Drove this trail today. Easy ride with nice views. As long as the road is dry you can make it through with 2WD.

The trail was a good workout but I wouldn't rate it as hard/difficult as the site does. Although the distances traveled seem to be longer than the trail markers say, it's a beautiful hike through the forest and gorgeous views of the lakes at the top. Not too much snow right now, just a little tight as you're getting to the lower lakes. Definitely make your way toward the upper lake and take in the view of the two lower ones from above!

quick trail, but super fun. i think it could be pretty hard right after a rain or during snowmelt so be advised. pretty sure it hasn't rained or snowed up there in over a week and there was plenty of mud and puddles. if you'd like to see a video of the run i have one up at:

have fun!

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.

It was very icy when crossing the waterfalls and after the turnoff to the lake.

Beautiful, but the snow shoe trail is currently a bit marshy. Wait until it gets colder as it says 'winter only'

moderate drive. only two spots that are issues for driving. Awesome view at the top!

Awesome hike. I recommend bringing your micro spikes for the end part, if you have them. If not then hiking poles.

definitely an easy. shouldn't be moderate, passed a Passat on it. has nice views in some spots but no challenge

We got to the parking area just after 8 and we were some of the first ones there somehow. It was chilly and windy. Lots of snow and ice up high but a gorgeous lake at the end. Loved how it followed a creek.

Trail was a bit icy! Yaktraks are advised but not necessary. Super beautiful hike! Got there around 8 am and parking was available. Few spots available when we were leaving around 3 pm.

Beautiful trail with a lot to see on the way. There was some bad weather rolling in, so I didn't get to explore as much as I would like to up at the lakes, so I'll definitely be going back.

Parking is terrible, and 4th of July Road is rough if you haven't been on it before. You definitely want a high clearance car to get to the TH. Would also be a great place to backpack.

We really enjoyed this hike. Several creek crossings with well-placed boulders, great scenery, and a nice warm up and cool down with the easy portion of the trail from the trailhead. The loop portion is totally exposed, but is a great workout. I suggest going counterclockwise for a more gradual increase in elevation, but clockwise will get your heart pumping. I'd start early, if possible, especially on a warm day if doing the loop. And bring plenty of water for you and your dog.

Beautiful hike. Set out at 6:30 AM and didn’t see anyone the whole way up and back. Hiked in 4 miles on the trail to the Wilderness boundary. Hiked out on the 4 WD Road. The road was a bit sketch as there were numerous icy sections, should have stayed on the trail both ways. Take your spikes if you take the road.
