Excellent trail conditions, dry but very steep. Very few switch backs.

Hiked here Thursday September 28th. I got a bit hot on the way to the summit so I took off my pink jacket (gloves and beanie in pocket) and left it on a branch off the trail. Upon descending approx 45 mins later my jacket was gone. If you happen to have it please email me. Thanks.

The 8-mile out and back is okay. I highly recommend going an extra 1.5 miles to the top of Eccles Pass which makes this an 11-mile out and back hike. The first 2.5 miles is fairly steep and rocky. The trail flattens out near the tree line and makes a moderate ascent to Eccles Pass. The extra 3 miles round trip is worth the view - don't stop at the end of this trail!

Hiked with our three kids, 13, 11 & 7. Incredible views and aspen trees were on full fall show.

Absolutely gorgeous trail and only moderately difficult. We had some trouble because the signage is terrible and the map we had was garbage. However, despite adding an extra six miles to our hike, we had a great time. Camping near the upper lake was epic. Fishing was great. Very chilly up at the lakes but the trail was warm most of the way up.
