Absolutely stunning! And an easy hike too with little incline! Very enjoyable :D

Gorgeous trail and not much elevation change (until the end). Relatively easy hike! We went in the afternoon and unfortunately thunder/lightning/sleet started on our final ascent to the top so we had to turn around. Will do it again! It is annoying you have to wait to get into the area and pay $11 to park your car. We parked at the furthest lot per the parking attendants instructions and it added another 1-2.5 miles to the hike since we started at a weird spot. Otherwise no complaints!

This trail was quite the surprise. Isabelle Glacier and Lake are absolutely beautiful! I would consider this trail easy. There's a $11 entrance fee so make sure you bring cash.

Great short hike. Not too difficult. Most of climb is in the last 3/10ths of a mile id say. It randomly snowed early in the morning this past weekend so prepare for any kind of weather. Just s reminder that winter is definitely on it's way

Good little hike. If you are going late fall the water will be very low and will look nothing like photos you see. Last .5 of the hike is very rocky. Not heavily trafficked today, but still a few on the trail.

Awesome. Awesome views. We took 5 kids with us ages 5 months to 11 years. I carried the baby all the way up. I will say that for me it would be a moderate hike and not an easy one. The kids handled it fine and we're from Georgia, so we don't live in a high altitude. The top altitude is around 12,000 feet.
