Gorgeous! Still some snow on the sides of the trail as of July 10. Rocks at the end can be tricky! So glad we did this while the crowds were at Lake Moraine

This is a great hike through a stunning forest trail. Easy enough for anyone. In the fall your get to see some larch trees.
When you get to the lower lake right after the wetlands, there is NO NEED to climb and trek over the rock slide to the upper lake. You will spend an hour each way, it's terrible terrain and the view is no different. Stay at the lower like and have lunch or a beer.
Very cool contrast in the east side of the lake is a beautiful ridge with trees and grasses and west side of the lake are the dark relentless cliffs of Mount Babel. The lake is a stunning emerald colour
