This hike is a grind! It goes pretty much straight up to the lake. I give it five stars because at Echo Lake you are rewarded with one of the most beautiful campsites I’ve ever been at. There are plenty of little water streams to refill and there is a parking lot for your car at the entrance of the trail. Be aware of that it is a 6 mile dirt road to the trail head, which can be navigated even with a Prius in good conditions.

This is a challenging climb but very nice varied terrain with a mix of sun and shade. Echo lake is phenomenal and very private. Makes a good base for excursions to four lakes loop or elsewhere. Saw even a bit of snow still just off the trail and near the lakes on the four lakes loop.

Very diverse terrain through the hike. A mixture of meadows, red granite, wildflowers, and pine forests. A steady incline from the trailhead up to stonewall pass. From the pass, you drop down into a beautiful basin that traverses over to echo lake. A few small streams along the way to filter water, though they may dry later in the season.
