Backpacked this on a hot summer day last year and our group of three guys in our early 30s and one cattle dog had our work cut out for us. Made it to the second lake and our one buddy decided that was as far as he was going so we set up camp at the most picturesque site I've ever had. Getting a permit was kind of a hassle but well worth the effort. Wouldn't mind doing this again as a day hike and camping in Big Pine.
