My wife and I hiked up to Turquoise Lake with our 9 month old in tow and it was an excellent hike. Amazing sights of the Swans and also the Missions. We hiked in mid July and there are some spots along the switch backs that bring you above Glacier Lake where you can see the rock slabs where you will find Lagoon Lake and Turquoise Lake. The hike has a consistent incline which made it a good burn of you are carrying gear for an overnight trip. Once you get to the top the final descent leads you to the lakes. Lots of bug hatches for the ones going up with a fly rod. Would definitely recommend going up above for a longer multi day camping trip to Lone Tree Pass.
