Great views! 6 to 6.5 miles to Turquoise Lake. Many huckleberries along the trail. The switchbacks are pretty gradual as you head up. Lots of goats!! Thunderstormed all night long, but waking up in such a beautiful place made it all worth it.

Hiked in Friday night of 4th o July weekend. Actually about 6.5 miles in. Hike is beautiful the entire way. Great overlook of Glacier Lake.

While everyone is enamored with Turquoise and Lace lakes, Lagoon Lake is incredibly overlooked. Camp sites are available at Turquoise and Lace Lake however they are right on the trail and not very private. More seclusion is available at SW corner of Lagoon Lake. Be prepared for a lot of mosquitos and a lot of mountain goats. Weather was beautiful so slept with rain fly off and got to watch the mountain goats all night long come up 5 feet from tent.
