No, please don't do that! You miss all the fun, yet still walk 5 miles? Try to include worthwhile detour such as mills lake, haiyaha, emerald, the loch, and even sky pond

Great moderate trek with views of several alpine lakes. We did it in about 3 inches of snow and very manageable. I would recommend taking the loop left from the Glacier Gorge Trailhead.
