This place is amazing. Words cannot describe the beauty of the lakes. Pretty easy hike. It only gets a bit tiring when reaching the second and third lake. Highly recommend getting here early (latest 8) to beat the annoying crowds.

We did the hike two days ago on Sunday .Start by nine am at the latest as it gets very busy and Parking gets scarce . It was absolutely spectacular. The mosquitoes were not out yet. Near the third lake there was quite a bit of snow on the ground. Pass the third lake lookout , if you want to proceed to the campground, poles and or micro spikes are advisable. The third lake was still 1/2 covered with snow . A whole group of mountaineers were at the campground, about a dozen tents. There is a cache for bears near the campground. There is also an emergency helicopter pad for rescue. And outhouse is also near the helicopter pad. The only One on the hike beside one at the parking lot. There is no phone coverage at all on that hike. So make sure to put your phone on airplane mode or you will drain your battery.

Is a hike that offered for all levels of fitness. You have 3 lakes with amazing color, if you do not feel like hiking too long the first lake will offer an amazing view just steps from the parking lot. Then comes the middle lake, a bit more walking but another amazing scene, then the third one comes with an spectacular view well worthy. Not to say is a difficult hike.

Despite the fact that I am out of shape, I believe this trails is easy and can be done by most people. It may be a bit challenging for young kids.
It is also a very busy trail. I did it on a regular business day and it was still busy. It is most likely very crowded on weekends.
The lakes are STUNNING! So beautiful!
If you can get a day off on week days, it totally worth it!

Beautiful views but very slippery and icy!!
Trekking poles and boot spikes would have been helpful this morning.
