We planned to hike to Rawah lake 1. Around mile 6 there was quite a bit of snow to hike through. At mile 7 the ground was swampy and covered in water. The trail was covered in snow and hard to navigate. We ended up turning around and camping down the trail further.

This trail is beautiful, there was a washout at the very beginning of the trail next to the lodge. Be prepared to get a little muddy. Some wet spots throughout the trail but easy to maneuver around. Bring bug spray as the mosquitoes are horrible. We forgot ours so didn’t hike as far as we would have liked. We will be back!!!

Hiked this to Lost Lake this weekend. The worst snow was around 10,300 ft in the mile leading up to Lost Lake, but not enough to warrant snowshoes or micro spikes. Make sure to bring waterproof boots and bug spray for the next few weeks. The mosquitoes were vicious.

Twin craters lakes. Tough hike with pretty severe water crossings but the lakes were worth it. Take a look at my pics and GPX file.

the first several miles are pretty steep then it levels out à bit with many miles of stunning alpine lakes stand and summiting opportunities perfect for camping and hiking and the are tons of brookies in the crystal clear streams. there are large trout in the pond and lakes
