Took the gondola from the base of the ski hill up to the Standish chairlift. Then took the chairlift up to the top. Nice way to enjoy the scenery and views above the tree line. Hiked the loop trail around the lakes, then took the "twin cairns meadow park trail" across the top to the Monarch view point (amazing views towards Simpson and Healy passes). Followed the twin cairns trail back down to the day lodge at the base of the Standish chairlift.
Although many of the wild flowers have already finished blooming, there were still quite a few left to see. Mid July would likely be a better time to do this hike.
