    The hike to the bottom of Horsetail Falls is not that hard, although sometimes it was difficult to find the actual trail. The bottom of the Falls is beautiful; go early to avoid large crowds.

    I hiked to the top of Horsetail Falls to Avalanche Lake (which isn’t a hike on AllTrails, but should be). Avalanche Lake is amazing although the “trail” is insane — I use the word “trail” loosely, it’s more like a scramble over anything you can to the top. The way up was hard and the way down was brutal — but obviously doable and worth the hike in my opinion.

    It was also my first time using Trekking Poles — GAME CHANGER!!!!

    I was up there 8.10.19 and there were not many mosquitos unless you’re standing around Emerald Lake. I did some fishing, but didn’t catch anything.

    No snow. Bring water, sun block and bug repellent. There’s a free parking lot next to the trailhead but if it’s full, you’ll have to hike about a mile through a campground (not a big deal).

    Beautiful scenery, keep hiking to Skeleton Lake. I wouldn’t consider this a “steep” hike but there are some steep sections — nothing too bad though.
