Good hike, lots of uphill on the trail to the lake. Lots of alpine flowers. I'd like to go back when it's sunny to get views of the surrounding mountains and the lake.

Loved this hike! Easy to medium effort for maximum reward. Fantastic views. First 30 mins or so was fairly boring, but every moment after that, just great. Highly recommend this hike. We completed it in under 2.5 hrs. If you rush could be done much faster.

Finally it's OPEN it was closed for almost 3 weeks. We saw Grizzly bear, Good hike, for us it it was easy hike. We done in 45 minutes one way. But it's worth it to see elephant rocks, plus we went little further to see couple more lakes.

Easy hike. Slight uphill at start, but very gradual the rest of the way. Quite bust in July.
