Unable to hike now due to snow. I’m sure this hike is wonderful, but just wanted this review to be on here so people know the condition of the trail.

Really awesome trail and amazing views. My opinion, this is hard rated. Pretty much 1000 ft in a mile. They have horsetail falls rated hard on here that’s a mile longer and about 600 ft per mile. Especially since you start at like 10,500 ft, so you’re kinda winded from the get. Really cool though and the lower loops are awesome too.

Short, sweet trail in great shape.

Took the dogs out for this fun hike last week. It was pretty dry out so part of the trail was really dusty but still fun. It was nice to have the variety of terrain from dirt, to wooden foot bridge crossings, to climbing rocky boulder steps. Loved having plenty of little lakes and ponds to stop at. We took the clockwise route on accident and found that it was still fun, just a little steep for the dogs at times. There were definitely no bugs out so that was a plus! Don’t forget to pay the park fee before you start exploring because we forgot and found a nice little envelope on our windshield requesting payment when we got back to the car. Oopsies!

We went on this hike the first Monday in October. The weather was perfect (overcast with a chill to keep you from sweating). we went counterclockwise and found it was the best choice since the switchbacks were easier to go up than the loose rocks coming down. We only saw 4 other people on our hike and there were NO BUGS! we also saw some wildlife, including Mountain goats! overall this hike was really fun and pretty easy, even for my New England lungs. I definitely recommend taking a photo of the map since there is NO SERVICE and some unmarked splits in the path.

Many lakes and a couple great view points. An easy-moderate hike that gives you a good taste of the Uintas

First visit in the Uinta. The landscapes are beautiful but there were TONs OF MOSQUITOES!!! Make the hike much harder than we anticipated because we could not rest around the lakes... We heard that is common in June-July and it's much better in August so we might come back later in the season next year.
Because of the elevation, I would rate this hike moderate. Also, the "3 divide lake" trail on the North-West of the loop is hard to find.

We went counter clockwise. Stunning views at top. Beautiful alpine the rest of the route, with many wild flowers in bloom. Peaceful and serene!

Easy and beautiful. Stairway to heaven I guess you could say.

Short hike. Lots of people. Really pretty too. My 6 year old did it no problem carrying his own pack.

Lovely hike. Extremely mild. Beautiful lakes along the way. Bring some hammocks and chairs, as this is a spot to RELAX. Could have spent days exploring the Lofty Lake area. Beautiful formations and very little traffic. Smoky the past couple days, but where is it not. Highly recommended.

A great hike for a relaxing day trip to the Uintas. Beautiful is par for the course in these mountains, so be ready to enjoy some world-class scenery. The trail is relatively short, but it does descend pretty rapidly in places and is definitely rocky, so if you're new to hiking or bringing kids along be careful on the way down and budget extra time for the hike back up. Expect to see other people and even some paddle boards or watercraft on the lakes.

Gorgeous views all along the hike. The path was very clear and easy to follow. Some of the path was smooth and flat, parts of walking on a wooden path and parts of climbing up and down on rocks. Area is clean without trash or debris and was not heavily trafficked with people. Lots of great spots to place a tent if you were backpacking

Love love this hike - had to stop a couple times on the way up, but no regrets because the views are to die for. Agree with moderate difficulty, and take plenty of water because you are going to want to be up there for a while!

Took my boys on this trail. It was a great beginner trail for them to get started on. We went on a Thursday evening and there was only one other group of campers on the other side of the lake. We found a good spot in the trees and setup our hammocks. The weather was beautiful and surprisingly, the mosquitos were minimal. I would definitely come here again.

beautiful, but I'm not sure this is really a loop. I went clockwise and couldn't find the intersection with the Notch Trail. my nat geo map does not show a loop. it's missing the east west connector at the top. Nice to see the fall colors.

This trail is great, every lake has another view it is always beautiful. Absolutly not crowded. Much silenc, awesome.

Nice easy stroll, not so much a hike.

The views of the many lakes all along the way are beautiful. The trail is easy to follow except up to Three Lakes Divide. There isn’t a trail here and I felt bad walking on the foliage. I would have given this 5 stars if it did not include this section. Also, be prepared to pay for parking and it can pretty full. You’ll need $6 cash for one day.

Pretty busy. Sunday of Memorial weekend and got there at around 10:30am, so guess that’s to be expected on an already known busy trail. Had to park in overflow parking down the road a bit. Lots of hikes start here, and after the first bit it thinned out some. Lots of cool lakes along the way. Hiked to the last one and had a pretty peaceful lunch and tried to photograph some dragonflies. Saw some tent campers and people fishing. Overall we enjoyed the area and hope to come back for an overnight sometime.

Great hike with beautiful scenery. Some steep, rocky trails. We took a group of kids 11-17 and had a great time.

Beautiful hike with good destination lakes. Very doable with younger family. We crossed paths with a moose during a rain storm and made for some exciting memories. Lots of wildflowers, awesome alpine lakes, and variation of meadows and forested areas on well marked trail.

Great views, well worn trail, exciting cliffs to look off the edges, and very accessible trail head from the highway. My family with younger kids was able to hike this with only a few hundred yards of piggyback with the youngest. The following year all of them did it again on their own. We love this hike.

Wonderful trail with amazing views that crosses multiple lakes

As someone who doesn’t love steep or strenuous hikes, this was perfect! It’s a rockier trail in the beginning but pretty flat and you get to water really fast. Brought the dogs who had a great time swimming as we made our way around the lake. It smells like pine and there were Lilly pads on the lake and a beautiful mountain backdrop! Also super secluded, although we went on a Sunday afternoon. Honestly loved it and would happily return!

Beautiful when the flowers are blooming early summer/Late June

favorite hike so far!!!

Great trail. Everything you can ask for.

if you are doing this trail, then do the entire loop.
