Amazing fall colors. Nobody in trail but us. Very windy at the top but the view of the twin lakes is beyond beautiful.

This is one of the prettiest places I have seen in Alaska. Though it is rated Easy, it does have some steep inclines....or maybe I'm just out of shape lol. Highly recommend going to this place!!!

Great family hike in easy to access alpine. Marker showing start is incorrect. Follow road to end gate. Trail goes along old road quarter mile before going up to the left near a large waterfall. Map does show but there are two alpine lakes above the waterfall. Higher lake has ice bergs throughout the summer. Brought elementary age girl up for first overnight backpacking trip. Great hiking with snow fields above lakes.
