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.

Gentle inclines and wide track makes this an enjoyable hike. Take time to explore around the lakes!

Was a very nice hike. Walked around the lake to the mountain face and I climbed up there. Great scenery but very difficult. The larger rocks are fun and easy to climb on but the smaller ones slide and it is very hard to stay on. Overall, great hike.
Ensure you have strong big spray as the mosquitoes and horse flies are REALLY bad.
