This trail is awesome! So much beauty to see. I plan to go back and camp so we can explore more.

Go early to beat the rush.

You will not regret doing this hike. The lower Lake is beautiful but I wouldn't stop there, the upper lake is worth the extra hike! We saw mountain goat at the upper lake.

Hiked this on August 2 and it was really amazing!! We got caught in two brief hail/rains and even rode out the second one in the abandoned cabin near the waterfall. My family made memories today we will never forget!
