    Went from Atwood up over Trail Rider Pass to some of the other lakes a few years ago. This is an advanced hike. The trail up to the Chain lakes and beyond is rocky and deeply rutted from horse traffic that made it challenging. Saying that, like most things in life...the challenge made it worth it as the fishing at Atwood was great. Fishing wasn't as good at the upper lakes (Beard) etc. or lower Chain lakes. I hiked this one way in 9 hours but it was intense. If I were to do this again, I would take two days to hike in and enjoy it more.

    As others have said...nice easy trek. Made a loop from Grandaddy/Betsy/Marsell/Mohawk and back to Granddaddy. Nice easy trail but the fishing was terrible. Not quite sure if it was just bad timing on my end. Because of the lack of difficulty, this is a busy and well used basin, yet large enough that you can find solace if you just walk a bit further. Great place to cut your teeth if you are new to backpacking or if you are taking a rookie along.
