Well worth the effort. Camped at the top. Bring at least 3 liters of water if you're doing the whole trail, especially if the sun is out. There are many streams if you have a filter.

This hike was very beautiful, the lake was big with plenty of places to camp. I wish I brought a fishing pole!!

This review is from someone who tried to bike from Primrose trail head up to the lake and back. Apparently, most individuals who bike it prefer to start at the Lost Lake trail head and through bike up to the lake and down to Primrose. We kept wondering why everyone was passing us the opposite way. Otherwise, the rating would be different. We bit off way more than we could chew trying to bike up this way. We are definitely not very advanced mountain bikers and we had to carry our bikes up a lot of the steeper/root-filled sections. Didn't make for the most awesome experience. However, the views and riding at the top by the lake are phenomenal and the ride back down was most supreme. So, definitely don't recommend trying to bike up from Primrose unless you've got some experience and skill. Other than that the trail was absolutely wonderful!

Gruelling hike up and down but well worth every bit of the effort. one of the most amazing and rewarding views in my 66 years on the planet

Great hike. A bit over grown in spots. The camp sites at the end are nice. We were able to see a pod of beluga whales while we ate dinner.

Awesome hike, 65 degres today, The views were breathtaking. Definitely coming back to explore more. Bring lots of water as the inclines are a killer and its humid.

Spectacular hike! Starts fairly wooded, at the Meadows overlook breaks out into open territory and beautiful alpine meadows. Every stop off provides a beautiful view, so don’t feel shortchanged if you can not make it the entire way up. We climbed to Top of the Cliffs and were rewarded with a beautiful view of the Icefield, glacier, even a black bear grazing on berries about 200 yds away. Plenty of people on the trail but good to bring bug and bear spray just in case. Took about 4 hours round trip, but we took our time and picked raspberries and blueberries along the way :) a must do for anyone visiting the area.

Best hike I ever done !

Amazing pretty much sums it up. Nice steady incline going up, lots of stops for berries because.. hello! It's September and somehow there are tong of blueberries out. Stayed at the lake for 2 nights.. could have stayed the rest of my life honestly. The hike out is also amazing! we enjoyed lunch at the peak and enjoyed 360° views!

Wet and muddy. Some wildflowers and nice views. Juneau lake and waterfalls were pretty. Lots of berries to eat. I find the hikes in Colorado to be much prettier without all the bad weather.

One of our favorite overnight backpack outings. We typically camp at Primrose Friday night and overnight somewhere along the way. It's a great way to introduce new folks to backpacking with good terrain, a variety of landscapes and rewarding views at the top!

This year, we had glorious weather on Saturday, but just as we past the lake and hit the ridge, miserable cold drizzle and fog rolled in. Incessant rain all night and less than 20 ft visibility the next morning. We booked it out. Still, a great way to spend the weekend!

Amazing views!!!The trail is strenuous, but absolutely worth it.

Honestly, I used to be an avid hiker but I’m currently pretty dang out of shape and was questioning if I should attempt this trail- it was SO worth it!!! Out of all the amazing hikes in different states that I’ve done, I dare say this was my most favorite!! The pictures don’t do it justice! My husband and I took our time and we were both in AWE! So, so worth it. And if you’re questioning if it’s too hard, just know you can do it- doesn’t matter if everyone is passing you on the way up, you will be so amazed by how beautiful the views are.

Through hiked this, solo, camped at lake. Gorgeous views. Mellow trail. Terribly overgrown and challenging for middle six miles. Very low visibility and somewhat exhausting. I don’t recommend this section of trail in late summer. Huge amounts of berries on north side. Most berries on south side were gone but mushrooms were in profusion.

Difficult but worth it! My husband and I made it down and back in just over 4 hours.
Even during not so ideal weather, the hike was beautiful. If you’re near Seward- this trail is a must!

Awesome overnight backpack with fishing opportunities. Loved this trail with great views looking back to Resurrection Bay.

must see if you’re near Seward

My 6 and 9 year old kids made the entire trail and I couldnt be prouder since it is strenuous for an adult. Views are spectacular and I really enjoyed the wildflowers. So much I bought an identifying guide book.

My first hiking trip ever. We did the 7 mile hike to Caribou Creek cabin. Trail was nice, a little muddy in spots but nothing that wasn’t impassable. Cabin was amazing!!!

My favorite part of this hike was the top of the cliffs section. Great views of the glacier and very lush at the end of July. We decided to end our hike with about 20 minutes left to the end of the trail due to crummy weather.

Great trail with a beautiful lake as the prize. Last 1.5 miles is pretty overgrown but you can manage if you pay attention. River views mostly along beginning 1.5 miles and keeps you cool, we love this trail, easy to find and follow.

The person who told us about this trail really undersold it. It is amazing! One of the highlights of our trip so far! Fairly lightly trafficked, especially in the morning.

Almost everyone does carry bear spray and you should too (although we didn’t see any bear droppings). Adventure 60 in town rents it at $12 a day so pick some up before you hit the trail.

Very well preserved trail with stunning scenery! The trailhead campgrounds are also incredible. A must for any travelers.

Absolutely stunning views. Bring big spray and trekking poles. Took about 5 hours round trip. Saw a few mountain goat as well.
