    Fabulous hike. Among the best hikes we've done. Ice Lake IS beautiful, but the there are impressive waterfalls and views along the trail as well. Took us 5 hours (excluding time hanging out at Ice Lake) and that included the extra mile past Ice Lake to Fuller Lake. We did not do Island Lake. The hike is rated Hard, but I would say Moderate.

    A great hike. My first 14er. Did the hike on Friday, July 7. Arrived just before sunrise. Main parking lot was about half full. There are toilets at the parking lot. The hike starts out across a marshy area. (The trail has wood walkways in places as needed.) Imagine our delight to see a moose bathing in the pond near the trail! Took us 6 hours to complete the hike, including about 20 minutes at the peak. I'm 57, in good but not great shape and live in Dallas (500 ft elevation).

    Nice hike. Tree-lined all the way, so views are limited. On the trail at 7 a.m. and finished at 2:30. Felt longer than 11.3 mi. (8/25/16)

    Terrific day hike. Strenuous but not difficult. Nice views once you're above the tree line, especially at Wheeler Peak.

    Camped at the trailhead. Hit the trail at sunrise (6:30), reached Wheeler Peak at 11:00 and was back at the trailhead by 2:30. Glad I got an early start. Clouded up at noon and a light rain began around 1:00. But there was also lightning in the area and above the tree line there's no place to shelter. I'm a low-lander (Dallas), but in reasonably good shape (56; bike 40 miles a week). The altitude caught up with me; had to greatly slow my pace and take deeper breaths for the last 2-or-so miles up. Did not see another soul on the trail. Scads of marmots near the peak, including one perched on the top of the rock pile marking Wheeler Peak! (Photo.) No snow or ice on the trail (8/31/16).
