My favorite hike. Did it last year on 4th of July and left around 7 and it took us about 7 hrs. Was only planning to do the Booth Falls Trail and was told there was a lake if you keep going. To our surprise, it was a few miles/hours away and we were totally unprepared. It was worth it when we got to the lake but definitely bring food and water because the lake will take a few hours to get to. There was a bit of snow at the time but not much. The hike is incredibly beautiful. It was unmarked but you can basically tell where to go. There were really no people going up but tons of people coming down. It’s definitely a fun adventure. Not too difficult but very long.
