This is one of our favorite hikes. Along the way are a number of small lakes and ponds. Lamoille Lake, right before the approach to Liberty Pass was still frozen.
Finding the way up the pass was challenging because of all the snow. Our boots got definitely wet. We used micro spikes which helped a lot with traction.
The view of frozen Liberty Lake was breathtaking.

Non stop views of an absolutely stunning canyon until you reach liberty pass and have a birds-eye view of liberty lake. This hike shattered my stereotypes of Nevada.

You pass 2 lakes on the way to the saddle before you start to drop down to Liberty Lake. We ran oit of time but only made it to the saddle. We had a perfect view of liberty lake. Liberty Lake has an amazing blue-green tint. We sat at the saddle overlooking the Lake along with other ridges and peaks. Great hike.

If you climb up to the top of the peak on the left just as you reach Liberty Pass, you will have a view of 5 lakes - Liberty, Favre, Castle, Lamoille and Dollar Lakes.

Reached the pass above the lake in just under 90 minutes. Great views all around. Hit the trail early because I saw no one on the way up but ran into at least a dozen groups on the decent. Still small pockets of snow to be found.
