This trail is very pretty. It takes about 45 min on dirt road to reach trail head which is very narrow at times. Only passed 4 cars in and out. On trail, completed on Friday, I saw noone on trail. I only did first lake because trail muddy and wet near lake. Nice big rocks to picnic on. I recommend if looking for solitude.

Rating was a 3.5 star. First of all, the total distance from the trail head to the lakes is 6.5 miles (according to our GPS). The trail head sign says 7. So the total mileage of this trail is not 11.8 like the guide says, its approx. 14 miles. The first half of the trail was awesome. It consisted of fresh vistas, clear mountain springs, and cool water crossings. The guide is correct in saying that wet feet are unavoidable (knee high in some places). The trail had a lovely gentle decent and was well kept. The second half of the trail (everything past the fork) was a bit less kept up, contained rotten bridges and a few mud bogs. Also the vegetation is slightly overgrowing the trail in some spots but it is still very navigable. It is also much steeper then the first half but definitely not unbearable. The lower lake is gorgeous and we found a great little camp site on the SW side with a fresh spring about thirty feet away. The mosquitoes weren't very bad either. (We did the trip the first of July). We could also see Graves Point from our camp spot. The upper lake was also beautiful. We just did a quick hike up from the lower lake, it wasn't very far. The round trip from the upper lake to the lower with a little sightseeing to the a little waterfall on the south of the lake took about an hour. Overall we enjoyed out trip except for the extra few miles which we weren't expecting (since we were packing our little 11 month old along). This was a great trail which we would do again. (Chaco sandals are definitely recommended).
