Great trail vey scenic, pretty muddy and lots of snow last mile. Saw 3 moose hanging by the side of the trail. Several trees are down so you'll have to get around them.

I hiked this trail with my 7 year old. It was still early in the season and cold at night. We camped at East Meadow and hiked towards Cat's Lair but turned back because thunderstorms. Lots of downed trees. The trails were dry except rain but the meadow was flooding. There were reports that the trail was snowed in near Lone Pine Lake, something near 5' supposedly. There are some fantastic vantage points and decent Backcountry sites. Bear cans and permits are required for overnights. I'd love to go back and explore further. We saw moose and deer but no other big animals. Pets are prohibited. Mosquito repellent is a must.

Such a wonderful hike if your only in grand lake for a weekend or more! The trail starts off pretty flat as you travel along the meadow, then starts picking up elevation about a mile in where you climb to the three lakes. Great for beginners and experts alike. We were four college kids and had a great time! A++ for sure!
