HikingGreat!

Arrived around 8 am Friday Aug 7th lot about 1/2- 3/4 full. sunny day with cooler weather in the upper 60’s challenging climb trekking poles very helpful. beautiful scenery not too busy during the week some bugs on the trail in brush covered areas but not too bad with the cooler weather. Late afternoon used bug spray on the way back down and Worn long leggings to keep bug off and avoid scratches in some over grown areas of trail. Pay attention couple areas of trail not clearly marked easy to get off course. gorgeous lake even caught three fish. Lake cold but did quick swim in and out. By 2 pm lake area pretty busy with people and most tent sights near lake full. 1/2 of campers/hikers had dogs but respectively kept on leashes we brought our dog too no issues he loved the swimming.

Backpacked to Tuck Lake on the weekend of July 24-26. The first 3 miles getting to Tuck is a flat and pretty easy hike past Hyas Lake. Past that, you gain a lot of elevation in a short period of time. I had a very heavy pack so it was quite difficult. There is not a lot of camping around Tuck, so if you are going in a larger group, securing a spot might be difficult. There are many false trails around Tuck which made navigation a little difficult. The bugs were the worst I’ve ever seen so bug spray was an absolute must. On the following day, we hiked to Robin. Since we stayed at Tuck, we saw lots of hikers passing through on the way to Robin. Robin is a lot larger and much more open than Tuck which is why I can see why many hikers opt to stay there. Robin was beautiful and if you hike up a ways past the lake, you can get a pretty awesome 360 view. All in all, both very pretty lakes and if you can deal with the steep incline, it’s worth it. The bugs are no joke though so definitely prepare for that.

It was really a great hike I enjoyed it. The bugs were bad but well worth it. If you are an un experienced hiker it may not be for you as this is a challenging hike. Bring bug spray and a good attitude

Awesome hike! This hike is definitely what I consider as “moderate.” My watch clocked the whole round trip from the parking lot to the small beach by the lake at 6.6 miles. It took 2 hours and 44 minutes to get up and down, but with breaks I would say 3 hours. The road to the trailhead is very well maintained. It’s a gravel road with very few potholes. A high clearance car is not necessary for this. When we went it was slightly rainy, so the trail was somewhat muddy coming back but it wasn’t bad. Some bugs, so definitely wear bug spray and long sleeves! The switchbacks are definitely the worse part of the hike and only last about a mile, then it’s smooth sailing.

Long, steep climb. There are some shady spots along the way, but I’d recommend starting early. Nice view from the top. Poles will help with the steep down.

Beautiful tral, a good amount of switch backs right st the beginning then come to the top where you will turn left to go to lake Valhalla (while being on the PCT). The whole trail is beautiful and the reward of Lake Valhalla at the end is amazing! bring your lunch and swim clothes, dont forget your bug spray the mosquitos are relentless!

You don’t need to do all 8 mi!! It’s only 1 mi or so to the waterfall and good views. After that the trail was pretty grown over. The first 1.5 mi up though was pretty!

Great hike! Definitely bring bug spray for the section up to Pete Lake. Shortly after Pete Lake there's a knee deep river crossing, recommend having a pair of water shoes to change into for the crossing. Come early if you want to secure a decent spot at the top. Lots of campers when we went and not much privacy at the lake but still an amazing time!

Easy walk. Not a trail to exercise but a walk to enjoy the views. Picnic tables available at the beginning, recommended! Then take the trail and take as many pics as possible. Bring $5 in cash for fee. No discovery pass.

Great hike. There’s mini segments with a slope but for the most part it’s fairly flat. You can hardly tell you’re going up a hill. Amazing views at the top.

Reviews from my 7 years old - It’s nice to walk behind the waterfall. It was fun to dip my hands in the water. The trial is narrow, but since we went there early, we had the whole mountain to ourselves.

Great trail to hike! As many mentioned, the road from NF-4330 to the trail head is not easy to drive. It took almost 40 minutes for 12 miles. We've got to the trail head by 7:30 am and started hiking around 7:50 am. The mosquitoes have already welcome us on the parking lot. The first 4 miles were pretty flat with slow elevation gain. When reaching Deception Pass, the elevation gained 1000 feet in 0.9 mile to Tuck Lake. Then when leaving Tuck Lake on the way to Robin Lakes, the road turned into a mystery and we've got lost for a little while before finding the right trail with cairns. Thanks to the cairns from the previous hikers, after many ups and downs with hands and feet, we were finally able to get to the bank of Robins in 1.3 miles with only total incremental of 850 feet in elevation. The Robin Lakes were beautiful themselves, with Mt. Daniel in the background, it's even more breathtakingly beautiful. We tried to hike up to the top of Granite Mountain but when reaching around 7,000 feet, the road disappeared and seemed to require to walk down through a patch of snow and then up. Due to the safety concern, we headed back. Still we saw Mt. Baker and Mt. Helen in far distance in different directions at this point. My final recording showed 16.3 miles in total. And others had similar mileage. 16 miles is closer to its real length, which is more than 13.7 miles as shown here. In summer, mosquitoes are the biggest enemy on this trail; also, as it's sunny, the trail is very dusty. The dirt will cover your face with sweat eventually. From Tuck to Robins lakes, there is almost no shade at all, it's so hot under the sun that people can easily get dehydrated. Everyone from our group drank up the water including the filtered lake water (very sweet and tasty) before getting back. So you might consider bring enough water and water filter if possible. Not many people on the trail, we met some backpackers coming down and going up, maybe since it was still Wednesday. Overall beautiful trail, well worth to go!

Very hard! But worth it. Rachel lake is beautiful we camped one night there, the bugs weren’t to bad once the sunset and the wind picked up. We took just a day pack to Rampart lake and it’s was also totally worth it!

Beautiful views but this trail wins for most dog crap on a trail! Not just on the sides of the trail but all up the middle. Watch your step!! Update: Looks like someone moved the dog crap to the side of the trail. To people playing music while hiking; put ear buds in!! No one else wants to listen to your noise!
