Best views on any hike I've done. We did more than just this section though, we started at Red Rock parking area and went to Goat Lake for the night. Then on to Twin Lakes the second night. When we departed the following morning for the last stretch back to Red Rock parking area we had the most spectacular views! Looking down you could see both lakes and then cross over snow capped mountains and through lush meadows. There were rivers and waterfalls, it was stunning. It was 31-35 km total loop and bikes couldn't do the last 1/3 of the loop (we climbed over at least 4 trees! And went up some very steep inclines)

Did this hike in about 8.5 hours today. Scenery was beautiful with the leaves just starting to change. Views up at the lake are stunning.

I wouldn't rate it as easy, more like moderate.

Awesome ride. Watch for bears and other wildlife. Good area to ride with bells on.
