Trailhead was packed with lots of cars at 9 am on Saturday but there is plenty of parking and space to accommodate. This trail is most beautiful in spring with the lush green vegetation and wide variety of wildflowers everywhere. Two lower lakes are great. To find the trail to upper lakes... find the trail along the northern lower lake along the steep hillside going up to upper lake and the trail will get you there along some steep switchbacks. Upper lake is awesome too!!

The main trail is great. It’s a steady climb but enjoyable and filled with wildflowers. We reached the first and second lakes easily but were unable to follow the trail to the third (going clockwise on the loop). Basically, there was no trail so we had to backtrack. Treat this one as an out and back.

Went in the afternoon with the family. A wonderful hike! Forest, flowers, and a water at the end.
