one of my top 5 hikes ever (of 500+ lifetime). if ur hiking the loop, recommend skipping hikes to both lakes (Ann and Rainy) as u'll get more dramatic views of each as u ascend/descend the Loop....save the energy for summiting the knob at the very top (optional-- off the actual Loop trail). hiked counter clockwise from Lake Ann side and wish i'd descended via that side ( out + back rather than Loop) b/c the scenery is much more dramatic on "Ann side" and the "Rainy side" has several short segments that are much trickier descending. View at the summit is a 360 degree panorama of jaw- dropping spires, snow capped ranges and colorful rock sediment i shall never forget. long but not difficult trail worth every single step

Our group of 5 stayed Friday night at Rampart Lakes. A few other groups were camping there by the time we made it up. The roots and rocks on the second part of the hike are challenging to navigate with a large pack so it's a little slow going. Glad we went up on a Friday. There were TONS of people coming up Saturday morning. Cars lined the road by noon so get here super early and bring bug spray.

Great trail to enjoy!! Thanks for the property owners for being so gracious to let us run/hike the trail. A couple very narrow areas for footing but a great trail. I’m from out of town so nice to explore this area and vegetation.

This hike is easy! My younger brother and I finished it less than 3.5 hours out and back! Also nice views though when you reach to the top.

awesome trail....easy and pleasant. Drive to the trailhead was gorgeous, highly recommend.

Fantastic trail for a through run. Not much actual running involved due to the technical difficulty of the trail, but the beauty here lives up to all the hype!

We really enjoyed this trail. As others have mentioned, the relatively recent fire activity has left its mark, but the stark contrast between destruction and rejuvenation really makes this uniquely beautiful. We were well past the height of wildflower blooms but still plenty of color to amplify the beauty. This is a relatively easy out and back, getting the steepest grade out of the way in the first mile. There’s not much room to pass in certain areas but we didn’t see more than about a dozen folks the entire time. There is some uneven footing in some areas but nothing too bad. The lake is a bit low (it is mid-August) but still beautiful. We have enjoyed all of our hikes in the Alpine Lakes and Enchantments area. The only real caution is the very bumpy dirt road leading up to the trailhead. Don’t be fooled by the tame washboard periodically as there are some serious holes to throw you off if you are going too fast.

Wow, this trail was a real challenge with full backpacking gear but was worth every minute of effort! The scenery was breathtaking. So many lakes and waterfalls and craggy peaks! I can see why it’s so popular. Thus, you’re never really alone on the trail. We scored a last-minute permit to camp at Snow Lake for one night. We parked our rental car at the Snow Lakes trail head and took the shuttle to the Stuart lakes trail head, hitting the trail around 6:30 AM. Easy going until the climb up to Asgard Pass. It was a mental challenge but totally fun. Once you’re at the top it’s lake after gorgeous lake for many miles. We took our time getting our feet wet, icing the knees in snow patches, and even taking a quick dip in one of the lower lakes. Climbing down to Snow Lake was a challenge for my bad knees so we took it slow. There were many camping spots to choose from and the lake was serene. The hike out was a gradual descent, except for the few boulder fields where scrambling was required. Once you leave the creek it’s boring switchbacks in mostly direct sunlight back to the parking lot. Would absolutely do it again someday! For reference we are in our early 40s and in good shape, but both have bad knees and wore braces for the downhill.

Good 2 hour hike with nice views from up there. I'd recommend doing it in the morning to avoid very high temperatures; also, bring lots of water for it's super dry and most of the time there are no shades. Make sure you are in shape, it's very steep all the way up and elevation is pretty big.

I give this hike 4 stars. The valley you're hiking through is interesting and the lake itself is beautiful. But the trail is very rooty (?) and rocky. Every step requires full attention, especially up and down the last steep mile.Gkad to check this one off the list!

some felled trees to hustle over and a bit of bushwacking on the upper half. We saw bears right around mile 5 - a mama and her cub. It was pretty hot coming out through the shale up against the rock face, but there is water available along most of the trail. The camp sites were beautiful and plentiful.

Did this is a day hike and it was tiring but beautiful! Lot was very full Saturday morning at 7:45 and fuller when I left around 3:30pm. Bring poles! Part of the trail towards Tuck is arid and crumbly dirt/rocks and I almost slipped several times going up and down. I usually don’t use poles but appreciated having them here. Shaded for the first four miles, goes in and out until Tuck and most of the route to Robin is unshaded so bring sun protection and dress appropriately. I’m terrible at route finding but once I was on the right track from Tuck to Robin thanks to some strangers’ guidance, the cairns led me the rest of the way. Would still recommend downloading maps to refer to! Some mosquitos in the very beginning but was not buggy at either lake.

What a fun trail! I went around the lake and had to do some light rock climbing. The trail gets a little tough to find right by the lake! Lots of critters, the goats were hanging out at the camping meadows today. Very busy area with all the trails around here. Got to the trail head at 5:45 and no parking. Had to park on the street. It was a work out, but another “worth it” hike!

8-15-19 Started at 7:30 AM in the morning I got to the top by 10 AM. I had the place all to myself, nobody there for at least two hours. Excellent cloud free day you can see for miles.

This trail has exposure areas to the sun in several switchbacks so TAKE PLENTY of water!!!!! The heat was hard on me today!! Hiking poles may also be helpful.

Ok, where to start? The info about this being just over 10 miles is not accurate. If you go all the way to the peak, it’s 13.4 miles round trip. The climb from the pass to the peak is BRUTAL! Very steep, unstable terrain and no shade. The payoff at the top is breathtaking! Enjoy that for a while and then start thinking about that descent down to the pass! It’s just as bad.....you can lose you’re footing quick! BE CAREFUL! Overall, I really enjoyed this hike. Up to the pass the elevation gain is rather gradual, and not bad. The changing forest, meadow and alpine was really neat! Tough hike worth the pain!
