Amazing hike! There were a lot of people at Alice Lake but we were still able to get a great camp site with a little exploration.

Pettit to Alice is only about 10 km but 500 pm climb, so good workout. Stunning views and impressive mosquitos! Countless campsites along the lake and all are beautiful.

This is a stellar hike. You will share the trail with others but pay no mind. You will love the view and never forget it. The only thing I will add is that Alltrails has a very poor mileage system, this trail being an example. The mileage points are arbitrary so be aware. The hike from trailhead to Alice lake is actually just over 6 miles. You can see this looking closely at the mapping but just a heads up. The view from Alice lake includes a very foreboding El Capitan, reminiscent of the Wind Rivers, and a ridgeline that resembles the ranges namesake, Sawtooth. The place is magical. Don't start late like we did, as we ended up with about 40 minutes at the lake. We got back to the car at dark.

Truly stunning! We did this as a day trip, and I wish we would have stayed a night or two up at Alice Lake — plenty of little secluded spots to camp. The incline was gradual, though make sure to pack really sturdy hiking boots (with ankle support) since the hike is very rocky (it is the sawtooths, after all). Definitely planning to come back!

Did the hike on June 2nd, 2018. There was about 4 feet of lightly packed snow during the last mile up to Alice lake, which was our destination. That made the hike challenging for this time of year but definitely hikeable! I highly recommend the challenge!
