Really enjoyable hike with some beautiful views. The trail has some marked signs, but no sign on the road so it is difficult to find at first. Go west 1.6 km from the Sandy McNabb recreation area and you'll see a pull out area on the right for you to park. The trial starts off from there.

I took my kids here, great trail well kept!

Definitely take some water and snacks along.

Steep climb most of the way, great views and a bit of route finding to navigate a few areas

The tea house is a must!!! Sometimes you'll hear the rumble of the avalanche.

Quite steep and was definitely difficult for a beginner like myself, but after the steep part the incline becomes steady. The view at the top is definitely worth it.

The hardest hike I have done this year. Gentle start through Larch Valley, climb the switch backs to Sentinel Pass. Then the real climb begins, not too technical. the crux wasn't bad to get past. 11,000 feet at the summit and my legs felt it. Hard workout on the quads coming down. Views at the top were amazing even with the wildfire smoke in the area. Busy trail (probably 20-30 people at the summit on the day we climbed).

Get out there early, and you'll miss most of the crowds, especially if you keep heading up to Little Beehive.

Awesome day! Easy but long hike.

We were a little in over our heads when we did this hike. We didn't know what to expect, and definitely felt like we bit off more than we could chew. But the views at the top made it all worth it.

It was a gorgeous day, with a slight breeze and cooler temperatures. No wildlife, but we had the lake to ourselves as we walked around it.

I loved doing this trail!!! I'm pretty much inexperienced with long hikes like this but it's definitely doable. Had to stop and take a breather a few times, but only took me 2 hours to get to the lake. About 1 hour to get back down.
