Amazing trail with spectacular views. We were so glad we decided to go right once we hit Upper Mohawk Lake. We saw 3 or 4 more lakes, and it flattened out in a beautiful valley full of wild flowers and rocks.

Great hike! Definitely go early, has a few "moderate" sections. Will do again.

If you're adventurous, scramble up the path beside Continental Falls on the way up. You'll be up close and personal with the falls and get great views of the valley below.

Beautiful day for a hike. Not too many bugs today. Don't be deceived by the steep looking ascent from the lower lake to the upper. Once you've made it to the lower lake, you can make it to the upper.

great hike! started from the lower parking lot. fairly gentle climb until you get to an old mining site. from there on it gets steeper. well worth the effort. hiked a little beyond upper Mohawk lake. absolutely gorgeous!

This was such an incredible hike. The views at the bottom are just as stunning as at the top. There's several lakes around the beginning/middle of the hike that look just like a Bob Ross painting. The lake at the top is so peaceful, I even took a nap there. This trail has it all, with tons of cool artifacts along the way (log cabin ruins, mill supplies, etc). It gets really challenging toward the top. There's several other lakes, but you don't need to hike them all to feel accomplished. We just hiked to the one nearest to the first one.
