    Farid Baig reviewed Rachel Lake Trail

    8 days ago

    A great late summer hike. Trail is wet at places from the rains over the week but nothing too bad or uncrossable. Couple of fallen trees too but again - crossable. The last mile sees pretty much most of the elevation gain - but that view of the lake - so worth it.

    Best hike I have every done. Period. And I have done a lot of hikes. This would be my absolutely fav hike except that it gets really crowded. And people play loud music on their Bluetooth speakers on the trail. Honestly folks, you are free to listen to music on the hike if you want to but please use earphones. Playing on speakers is just plain rude!

    The effort to rewards ratio is insane on this one. Beautiful views of the mountains all the way to the overlook and the overlook view is very beautiful. But the lake itself is something out of this world. And all this for very little effort.

    Farid Baig reviewed High Divide - Seven Lakes Basin Loop

    Absolutely stunning. We went just as the smoke was clearing so we got pretty lucky but still the views of Mt Olympus were pretty much obscured by haze. That was the only bummer in what was otherwise an incredible trip. There were beautiful lakes at every turn (there are way more than 7 lakes here) and the valleys opened up to gorgeous views.

    So stunning and so beautiful :) I have been hiking the entire summer and yet this one absolutely took my breath away. This hike is perfect in every way - you have a beautiful views and mountains and green valleys all the way through, you run into mountain goats along the way and then you have an incredible pay off at the end with a stunning lake tucked in between a gorgeous basin. And no bugs to bother you. What else could you want?

    This hike will absolutely kick your butt and then some. You have to really earn that stunning view at the top - but what a view. After all that climbing and scraping once you reach the lake - the feeling is surreal. But yes this hike is not for beginners. The trail is steep from the outset and gets steeper as you go along. There is very little respite on this hike, you are pretty much going up all the way through. The trail is also narrow most of the way so you have to be careful on some portions. But it’s a gorgeous hike and I would absolutely to this all over again. The view of the lake enclosed by the beautiful valley was something else. And there was a family of mountain goats too to add to the beauty :)

    The experience of coming out of the trees and first laying your eyes onto this sea of emerald green is indescribable. It is absolutely stunning and an experience completely worth the hike. The hike in itself isn’t anything strenuous, mild for the first half and then slightly steep for the second but nothing back-breaking (as long as you are in decent physical condition you should be fine). If there is anything specifically I would be worried about then it would be the crowd on weekends. The trail and the lake can get filled up really easily on weekends so starting early or doing on a week day is a much better idea. I started the hike at 5 am on a Saturday and that was completely worth it as I had the lake to myself for almost an hour.

    Farid Baig reviewed Bandera Mountain Summit

    3 months ago

    Did it on Wednesday afternoon. Met a few people on the way to Mason lake but once the trail broke off and I took the Bandera route there wasn’t a single route. That last mile is a straight-up climbing so
    you better be prepared for that. When I reached the top, there wasn’t a single other soul. I had the entire mountain to myself and my only companions were the squirrels and 2 hawks that were enjoying the day. I just sat there for almost 40 minutes before heading back to the lake and no one disturbed me. Perfect!

    Absolutely love this hike. No idea why it’s rated as hard though. Unless you are doing the adjoining hike to Bander mountain as well, this is a very moderate hike. I did both - climbed Bandera and then hiked down to the lake on a Wednesday afternoon and it was absolutely gorgeous. I didn’t have a single soul to share the views with in Bandera and even by the lake there was hardly anyone else. Do this on a weekday and your experience will be richer.

    Beautiful beach. Very easy hike with very little elevation gain but also pretty muddy.

    Hikes this today on a Friday afternoon and turned out to be absolutely the right decision. This is an absolute gorgeous hike and completely worth it with views of the lake just splendid but as with most alpine lake hikes - there isn’t a whole lot of room to sit and enjoy the views at the end so if you go on a weekend you are likely going to have to struggle to completely enjoy this view. I went today afternoon and there were 2 other people at the lake when I reached and I found a wonderful spot to just sit by the lake, lake around and enjoy the views. Gorgeous gorgeous hike.
