Did this hike over the weekend in Three days... first day clocked some miles. Beautiful views most of the way!! The trail was relatively easy just long. There are several opportunities for one who would like to spend more time out there. You could hike up to Michaëlle lakes through waterfalls creek or hike in through cataract creek, many different options! I did however notice a fair amount of garbage on the trails though

Fabulous view of the lake surrounded by mountains, with comfortable and well maintained camp ground. And you can experience it all after a couple of days of hiking if you enter the trail from Landslide lake trailhead, it might involve some bush whacking and some swamps crossing, but for the most part the trail is well maintained and marked (GPS still might be a good tool to have).
The pass on the way out had a lot of snow in the mid of July, and a lot of breathtaking views, and just several hours of hiking up, then through the valleys, and then all the way down towards highway 93.

We actually hiked to Michelle Lakes from Owen Creek and camped there. Then we headed to Pinto Lake from there, camped again. And left through Sunset Pass the next day. BEAUTIFUL. Do it.
