    We did this hike on May 24th, 2017; a year with unusual snow load for this area. Therefore this was a "mud season" hike and everything was still dormant. The amount of pine trees, which had died due to the beetle kill made this trail look really trist. Before we ran into the snow banks higher up, there was a rather long section of scree covering the trail, much like one would encounter above tree line on 14ers. This was very hard on our older dog! This trail also holds two records for us: we have NEVER seen that many moose droppings and moose signs in our lives (we spend most of our time outdoors), and we have never encountered more ticks in our lives. Since this was a cold day and mud season, we did not bring bug spray (our fault). By the time we got back to our camp, we plucked over 50 ticks from ourselves, our dogs, inside and outside our backpacks. Thankfully our dogs are treated with Frontline, but several ticks still attached before they died off. I felt a bite on my neck and within the second it took me to grab the tick, it had already attached! We spent hours to "groom" EVERYTHING, and still found more ticks the next day. WE WILL NEVER SET FOOT ON THAT TRAIL AGAIN!

    OMG is all I can say! What a stunningly beautiful trail all the way up and back. Although this year's May is still early in the season, we did not fight the post holing like on many of the other trails. Snow covered the trail entirely only for the last 30 min. before the lakes. We hiked to the falls and to the lakes out and back. On the way in we stopped and took pictures endlessly to capture the ever changing scenery, the frozen branches in the creek, and the stunning mountain views. This made it into a LONG day, but well worth the extra time! Especially seeing the towering Mt. Tabeguache while we had our snacks by the lake. Love, love, love this trail. This is a repeat and keeper!

    Sure a nice trail. However, we went hiking and could only find our way by following the ski tracks in the snow. It was too early for hiking and too late for skiing. Summer or winter would be our recommendation; unless you want to post hole and guess where you are going. Try this one after the end of May; depending on annual snow load.

    Beautiful trail with stunning views from higher view points, yet a bit early this year for hiking. We ran into deep snow banks after an hour, without a clear sign of the trail. Since the trail does not go along the creek for the entire hike we had to carefully watch for trimmed tree branches to find our way. Very shortly before the end we had to turn around, since it was too much post holing for our old dog. Even so, it was a beautiful hike and a trail we want to experience later in the season.
