Mileage discrepancy between AllTrails and my Apple Watch...my watch clocked me in at 9.11 miles. Either way great hike with stunning views of the lake!

This is hard but worth it! I got off trail after the se one water crossing so be mindful. If you don’t get up to sawtooth lake all the way there is alpine lake too! The parking lot and campground is right below the trail head which makes it perfect for a day hike and then camping afterwards

Hiking

Awesome hike, expect an interesting finish of the hike to the top unless you have been here before. Tip #1 messed with us a little as it suggested going to or almost to the falls before making the climb. I would say about 100-150yds after the main trail opens when you FIRST see the granite wall to the right you should look for a small switch back with “natural” steps in the granite that you can begin your climb. IF you hit a old wash out area you’ve gone too far. The angle to take to the top is upwards and to the left as you climb, avoid going too vertical too quick. Aim as if you were going to shoot for the top of the falls. When you get to the boulder field stay to the left edge as much as you can. You will hit the creek, where you can cross the beaver dam and then proceed to the lake. All in all, worth the effort and the climb!

If you load up on blueberries you can make it to the top no problem.

HikingGreat!

I went there for the first time to hike and did a SNRA clean up, the lake is so beautiful! About the last part with scramble rocks was not too bad, how was in one of the reviews below, with a good boots and a hiking poles you can make it.

HikingGreat!Off trailRockyScramble

OMG!!! Excellent hike. As a flat lander, I definitely struggled with the scramble at times, but it was so worth the pain once you made it to the falls/lake. The tips are spot on, and we also noticed a small man made rock tower marking the start of the boulder field, definitely avoid that area. You can find some videos on YouTube that will also help you identify markers on the unmarked portion on trail. Pack light, start early, plan on closer to 5 miles each way after detours, and definitely bring your poles. We did this mid-week, mid-September and there was plenty of parking and only saw 3 other pairs of hikers. Highly recommend if you’re looking for a challenge.

Hiking

A must do. Did it in while it was raining and, to me, the views were still epic and the weather only added a cool moody vibe. You get up close to the base of the jagged mountain tops which was a real treat. Hike Assessment- A pretty easy steady uphill with the last 30m being all switchbacks to the lake. Definitely get down to the lake where the logs build up for the best view. On the way down you can bypass the switchbacks but be mindful to have the trail ahead in sight so you don’t miss landing back on it. Total hike time was 4hrs, total time with photos and all was 4hrs30m.

On the easy side of moderate—and you can extend this hike to other lakes and vistas! Gorgeous fall hike with a forest floor of color! Did 14 miles today with my pups-lots of creeks and streams.

Gentle uphill. Beautiful Mountain View’s. Some technical parts (100 yards at a time).

HikingGreat!

I am 52 and in moderately good shape. This trail is hard but well worth the effort. Starts out deceptively easy till the trail splits to Goat late or Sawtooth lake. Soon after this the switchbacks start! OMG the calves told me to stop but I didn’t listen. They felt like they were going to burst into flames at any moment. Then you turn back and keep going uphill, trust me switchback doesn’t mean gently strolling uphill! Then you top a hill and think your going to get some relief, but this is FALSE hope. It gently rolls uphill and just when you feel confident about yourself and can start to see Goat Falls, which is beautiful, you come to “the rock scramble” others have described. HOLY MARY MOTHER OF GOD! This is no “slight scramble”. It is loose rock for miles and miles, at least it seemed to go on forever to me! The trail is barely there and basically you crawl on hands and knees uphill across the Sahara Desert except it is a vertical wall. Just when you are about to give up and scrawl your last will in the dirt you reach the top of the falls and immediately forget all the pain. Beautiful views and an easy stroll to the most beautiful lake you’ve ever seen, it had snow on the edge in September and the water is so clear you can see fish swimming about 10 feet deep. We rested for about an hour before hiking out. The hike down the scramble is even worse than the climb up. If we had rappelling ropes or skis we would have been ok but walking down was like descending 50 stories on loose gravel that made you slide as much as you stepped. If you could say Covid has slightly changed our daily activities then you could describe this as slightly steep. After surfing down you are rewarded with a downhill all the way hike of about 150 miles. Your knees and calves ache, your feet hurt, you hips refuse to move and you stagger back to the car. When you reach the trailhead and sit down all memories of the hike evaporate and you can’t believe how much you enjoyed it!!!!

Well worth my 800 mile round trip! More like a 20 mile loop. View video of this trail at https://youtu.be/yQxjrl-3gb4
