Went on a Saturday so it was a little crowded but could walk for awhile without seeing anyone. Just backs up at the waterfalls and lakes. Fairly easy hike and beautiful views. It’s quite a drive up a smooth dirt road with so many great views of lakes as well. We were coming from marble. We were able to take our time at each lake and let the dogs play and cool off in the crystal clear water. Did a little fishing and caught a baby rainbow trout. I would do this hike again any day so worth it.

Great trail with stunning views! The campground isn’t open yet (as of Memorial Day weekend) but you can park and still walk up to the trail. The hike to the second lake is easy with zero snow, when you start to head towards dollar lake, there’s some snow pack on a tight steep trail that we ended up turning around because of. There is signage missing at the waterfall but the trail continues toward the left, not across the stream.

Easy trail, with only a small incline. Lots of awesome scenery. The trail starts right at the campground.

Beautiful hike. Lakes are definitely something to see. Easy hike. Camp sites were totally filled and lots of people at sites. Not many people on the trial.

@Michael Howard yes you can. They have campsites right at the trailhead. If those are all full, there are plenty of campsites along the road heading up

A must hike in the area especially in the summer.

Beautiful trail with, you guessed it, three lakes. Each lake has its own character and atmosphere. Can be slightly muddy in places.

I went on a hiking palooza, and went to Zion, Arches, and few other hikes in Colorado and Utah, and this trail was my favorite. You can hear an enormous waterfall from the start of the trail, and each Lake is GORGEOUS. The lookouts are breathtaking, and walking through the rivers and streams is both challenging and exciting. I love this trail, and camping here is great too. If you like spectacular views and aren't afraid of water, this is the hike for you.

One of my favorite hikes. The lakes are beautiful, especially dollar lake cause it had an emerald color. Went in late June and the creeks were full and flowing. The view of the mountains was one of the prettiest views I've seen. Definitely recommend

Absolutely beautiful hike. Went in June and almost all the snow was melted and the lakes were full. Lots of shady spots for hot days. Definitely go to all three lakes and the water fall!

This trail still has a decent amount of snow on it. The most snow was between The Falls and Dollar lake. There were a couple of times that you had to guess where the trail was. If you are starting the loop from the east and are going up to Dollar lake you really don't hit the snow until you're about 0.2 miles from the lake. The views were gorgeous and well worth the hike through the snow.

So beautiful! Went in June and there was still some snow but not enough to ruin it!

We entered the Canyon from the West and encountered 18" of snow November 22, 2013. Difficult travelling, many mountain lion tracks, very cold. We were on our NOLS independent travel for Outdoor Education. No Shoe shoes. Trudging with 60 lbs on our backs.

Very beautiful. We went over memorial day weekend so it was a little crowded. But we loved it. Had some great swimming holes and beautiful rock formations.
