This was a beautiful hike filled with wildflowers, numerous water crossings, and two beautiful lakes at the top. I'm surprised this hike is rated as easy because the first half of the hike is a steady incline and you gain more that 1500ft in a few miles. With that said, it was well worth the effort. The second lake was absolutely stunning.

Only a little bit of snow to the left of the first lake and between the second and third lakes. Definitely make a trip to the top one--even if a trail isn't apparent, you can tell where things are based on waterfalls. Saw foxes and marmots along the way.

Beautiful hike. About 8 miles round trip. Make sure to hike to the upper lake after enjoying the lower. It's worth the extra half mile or so
