Beautiful hike to Lillian Lake and Galatea Lakes (Lower and Upper). Took roughly 6 hours round trip, which included a picnic break at Lillian Lake and snack/water break at Lower Galatea Lake. Poles may be helpful when hiking on the scree, but otherwise a great moderate hike. Note: this area is known for avalanches, therefore expect to cross avalanche debris on the trail.

Great overnight trip, stayed at Lillian Lake CG and did a quick hike up to stunning Galatea Lake in the morning, so worth the extra workout. Some sections are not that "moderate" especially carrying a pack, trail gets busy on weekends but is dog friendly so great if you want to bring a furry friend.
