Still some snow patches. We lost the trail a few times going to the second lake, but eventually found it. Beautiful scenery.

Great trail, bit of a long drive to get to. Starts out going up right away, about 2 hours to 1st lake. Probably one of the prettiest settings in the valley.

Loved this trail, easy enough to do with the kids. Next time I will do the loop & go to Carter Lake from the top. Bring a rain jacket.
