Completed this as a day hike on 6/23/18 - awesome hike and we saw two mountain goats grazing in the meadow up by the lakes! Yes, it was closer to 8 miles round trip than 6. The trail didn't seem to follow exactly what AllTrails has marked. Also, the parking and trailhead situation was a little confusing - there was one sign pointing straight labeled "Twin Lakes TH 1/2", so we followed it and ended up at a parking lot with an unlabeled trailhead. We were confused because AllTrails didn't have this labeled as the start of the trail, so we turned around and parked the car back at the sign, and hiked to the right. It turns out that both ways are viable options and they eventually meet up with each other.
