I have hiked to this lake many times, so would feel irresponsible if I didn’t say that to label this as a “Moderate” hike is misguiding to say the least. Nor is it a “trail” in any sense. If you are expecting a trail to take you from point A and follow it to Point B, you are mistaken. This is a “route” only. This route is for experienced hikers who know how to read a topographical map. It is very steep terrain, areas of loose scree, and sections of the trail where one wrong step you could fall a very long ways. So not for those afraid of heights. That being said it is truly one of my favorites. If you do venture in please remember to PACK IT IN, PACK IT OUT! and that the nearest hospital or emergency services are more than an hour away. Please don’t hike beyond you abilities.

Made it about halfway up to the saddle today and the snow was still 4 feet deep in places and we very easily lost visibility of the trail multiple times. I still believe the trail would be hard to follow without the snow.. Good thing I loaded the map before attempting this hike! We ran into a fish and game warden back at the campground and he said a woman had to be search and rescued last week from attempting this hike! He guessed another couple weeks at least until you will be able to make it to Mirror Lake. Still a beautiful area to check out!!

So when I read the other reviews of how steep and in some spots technical this trail is, I figured maybe they were exaggerating... they are not. It says “moderate” because of the length, but probably should be labeled “hard” due to the exposure in some places. We went on a cold, foggy, and rainy day so footing was a bit precarious at times. Couldn’t see much thanks to the fog, but I hear it’s beautiful lol!
