The day I went on this hike was a busy day. The views were great and the ponds at the top are pretty. There was just a lot of people. There's a "hard" and "easy" route up and down. We went the hard way up and easy way down. It was slow going up because the crowds

Absolutely stunning views through the "hard" trail. It just kept getting better and better as you went up. Cannot wait to do this trail again. ☺

The less easy route is beautiful, usually has water trickling over it and has a stone staircase that Lawrence Grassi and friends built waayyyy back in the day! The lakes get a bit stinky and buggy in summer but if you head around them there some petroglyphs on the climbing wall. They're a really faded red/orange ochre behind a low fence-check them out! The climbing wall also has a bunch of swallows living in it so if your a bird watcher look way up to the top.

Great trail with beautiful views if you chose the more difficult route. Both routes end up at the beautiful, mystifying Grassi Lakes. Clear blue water awaits on this relatively easy hike. Started on a weekday, mid-July, around 11am. Decent crowd. Enough people to not have to worry too much about the bear notices but not overcrowded. Cool to see the rock climbers, too. Enjoy!
