I did this hike back in 2015 and it was and still is my favorite hike if all time. The route we took was closer to 8.1 miles round trip. There’s four parts: Titou Gorge to breakfast river, then onto valley of desolation, then to the lake. The hike is challenging and you go over a variety of terrain.
It’s helpful to have a local show you the way and the many great stops along the way: natural hot springs, valley of desolation, and more. Also it is a challenging hike with some severe drop offs, small river crossings and other challenges that a local can help you navigate. Do yourself a favor and hire a local guide on this one. We went with Marvin and it was epic! Jumped in Titou Gorge as a final finish (again, a local has to show you where to jump to avoid the rocks). Loved it.
