WARNING! This hike has become very popular. You must go early. The parking lot was full by 845am. We were able to park at an overflow lot just south of the main lot. We started the trail about 9am. Beautiful hike. The first hike to the lower lake takes just a few minutes. The hike to the middle lake is really hard. It's almost all totally up hill. It is difficult to navigate through the massive amounts of people. The lakes and glacier are fantastic, worth a difficult hike. However it is hard to fully enjoy. Once you arrive at the lakes you can't hang out and walk around without accidentally ruining someone's photo-op.

The prettiest hike I've ever done. Stunning lakes and waterfalls. A must do early in the morning. Far too busy late morning. Becomes a total zoo and you really lose that serene feeling g if this hike.

Gorgeous glacial lakes make this a must do if you're in the area and haven't seen that turquoise water. Only 4 stars given it is pretty busy trail, but definitely still worth it.

Great hike with stunning scenery. Glacier fed lakes make them the perfect colour.

Beautiful hike with three glacial lakes. The trail begins at the lower lake and the switchbacks continue for a bit. It flattens out a little once you enter the valley and are close to the middle lake. We stopped by the middle lake for lunch and photographs and spent majority of out time here. Upper lake isn't too far from here, it is a good place to spend some time by the turquoise blue water and stare at the glacier above.
