We are out-of-towners that camped at Twin Lakes. We hiked this trail our first day in the mountains as it was close to base and rated moderate. Nice way to get adjusted to the altitude and catch some scenery. Beautiful views of the lakes!

Great hike for first time hikers!
Amazing waterfalls and Lake.
And the view of the Mountains, Aspen Trees and Wildflowers are incredible!

Great hike with so much beauty along the way, highly recommend. Aspens, wildflowers many streams and a beautiful waterfall! We took the lower trail in and back as the upper is a 4x4 road. Hiked to Lilly Pond and saw the beaver dam, go to end end of the small lake, turn around and prepare for the gorgeous view! The trailhead is called Mt. Elbert and this trail is part of the continental divide trail.

We had a wonderful time on this trail. Took the lower trail both ways because the upper trail is a 4x4 road. Wildflowers were out in full force. Enjoyed seeing Lily Pad Lake at the end.

There was plenty of changing terrain and absolutely stunning views once you get to the ponds. However, on the way down there was tons of run off at least calf deep which isn't easily hiked over without getting wet.

Did the trail with my bf and dog. Great views and lots of varied terrain. Nice loop with small lake views at the loop point. Also some nice side trails. Must for a morning hike.
