Excellent way to start the day! Love the terrain.

Was up there last Saturday and had some light dusting of snow. The fall colors were out and what an awesome trail and time..

Pretty but VERY crowded

We did this hike in early September as part of our trip to the pass. All of the lakes offer nice shade, pretty views and peaceful surroundings! I highly recommend continuing to Kearsarge Pass after taking a snack break at this lake!
We didnt run into too many bugs, but I imagine mosquitos can be bad at certain times of year, or even day. There was sporadic shade on the way up but nice trees offering quality shade around all the lakes.

The wait time to the shuttle was around 20mins and its awesome, the shuttle stops and many places and you can start your hikes, if you dont have time and just wanna see few viewing points this shuttle is the best way.

Fun little loop, saw some tarantulas!

Had a blast on this trail even though was 1 mile it was a little difficult as far as directions. you just have to stay on the pass and trust your judgment and you should be fine

Don’t know what we did wrong, but on this seemingly simple loop we got quite twisted, frustrated, and confused. Gorgeous views and nice signage (for the first half of the trail). Had a blast on the rocks.

Great National Park.

Beautiful and easy hike. Divers vegetations.

great hike and excellent fishing. snow in the spring and multple water falls.

I hiked only portions of this, rather than the entire trail because I was deviating to other trails on the same trip. The miles of this trail I hiked had me pass Emerald Pools, which was lovely. I also thought the view was incredible once you pass Emerald Pools, where I was looking down, through the valley.

Decent amount of parking. Was warm but not too hot. Trails aren't marked too well but is easy to follow. A few spots to fill up on water on the way up. Lots of amazing views all around.

Beautiful easy hike in a valley full of rocks to be climbed!

Great time here! My buddy and I both have completely stock vehicles(posted) he has a 2010 FJ Cruiser and myself a 2018 Rubicon JLU. Are only limit was climbing a steep hill with loose dirt. You will need to get off the main trail (Red Canyon Rd) to find some really fun and difficult paths.

A rock scrambler's dream! So many rocks to climb along the entire loop...a ton of fun! The loop itself is not that amazing...pretty, but you follow a short path. Get off the trail and enjoy this wonderland.

We forgot to record the entire drive, but we started at the toll booths in Springdale and went all the way to the eastern edge of the park (one way). One worry I had was would our Volvo with bikes mounted on top be OK to go through the tunnels, and they were. Do keep in mind that the tunnels have a height restriction and bigger vehicles like buses or RVs may need an escort. The escort may cost extra, but otherwise there are no additional charges to go through the tunnel (without escorts). We did not do any hiking, but did stop at a few viewpoints to soak in the scenery, so we were in the park about 3 hours. It was a beautiful day and not too many people. As it had rained earlier in the week (with flash floods and rock slides), we think many may have avoided the park today (July 14). But as all of the roads were open, we had a pleasant drive through. Hope to come back again for some hikes!

I saw a sign with madlock on it but no flower lake sign. It was a moderate but beautiful hike for me

nice drive

This is truly a gorgeous area. We came here for sunset over Memorial Day weekend, not planning to walk this trail, but we hiked it in the dark and it was still awesome. This is a great spot to see the moon rise. I’ll have to come back in the daytime. :)

Great hike up to Flower Lake, patches of snow on the hills, but trails and campsites are clear. A bit cold at night, no bugs. Saturday night there were a handful of campers but Sunday night had the place to myself. Take a left when you hit the lake and find more secluded campsites on the hill. The lake is clear and green, you can watch the trout swim past your line. I day hiked up to Kearsarge Pass. Fill up on water before you go, it's not as plentiful as you climb. It's also very exposed, a challenging but doable climb. From the top you can dip into the valley below and camp at the Kearsarge Lakes or push on to Charlotte Lake or up to Rae Lakes, both are supposed to be gorgeous.

This was a very fun, scenic trail. Many great views, rock climbing, and very active during the weekend.

One of my favorite hikes I did in this area (probably nr.1). It is definitely moderate to strenuous (I hike quite a bit) so be prepared for a steep hike. The gate was closed, so we had to park our car further down the street - which added an extra 2 miles one way to our hike. You can go higher up if you feel like it once you reach Flower like (which is the third lake. The first one is very small, the second one is also beautiful). When we went, in late April, the lakes were still frozen. There were some patches of snow along the way but no need for snowshoes if you only go up to Flower lake. You can go further if you want but would not recommend this time of the year without some experience and the proper gear.

There is lots of space around the lakes to camp at night if you feel like it. Will definitely do this hike again. I loved the views along the way and the frozen lake with the massive mountains in the back as a reward at the top are just majestic.

Cute small walk

The rocks on this trail are interesting. It took us less than one hour.

quick and easy, beautiful vegetation to look at.

Stunning views, a bit crowded, but worth it.
