Great hike! Challenging inclines but all worth the stunning views of both lakes at the top!

This was our "warm up" hike for Elbert the following day. Very nice hike. Enjoyed relaxing by the lake!

Great hike! Very steep, but perfect if you're looking for a quick hike to do. Little slippery at points due to mud and snow at the time we went! Overall, would recommend! :)

We (husband, dog and I) hiked this trail yesterday, and due to some extra walking around the lake hiked more like 3.5 miles. The hike is short but steep. It was cool at the lake but wasn't too windy. I would do it again!

Man that trail was a beast. You do all that elevation in about .5 a mile. Decent fishing. I'd totally do it again

GOING WAS FINE UNTIL WE REACH THE TRAIL GOING TO STEEP AND TURNED AROUND. BUT IF I HAD CHECKED THE HIKE OUT FIRST ON THE ENET. WOULD HAVE KNOWN WE WERE ALMOST TO THE TOP.

Beautiful hike, with a very steep/challenging incline. We took several breaks to catch our breath, but it was pretty short and very doable. We took our 9 year old and he was able to traverse with us. At the top there are two lakes - one small and just past it a much bigger one. We fished in the larger lake. We saw people of all ages out fishing, camping and hiking around the lake.
