took us just over 5 hours to do the loop.

May 25th no snow on the trail just some on the ridge. if you don't want the mild scramble follow the trail on the right next to the creek. Walk around/under the butte by crossing the scree/dirt slope. Once crossed turn left and walk up the grassy slope. It's a short but pretty steep walk up. Enjoy lunch on the picnic table provided.

busy trail up to the upper falls (about half way through). after upper falls, it was a pretty boring 2 miles in the trail until you reach the inkpots. the inkpots are unique and set in the middle of a gorgeous expansive valley.

Challenging but so rewarding

We absolutely loved it! The scrambles were a bit tricky in places but views were phenomenal!

Great view at the top! Lots of switchbacks

it's a bit of a scramble, no snow in the way now but would definitely recommend walking sticks as well. great hike!

Great summit-bagging warm-up hike. Hiked with a newbie, 3 hours and 30 minutes up and down. Beautiful day! Trail is definitely getting wider since the last time I hiked it before the floods.

Fun hike, nice view.

Did this morning with wife and dog. It’s a steady climb but not that difficult. Good workout on the legs. Loved the view.

Great and short hike to start off the day.sadly we did not see any moose but we met someone who did. You should do the hike early

Stunning views at the top once you put the effort in to reach it. Totally Worth it. You should start early as it gets busy in the day

You should defenetly start out early as it gets very busy during the day. Great and rewarding hike.

Quite intense incline but totally worth it when you see the views.

What a wonderful hike. Defenetly bring your swimming stuff as the lakes are just incredible and just beg for a swim. We did the hike on a very warm and sunny day in May. The trail itself was in a very good condition.

Excellent hike with waterfalls, mountain views and the ink pots. Trail is already in good shape. Get out early to stay ahead of the crowds. They thin out after the upper falls.

Great hike with kids and dog.

Absolutely beautiful views at the top, still snow in some spots. went a bit further along the ridge past the summit, totally worth it to go the little bit extra! Hiked May 21/18

The trail has a good balance of everything. It’s pretty steep all the way up but not so steep as to make it unenjoyable. You start off in trees and make it up to a rocky ridge. Then hike back down into a valley with trees where the lake is. We went in mid May and the lake was still pretty much frozen solid so we couldn’t fish. Great overall day hike me and my buddies made it up and down in exactly 3 hours with 5 pound day packs.
