    My 2 sons & I came in from Texas to visit the park. This trail was rated highest for moderate difficulty, so we naturally wanted to hike here. We arrived at maybe 9:45 on a weekday, so there was parking available which is a big time saver. The hike was great with a nice incline that wasn't too challenging. The 3 bodies of water (called lakes, I guess) were very nice. The water is so clear you can easily see the fish swimming about. The path is partially paved and very well maintained. On a Thursday late in the season, there were still plenty of hikers. Almost all we encountered were friendly and offered us a kindly "good morning". We had our lunch on the rocks at the 3rd and final lake. The quite docile chipmunks will befriend you here :)

    I hiked a portion of this trail with my 2 sons as many of the West Glacier trails were not open. It was a decent hike and only a little challenging although we did not complete the entire hike. There was nothing to "ooh" and "aah" about along the way, but it was still a nice hike on a narrow path. We saw a handful of other hikers on the way. The path is shared with horseback riders although we were hiking late in the day and didn't see any riders. In order to hit the trail head you must first drive a mile or so on a gravel road.

    This trail is very well kept and very well marked and plenty of others hiking on this day, many with their dogs. There are several incline and declines and was easy/moderate. Most of the hike is shaded which is a plus in the Dallas summer heat. Facilities at the trail head and also a butterfly garden. I highly recommend this hike.
