Beautiful hike, fairly easy with a gentle incline. We hiked it Oct 19, 2018 and wished we had brought our spikes, but managed without too much problem to the lakes. We decided not to tackle the summit due to the snow but will definitely return for an overnight this summer. Gorgeous views throughout and very easy to follow trail. The road getting there is pretty rough, especially the last 5k or so. I have a Mitsubishi Outlander 4x4 and it was fine, but I wish I had brought my husband's Tacoma. I'm surprised this hike is rated difficult as we found it pretty moderate. This is a great hike to take more novice beginner types as it's fairly short, 4k to the lakes, not overly difficult, and has stunning scenery and views. The lake was frozen over so we didn't get the lovely Instagram blue water pics, but still a great day out in the Backcountry!! We were also surprised to see two other groups up there with it being so late in the season, but it was a gorgeous sunny day. I can only imagine how busy it must be in the summer!
