We arrived in Mammoth Lakes late in the afternoon (5 pm) and this was the perfect evening hike! Took about 45 mins-1 hour each way. The lake was beautiful and we were able to sit on a large rock and enjoy the view & a cold brew. Saw a black bear and a snake on the way back!

The first day hiking with a 25lb pack was challenging.
Great views

This is not an easy trail, but the payoff makes it worth it. The lake is full and the views are awesome.

a little rough as we live at sea level and have only just acclimated, and we're just at the beginning of moderate hiking- however the switchbacks aren't the worst we've done and the lakes and views were worth it. :)

Good hike, a good work out with all those switch backs
