Hiked to Canyon Creek Lakes and back, camping just before junction to Boulder Creek Lakes for two nights. Beautiful area with cool views and many different water falls. Went in colder temps just before Thanksgiving and only saw one other person. There are options to go to Boulder Creek Lakes and L lake. This trailhead also goes over to the adjacent Stuart Fork watershed.

Trail:
Moderate plus elevation gain all the way up to lakes. Very good, established trail. Lots of water access. There are fairly well marked scrambles right before and in between the lakes. I believe the trails to L Lake and Boulder Lakes are also scrambles.

Camp spots:
Lots of spots along most of trail as this is usually a busy, popular area. Some along last half of trail with views and many close to and around lakes.
