I took my dog to hike the sunset trail and ended up hopping onto the Big Laguna trail since it was such a beautiful day and I wanted a bit longer in the great outdoors. In total, we hiked about 6.5 miles last Sunday July 2nd. Beautiful scenery, the lagoons are full. Lots of cattle in the meadow. Not too strenuous, just keep in mind you are over 5000 ft altitude. More mountain bikers than hikers were present, but definitely not crowded.

Hiked this yesterday. It was pretty busy with large groups & lots of mtn bikers, but the scenery & the 2 lakes was worth putting up with the additional humanity. Definitely coming back to explore the side trails, too!
