If you want to add 4th of July Lake add an additional 2.6 miles to the total hike. Going into the lake is downhill which of course means you must go uphill to return to the original loop trail.

Great views but we got caught by a snow storm and had to rush back.

I really enjoyed this hike. I had not been out on the trails in a while, so it was not too strenuous, but also had it's own challenges with elevation gains. The lakes along the trail were beautiful.

Great hike! Little more difficult than "easy", allow about 3-3.5 hours. The views and the lakes were awesome!!

Great hike today. Travelled clockwise to Lake W then on to Round Top Lake then back down. Not sure I would rate this as "easy". Easy for me but not easy for all. Gorgeous views at every turn.

Beautiful hike from Woods Lake to Round Top Lake to Winnemucca Lake. We saw waterfalls, glaciers, streams, beautiful wildflowers and outstanding views of the mountains on this loop.

A fabulous hike. Took nearly 3 hours but was absolutely worth it. Surprised to see so much snow in late August.
