This hike was amaze-inggg! It was a little harder than I thought it would be, but that might be because I went in the afternoon on a hot day. I loved the views, the water crossing and the lake at the end (definitely went swimming). I took my dog and his feet got hot in the darker dust, we had to take a lot of breaks and I carried him for a bit. I keep dreaming about it and plan to do it again!

fun hike, gorgeous lake and pretty flowers

pretty lake!!

Fantastic hike, well worth the effort to get there. Took my 2 kids (10 & 14) and though they were tired going up, the lake was their favorite! Would definitely do this hike again. Make sure you bring 3+ liters of water! So many people on the trail today ran out while still high up. One gentleman was completely out of water on the upper switchbacks and nearly fell off a steep incline right in front of us! We were able to grab him in time, sit him down, give him some water, electrolytes and a fruit bar, and he was apparently okay, but they had no food and he looked to be in serious shock. Though a relatively short hike, it’s hot and strenuous at times. Loved it!

I love this hike. So beautiful and a great escape from the heat. Amazing views and the best reward; silver lake.

Got an early start to this hike (around 7-8) and it was a little chilly. The first 1/3 of the hike is in a beautiful aspen forest. Couldn’t get enough of the foliage! The hike then opens up and you’re able to see some beautiful views of the back of timpanogos. After a short steep section to the top, we were rewarded with a view of the amazing lake. It was around 9 at that point but the lake was warm enough that I took a quick swim. Beautiful clear lake! As we descended it got really crowded so I suggest if you want to have this lake to yourself come early.
All in all one of my favorite hikes out there.

Wonderful trail! The lake is crystal-clear. If you want to avoid crowds, go early in the morning.

One of my favorites.

awesome

Great hike! Be sure to bring lots of water, and if you're going to bring your dog, pack them lots of water too if it's hot. About half way up the tree cover is very sparse and it can get hot in the summer.

Amazing hike! This is definitely one of our favorite.

Hiked this last weekend and it was hot! After the first 1/4 mile, the trail is pretty exposed so try to hike early! The dirt road to get to the parking lot is pretty rough if you have a passenger car. The hike itself is fairly easy.. however, if you choose to hike up to silver glance lake from silver lake.. it climbs 800 feet in 3/4 of a mile so it does take it out of you! Otherwise very pretty and a lot of places to relax around the lake.

This trail was super steep. I think based on other trails around here, I’m feeling like this should be rated hard. Beautiful views and awesome lakes!

Beautiful hike that gets surprisingly hard towards the top. Just be prepared it gets steep the last .5 Miles. Just for that I think it may deserve a Hard rating. The rest is Moderate and pretty shaded overall.

Well... we went to hike Lackawaxen but not too far into the hike we came upon a lake. It was Blood Lake. I get my trusty Alltrails trail out and see we arent even on the right trail. However, this became a lovely loop to Lackawaxen. For 1 the Lackawaxen trail is STEEP at the beginning. My knees were killing me coming down it so depending which way you would rather do the loop think of those things. If you want to go up the steep part take the trail to the right that goes up a steep incline if you want to sneak up on Lackawaxen from Blood Lake take the flat trail to the left. Once at Blood Lake keep following the lake around and you will see a trail heading up. Take that up and you will come to a clearing and pass under power lines. Keep following that trail to Lackawaxen. If you see boulders you cross them and the lake is a stones throw away. I am glad we went the wrong way mostly because the beginning is steep and 2 the views! Yeah you get the views coming up but some of the best ones will be at your back. If you come up this way be sure to stop a lot and turn around.

There were some steep, loose areas that made it pretty challenging with a toddler in my carrier, but the breeze, some shade, and little traffic made it a wonderful Sunday. The wildflowers were bright, and the lake offered a great resting place. We wrapped around to Blood Lake, which was booming with people.

Went on this hike during heat of the day. Thankfully there are water crossings about 5 times spread out along the hike so the pup could take a cold sip and dip. The views are incredible.

Very beautiful hike with amazing views of the many trees and surrounding mountains this time of year. Also, the lake at the end is very rewarding. Pace yourself, bring plenty of water and maybe some snacks. Overall a very pleasant hike.

Beautiful lake, totally worth it. Bring plenty of water and make sure you have some time to hang out at the top.

For the $8 entry fee into Kodachrome, this park might be one of the best value stops in the area! We started the long loop around noon on a very warm and sunny day; as we started out, my group had some regrets about not starting earlier because it is very exposed and very warm, but as indicated by the materials provided at the visitors' center...if you don't like the weather, wait five minutes! We experienced full sun, cloud cover, wind, rain, thunder/lightning during our 2.5 hour hike. Highly recommend sunscreen, a hat, and plenty of water! The Cool Cave at the halfway point is a serene, crisp and cool reward for sweating out the first three miles. It's no Bryce Canyon, but this less-traveled trail would be great for all levels of physical fitness and families; plan on picking up a lot of red dust! Also, up the road there is an awesome and extremely well-tended laundromat and restrooms to clean up and regroup after your hike!

I love this hike but I find it’s most beautiful near fall or when snow is out. The water turns a deep teal color and there’s hardly anyone out! Good amount of challenge, most of it being in the last half mile.

Steep and hard with a backpack, but gorgeous and super worth it.

Definitely on the harder side and it was swarming with mosquitoes but the views were incredible.

Great hike, mostly in the shade.

2 hours up/1 hour 20 min down with 3 kids (10, 8 and 5.) Your young kids will likely need a pack or be carried some part of the way! (We saw it and experienced it ;). It is steep up with lots of elevation gain. We started at 2:30pm, 95 degree Summer day... it was HOT (yeah, not so ideal). We went through a ton of water. The way down was so much more pleasant with cooler air!! Very beautiful hike though with a fun lake as the end destination. We fished. Many people were swimming, taking a dip and even brought floaties to lounge on the lake during this hot Summer day.

Absolutely loved this hike!!! There were very few hikers at the top and I wish I could have stayed for hours. The mountains were reflective onto the lake. It was absolutely beautiful. Fairly easy hike that took about an hour to go up!

It takes a while to get to starting point (you have to drive 3 miles on a really bumpy dirt road), after you park your car, the journey begins...It took us about an hour to get up to the pretty lake and you get very nice views in your way up. You’ll see a lot of doggies along the trail; it is shady at the beginning and then is very exposed to sunshine, make sure you apply sunscreen and bring enough water. Well worth doing it!!!

Great hike!

Great views and nature, not too crowded so that is always a bonus.
