This is one of many trails in this area but not all of them are on alltrails.com. Some of the lakes don't even have names on maps. Remote and desolate. Amazing.

Lovely day for this lovely little hike. We had it to ourselves, feeling as if you are at the top of the world. Saw a marmot scramble up the nearby slope at great speed, nothing to do with us.

Nice, scenic, lots of switchbacks but great for families. My 4 year old did the whole thing. The views at the top were incredible and we saw 6 Ptarmigan and a Pika.

Fantastic hike. Our three year old did 90% of it on his own so it was pretty easy and the views are unbelievable.
