Well marked trail with enough ups and downs to get some exercise. Beautiful views during the first half. It's pretty crowded, though. Also, be prepared for a muddy, slippery trail.

Fantastic hike with great view points along the way.
The spots on the top of the lakes are really worth it.
Be cautious to have mosquitos repellent depending when you plan this hike.
The end of the trail can be very muddy and includes a lot of up and downs for which it is better to keep some energy!
I've done it twice already and would be pleased to go there again!

Beautiful hike mainly through forest, with some moderate climbs and descents. Fantastic viewpoints along the way. Took me 6 hours, including 1 hour or so taking pictures.

Trail is well groomed and very well marked as trail #15 from start to finish. Maps and more info can be downloaded at the park's website.
