Great hike.

Incredible hike. A favorite of mine year round! This hike can be extremely difficult in winter months. Worth the effort!

This is the best hike I've ever been on. It was breathtaking. Highly recommend this hike. There was still snow up to the lake but it was well worth it.

Fantastic hike but quite difficult. There is a lot of snow from the lake to the ridge north of it. This is very steep so bring crampons. There are large boulders to maneuver through above the ridge. The final ascent is steep but easier than it looks from below. Views are fantastic. This took 8-9 hours with plenty of stops for photos.

Beautiful hike! Rather muddy and wet, but nothing extreme. Still tons of snow in the last mile. Careful not to get off course in all the snow at the end, else you'll miss the lake! We finished in just over 2.5 hours

Fun! It wasn't a very long hike and it was so beautiful the whole way up to the lake! Loved it!

Really difficult hike, especially after about 2 miles or so. The last stretch is still all snow, pretty steep climb, which was really hard in the snow without any traction devices or trekking poles. Once you get to the snow, it's kind of hard to stick to the trail, there were footprints going in all directions, but if you just go uphill you should make it to the top. I'd do it again, but only after the snow melts.

nice narrow trail with few people on it.

This was a hard hike.

I loved the trail. Very scenic views, even saw a moose. I backpacked and spent some nights up there. This place seems to get crowded, but if you go early it is better. There was still snow and plan to get wet! My dogs loved it. The trail is only 2.25 miles up, according to the posted trail sign at the base of the trail, not 9 miles.

Nice hike to start summer. Not too long not too hard.

Enjoyable hike with amazing views. I do this 3-4 times a year.
