Did the hike in mid-July, due to the heat I recommend setting out early. The first two thirds of the hike feel like a bit of a slog, but they are well worth it, there are several small ponds and lakes on the way to Harriett, and once there the cold water is perfect to cool off relax before heading back. The walk back is almost all an easy downhill slope be.

Quality hike, once you get above tree line there is very little to no shade and easy to loose the trail. Be sure to follow the white dots up and back down the best you can. View from the top is worth it!

We went in the middle of August around noon. We had zero issues with mosquitoes, did not even see one. This trail is actually Nannie Creek Trail so if you don’t look to the right at about 2.4 miles in (maybe less or more I can’t remember) you will miss the lake and cont on the nannie creek trail. There is a little side trail at this mark that people have marked with rocks but it can be easy to miss. Beautiful scenery and the lake is so gorgeous! Nice for a little dip to cool off!

Great trail with excellent views above the tree line. Be careful to follow the dots and arrows on the rocks on the way down. Easy to get off trail.

This was one of the most strenuous day hikes I’ve ever done. My teen kids did it and one made it to the summit while the rest of the group lunched kn the ridge. The hardest part was coming down and making sure you are on trail. Make sure you pay attention to the white dots to keep you on trail

Awesome and tough hike. Long and steady uphill climb with a few flat spots to give you a break. The hardest part of the climb was the last mile? when you start climbing ridge. The soil was soft and loose and hard a hard time keep track of. Made it to the top and then the clouds starting rolling in bringing thunder and lighting with a little rain on the way down. It was awesome and scary. No bugs except at the parking lot. Definitely worth the climb just wish the weather was a little clearer at the top but oh well.

very nice hike, started from lake of the woods area trails to fish lake. Extremely well maintained flat trail with very little elevation gain. Highly recommended

Fantastic hike! Not my first time up. I was curious how fast it was possible to summit and return this time since I read so many reviews of fairly lengthy round trip times. Hiked it yesterday starting at 1pm. Total trip time was 3 hours 33 minutes. I didn't think the scree was very bad. Mt. Thielsen is much worse. Amazing views from up top!

This is a super easy hike from four mile lake to squaw lake. Very little elevation change. Passing Orris and Norris ponds was fun. I felt like orris should have been named “Chuck,” but out of my control. We camped overnight and didn’t have too much of a problem with mosquitos (August 2). You could hear boats on the water from four mile lake as it is very close. Surprisingly, we did not run into any people on the lake or on the trail. The trail was in very good condition.

Amazing! Hiked this with my Dad two days ago. I was worried about mosquito due to past recordings, but I would say they were only a problem within a mile of the trailhead, and I didn’t think they were too bad for this time of year. It’s no joke about paying attention on your way down. Don’t spend too much time watching your feet, and more time making sure you can see Fourmile Lake. Excellent hike 10/10 would do again.

The hike down was far harder than the hike up. There is loose rocks and gravel on top of the trail, so you are constantly slipping. I fell several times so be sure to wear footwear with ankle support. The mosquitoes were really bad in the wooded part of the trail, so I would recommend either running through that area or wear lots of bug spray. Also, make sure to have lots of water. For me, 2 L was not enough. With all of those negatives out of the way, it was a stunning view at the top and well worth the effort. If you live in the area and see it everyday, then it is a must that you get to the top just to say you did it!

Great hike. Except for the most aggressive mosquitoes I've ever encountered. I only rate it 4 stars because of all the very loose and scree and cinder, in basically every steep section from the PCT onward, which make it a fairly treacherous hike in places. You really have to watch where your going, we lost our footings on shifting rock a constantly. Route advice: when you are above the treeline on the ridge and can see the summit, the trail disappears. There are lots of white dots of various age going about a dozen different routes, but they help more going down then up. I suggest keep the ridge line about 20 feet above you, which means a climbing straight up a few times as it rises. When you get to the final push you can choose to go right or left up the ridge, the ridge will be rocky on the left, but very deep cinder on the right. The rocks are actually much easier to climb then they look, and the cinder you will loose 1/2 step sliding back for every step up, but it is great coming down.

Awesome hike. We hiked back to Margurate Lake and did some fishing for dinner. Trail was fairly easy. From the Nannie creek trailhead it ascends for a couple miles then pretty much all downhill from there. Mosquitos were a lot less than expected and wasn’t much of a bother. A few downed trees but was no big deal. Beautifully scenic as you pass by several lakes on the way.

Hiked this 7/23. As mentioned previously the mosquitos were intense. I am normally not bothered too much by them, and these guys were on a mission. We ran the last mile or so just to escape them and get back to the car. We were wearing deet, they didn't seem to care. I did this with a friend, we each carried 2 liters of water. I had very little after finishing the trail. In total this trail took us 8 hours, but we took a lot of stops for photos. If you are planning on taking NFRD 3650 to get to the TH, be aware the second half is very narrow with minimal turnouts, and there are lots of rocks and ruts in the road. My smartwatch thought I was mountain biking and rewarded me with a "that was a great workout" after we got off the road. I did manage to make it down the road just fine (going slow) in my corolla. Other people had made mention of a 5 dollar parking fee. I didn't see a fee box, or any signs making mention of paying at the TH. We did see a sign on the way in that states you entering a fee area. We did see a ranger parked at the TH when we returned to the vehicle, but he left quickly. I wasn't able to ask him about it, but we didn't get a ticket either. So I would say it's safe to assume you don't need to pay to park there at this time. Side note, if anyone is planning on going up soon, the sign in books are all full. I wish I would have known so I could have brought a new one to add to the boxes at the top.

Did and overnight (7/22/19) - Beautifully peaceful landscape. Hot but great shade almost the entire way. BRING BUG SPRAY/LONG SLEEVE + PANTS. Couldn’t stop walking without being covered in mozzies. They’ll stab you through your underwear and dig into the wrinkles in your hands. I walked out of there with at least 200 bites. 4 stars without the bugs.
