BackpackingGreat!Off trailScramble

This is a great hike. We lost the trail the last mile or two and basically had to climb up a steep rocky dry riverbed/water fall to get up to the lake, but man is it worth it! Such an amazing lake with wonderful mountain view’s and look outs. I would rate this hike as moderate to difficult for sure.

Great hike. A lot of spots along the creek to stop and rest. A little muddy on the back half. Also it is easy to get off trail on the back half.

Very steep to start so pace yourself. But the destination was worth it. Loved it.

This trail is rated as mediocre.. LOL I’d rate this as difficult. It says 4.6 miles for the loop. We ended up hiking 11.5 miles around the loop back to the car. Holy crap... It sure was indescribable!! Absolutely breathtaking! Not for the faint of heart!

Had a great time. The trail is rocky in places and as others have mentioned the end is a bit tricky. I highly recommend downloading the map. I found myself off trail a few times and it definitely helped me to get back on track. You will be getting muddy in places and I recommend a walking stick too.

HikingFloodedMuddyScrambleWashed out

Loved the trail and the views it offered, but as others have mentioned the last bit of it is super hard to follow. lots of mud pits and fallen trees. my dog and i were able to get through most of the rough part (last mile or two), but got stuck JUST before the end because we truly couldn’t find the rest of the trail and i didn’t want to risk an injury while hiking alone. just a heads up! I still thoroughly enjoyed the hike and my dog did too, mud and all!

We did a loop. Took the right hand trail up to Norton lakes. Visited the upper lake then went back to the lower lake. Climbed the scree field at the upper end of the lake, over the saddle to Big Lost lake. Continued down the trail to Smoky Lake. Followed the trail down and eventually reconnected with the original trail we began on. A nice loop. Pretty demanding because it's mostly either steep up or steep down. But four lakes in 6 miles is pretty sweet.

Warning - easy to take the wrong trail! There are two trailheads at the parking lot and we didn't see any signs so we took the one on the left over the bridge. Norton is the one that veers to the right. Nice hike anyway but much further to any lakes

Late afternoon hike and we weren’t sure how far the upper lake was from Lower Norton, so we didn’t continue. In hindsight it’s only ten minutes more uphill to Upper Norton. Next time we’ll continue. The upside of starting at 4PM was that there was lots of parking and we only saw 4 other people.
