BackpackingGreat!

Not really worth it if you're only planning a few miles. the piece de resistance of this trail are the two lakes near the turn around. The last two miles before turning around are BEAUTIFUL!

This trail has been beckoning to me for years. Today it was revealed. The beginning is so rocky it requires much attention. It does improve after a mile or so but intermittent areas exist. The scenery begins with lodgepole pine, downed trees and huge boulders here and there & horse poop! Then the trail remains wide and sandy. The forest becomes more diverse. At two miles there is a pretty creek and you enter a valley with the creek, willows, and large aspen stands. The trail becomes singletrack and more enjoyable. Moose have been seen today. We turned around at 2.5miles of the 3.8 to the trail junctions. Apparently beaver ponds were beyond our turn around point. This trail is not too steep and good for backpacking, camping and trail riding.

HikingGreat!No shadeRockyScramble

Logged 18.5 miles RT from echo lake lodge trailhead. First 5 miles are relatively easy. The summit and climbed along the ridge is hard. Gorgeous trail and easy to follow but hard.

HikingGreat!

Only did three miles out and three miles back but 2.4 miles in there was a male moose with two females on the left hand side right at the beginning of the area with the willows. From talking with other hikers, they were in that area all day

HikingGreat!

Awesome trail! Took about 4 hours to reach Abyss Lake and 2 hours back down moving at a quick pace. Trail narrows after Helms Lake with some stream crossing but pretty easy to keep on trail. Fall colors were best at the beginning through the first few miles, most of the trees past that had already dropped their leaves but still gorgeous views and colorful scenery throughout. Closer to 18 miles round trip and 3500ft of gain. Pretty exposed for a couple miles approaching Abyss Lake

We did this trail with the intent to overnight at the lake with our two dogs. After checking the TOPO map and other reviews, we determined we would hike in counter-clockwise since there appeared to be several more water sources along this route, shorter overall distance to the lake, but was reported that it had more elevation change and incline. We were happy to see that all mapped water areas were present and not dried out. There are also some very pretty water features including a small waterfall/slide about 3.5 miles in. The rating in the app for this trail is Hard and I would say that it's earned. The inclines in some areas are challenging and under loaded packs for overnight camping, it does not make it any easy go. Overnight camping was easy with a multitude of dispersed campsites dotted around the lake. We followed the right side of the lake to find our spot but we did see some people go up the left and to a ridgeline and set up there as well. We set up at around 2pm in a prime location but we also saw one or two groups arriving late into the afternoon and still find sites. Fishing here was great. I brought my fly rod and recommend drys as the fish here were smaller wild trout eager to rise and strike. Next day we packed up and went out the same way, now traveling clockwise on the trail since again, more water and all decline. The decent was fast and easy and if doing the whole loop, is our recommended decent route. Overall a very pretty, mostly covered trail with options for fishing and dispersed camping that's great for the day or a short couple day stint in the wilderness!

HikingGreat!Rocky

Great trail!! Glad we got there at 730 am on a Tuesday morning. Color is peaking right now. Very crowded and understandable given the color and the wonderful weather. We did about 4 out and 4 miles back. Also, at 730 am, trailhead temp was 31 degrees! Really nice day

BackpackingGreat!IcyNo shadeOff trailRockyScrambleSnow

clocked in 22.4 miles went all the way to evans, vert wall after upper Chicago seperates all the hikers and most people stop at upper Chicago ,the 13er you cross is not easy and you still have to wrap the bend and meet up with the evans summit through rock hopping and light light scramble , the park boarded up all shelters and it was so windy and freezing and we had to keep moving which sucked , going back towards summit lake it was slammed with wind and once we got down from the vert wall after upper Chicago we mad a fast descent and made an overall summit trip right under 9 hours..we went off trail a bit, brutal day I feel great, once you pass lower chicago you hardly encounter anyone, last summit of sep 19 was way worse, way more snow
