Incredible, the whole hike was just one beautiful turn after another. As others have said, the last stint up to sky lake is a bit tough. prepare to rock scramble a little, and then head up a steep grade with a bit of a waterfall beside you. Have good boots, and a pole to help with that part. Tons of wildlife, the marmots were especially active.

Very beautiful hike. It does get difficult as you get towards the top but very much worth it!

Great hike, particularly at the end. Sky Pond is well worth the climb at the end.

Awesome hike! Countless wildlife and wildflowers. You hike through several types of environments with forest, meadow, cliffs, waterfalls, river, lakes and more. Loved this hike!

This trail is beautiful! Does have a good tough incline towards the lake, with a short rock climb at the falls to get to sky pond. Highly recommend though, pretty amazing views!!
