Really fun run! Ran the direction of little O’Malley first. The trail down before you drop into the valley was pretty slick and there is lots of loose rock so be careful. Muddy trail but totally fun!

Absolutely beautiful. Great loop. Lots of flowers and the lakes are gorgeous. Has a steep climb and a steep decent on scree. A little tough on older knees but worth it.

This was so much fun! When you make it to williwaw lakes, go up as if you’re taking O’Malley peak back (you won’t actually have to climb all the way up. Just the hill before it) and you’ll see an UNREAL cobalt blue lake that actually doesn’t show up as water on this map. It was stunning.

Awesome trail with plenty of variation. Steep climb early on and a challenging decent with loose rock to navigate thru around mile 4. It was very foggy/cloudy today so the views up top were poor but it opened up in the valley.

First to Review

The trail is in better than great condition. Really well maintained! There was one patch of snow still hanging on, but pretty packed down and we passed without any post holing. We got lucky with no bugs as well. Saw a brown bear around mile 4, but he was on the other side of the valley floor. It’s so green and lush out there it’s beyond beautiful! One thing to note is there is no shade covering the entire trail. We went when it was overcast, but if it’s a clear sunny day bring lots of water, sunscreen, etc.
