Awesome hike. Road getting there can be a little rough in spots, recommend bringing an SUV or truck for that extra ground clearance (my Subi Impreza did just fine though). Hike is nice and moderate, a little steep the last mile or so but it's worth it once you get to the lakes. Really gorgeous, lots of little lakes in the area you could probably spend a day or two just exploring. I regret not bringing my fly rod! The trout were feeding like crazy in the Trask lakes. Completed August 2016.

We did this as a backpacking overnighter. The first 2 miles are pretty swampy but after that it is only swampy in a couple of places. The lakes are gorgeous and no snow to mention left around the lakes. Several campsites to choose from.

Really beautiful spot! Just backpacked up to lower Trask lake for one night. It's decently snowy up there still but there are dry spots for a tent. The trail to get up there is prrrrretty swampy however, so if you're heading up, be prepared for soggy feet.
