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 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.

I hiked this trail on Friday. There are still plenty of wildflowers in bloom. Winnemucca Lake is simply breathtaking.

The Wildflowers are in full bloom. Moderate hike...uphill one way and down hill the other. No way getting around it. The trails are clearly marked and are well maintained. You do meet the nicest people on the trail...common bond is enjoying the beautiful flowers and lakes. A couple of seasonal creeks to cross, but are easy. Love this hike.
