A little muddy/ puddles across the trail due to heavy rain last night. Beautiful ponds and waterfall. There is also a cave with water at the top of the loop right before you head back down.

We parked at Hoosier Pass and the trailhead is to the right of the info signs. This was a wonderful kid-friendly hike. We took all four kiddos (7, 10, 12 and a 1 yr old in a carrier) up the left side of the loop and then up to the top. That little grassy "summit" is not part of the trail listed here, but it provides lovey views both north and south from the Continental Divide. We then came back down the small "ridge" and joined up with the loop below. The kids loved getting to walk right by some snow still on the ground. We would definitely hike it again!

Great, moderate hike with fantastic scenery - the only downfall is your trail is an old mining road. We took the short path to the lake and the direction we chose meant a steep incline to the top of a ridge.

Had a great time with my husband and two kids. 4 year old was able to walk and play most of the way until the steeper incline towards the top of the ridge. Beautiful stream and lake along the way. And loved all the different wildflowers. Great way to start the day !
