Beautiful and very easy trail. Very popular so you won't be alone on this trail pretty much ever but it is definitely an enjoyable walk.

I usually take Max's short cut to Lilly lake and then the trail to the Butte, then over to Lizard lake and I take loop back on the Lizard and Lilly trail. It's around 9 miles takes around 3.5 hours with a few stopes at the view points. They have added more signs and done some repairs to the trails.

Nice views of lakes with some awesome campsites around lakes. Good signage to different views. Raptor ridge is a good outlook. Rough first 1.5 miles up but pretty level after.

Nice little quiet walk around the lake. It was especially beautiful in the fall!

Amazing hike, I wish I was bright enough to read a few more reviews as it was basically straight up and straight down. I've been on a lot of hikes, but this one is definitely the one to take your buddy on that thinks he can out hike you. I made it to Cedar Lake but it was getting dark so I had to head back. I'll definitely come up another time and check out the other lake as well.

Did this hike yesterday, and had extremely muddy areas because of all the rain we had last week. The hike was fun and challenging in some areas.

This is the perfect, easy, comfortable trail for a stroll with a friend or a run.
