I love this trail! Be sure to bring lots of water and snacks. It's a tough hike.

Went in late September 2016, it was great!. However, it was snowing at the submit and rained a lot on the way up and down. Wasn't prepared for wet weather either. Switch backs are a bit rough at first, and didnt realize how much elevation you gain either. Overall though, i'd do it again. It was fun, scenery is great.

We just did the first part up to Black Lake. It was absolutely beautiful and very easy except for one steep part

Nice Sunday hike, did it 1st weekend in November with a little snow on the ground. Forest trail along a creek leads to nice lakes and mountains. Enjoyed it very much

Yes, more like 4 miles in and 8 round trip. Climbing the whole time, but has some pretty good switchback trails. With some rest stops, it's doable. The lake is a gorgeous gift at the end and you won't want to leave. Beautiful valleys and views of the mountains that you'll want a camera for. Trail head start is clearly marked with a parking area. Water available all over along the trail so if you have a filtration system bring it to alleviate the load. Not well travelled, you may encounter one person, if that especially if you go on a week day. So worth it!

We backpacked this trail during the first week of June 2016. The high lakes basin of the Eagle Cap Wilderness was still snowed in but this trail was open. The first couple of miles were brushy but then it opened out into rock fields, Old Growth forest and meadows. There was a forest fire in the first two miles which is partly why its brushy. We only saw two other parties, from a distance, for the three days we were there. A friendly doe followed us for a bit. The wildflowers were fantastic!

This was a great hike. Long uphill to the lake and a few tough stretches but not too bad. The lake itself was beautiful and we saw a lot of goats. As the summer months go on this would be an awesome place to camp.

This is a pretty long climb. Trail is easy the walk is not. Beautiful area and will hike this trail again. Just know the climb is over 2300 ft in elevation. Easy trail moderate to hard climb.

The water is freezing, you need to go on really warm days. Crystal clear though, and beautiful views. Great place for stargazing at night.

I actually hiked this trail and surrounding area while working in the area. It's a beautiful area. Pretty steep if you do anything off-trail
