Hiked this trail on Nov 3 and there was boot packed snow all the way. It’s not very strenuous but micro spikes / crampons and poles are highly recommended as the trail gets a bit slippery in places. It was also very busy (Saturday) and parking not easy to find. The views were pretty when clouds and snow subsided. Definitely worth checking off the list!

very nice hike, tons of people but when you go up high they disappear quick. Big views, beautiful lakes and two elk and several deer. Plus, there were several Greenbacks in the lakes doing very well.

- This hike is two different trails. It's a double out and back.
- (done in summer time) can't really see Tyndall Glacier from here. Need to take the Flattop trail instead
- If you want to avoid people go before 7am. Families/crowds hit the trail head between 7-9. Personally I like to enjoy the scenery in peace n quiet
- When you go left (Towards Dream lake) it's a well maintained trail that isn't too challenging. I would definitely take my 60 year old out of shape dad on this trail! I would rate it moderate because there is a little bit of vertical gain. You get to see three lakes! They're beautiful. HIGHLY recommend sunrise and the Golden Hour for this home
- If you go right (towards Bear lake) it's more of a walking trail around the lake with other trails off of it

Beautiful hike and all the lakes are different! We started at the Bear Lake parking (take the free shuttle... way easier than getting there at 6:30AM to find a parking spot). Add Bear Lake to the hike so you get 5 lakes in about 6.5 miles with easy to moderate difficulty.

If this is your mile limit, than it's a good choice. You could do another day and go up to mills lake maybe?
