Great! Short, sweet and sort of steep!

If you just want to hike this is not the trail you want to be on. There were so many mountain bikes. Too many to count, very frustrating.

This was a really pretty trail that was relatively easy - just one small stretch of rocky, steep trail. It was a great trail for the dogs. We were a little disappointed by the lack of any awesome views but the history of the old homesteads made up for it.

Did this trail right after the snow storm and was the first one up. The trail didn’t exist so I got a bit lost and post holed my way up to the top. Saw a moose though.

Windy & relaxed switchbacks, nice leaf coverage, great for dogs (which can be off-leash) and relatively few people. Overall very lovely!

Ryan must have done this the day before the snow storm., because now postholing started getting bad less than 1.5 miles in. Making it to Mitchell lake is easy though. Saw the biggest moose of my life with a calf in the brush along the river before mitchell lake. Got tf out of there quick.

So this trail was super easy. i don't know how it was rated as difficult. pretty much a walk with some steeper walks. there was exposure on 0 sides. You can swim in the lakes though. it is cold

Icy on the way up, but spectacular views on the climb up to the upper lakes. I'll be back soon!

Relatively easy hike to the two lower lakes which are lackluster as lakes go. The hike to the upper lake was decently strenuous but kind of nice due to the fact there was no one up there. Overall, a nice day hike trail that wasn't as crowded as others so close to Boulder.....for now.

Trail gets lost around the 2 mile mark, roughly .2 miles
Before the first blue lake. Be prepared for postholes and bushwhacked trails through marshy area and shallow pines. Might be best to wait until the snow firms and the trail can be re-established.
