Great short afternoon hike. Went in late fall early winter so trees weren't as colorful, but would be great during the fall. Nice easy up slope to start than a long decent into the valley floor below. There isn't much of a lake to relax at but many spots along the river were great.

Lots of uphill. Rocks, terrain. So green. Water flowing everywhere. Bridges to cross. Lake is very calm and beautiful. Elevation 9700 feet. Feels like 4 miles straight up hill.

Good trail, my dog liked it! I went to the bridge, solid two hours out and back. Mostly downhill on the way to the bridge, a nice workout on the way back...nothing extreme. Enjoy.

Hiked this trail today. No one on the trail. This clocked 6.25 miles out and back from the base of the Centennial Lift. The lake starting to freeze over in some parts, but overall still a beautiful destination.

Good morning hike, in the afternoon the sun setting makes it hard to enjoy the beautiful lake!

Beautiful day hike to Whitney Lake at 10,956 feet. Steep in sections. Great panoramic views of ridges and peaks to the south and west. Great variety of terrain and vegetation including Aspen groves--especially in mid-September when the leaves are changing.

We did this trail in early October. It was covered in snow but still doable. We saw big horn sheep and some brook trout in the larger lakes. Great hike. Hiking poles were very helpful. It was very secluded.

Gorgeous Fall day-great hike for seeing the colors.
