Really enjoyed this hike, steep incline at the beginning got the blood pumping (in not in tip top shape) and the views at the lake are fantastic. Did the hike twice and successfully fished for cutthroat trout each time. Grizzly activity on the west ridge above the lake.
Great hike, the falls were just starting to melt, the ink pots were very interesting. Seeing the spring bubbling up through the sand at the bottom of the ponds was pretty cool.
Went April 20 crampons definitely made the hike enjoyable. Saw lots of people struggling in running shoes.
April 19,2017. Trail is dry for the most part but there are quite a few mud, snow and ice patches. We could bypass most of it and my mom used her hiking poles. Crocuses are blooming at the lookout and all in all It was the perfect hike, with a dog within 30 minutes of the city. Can't wait to go back with our kids!
