Phone read 7.39m in 2:06:38 with 1970ft of gain. I turned around right after Liberty Lake came into view did not go all the way down and back. Trail winds up to and by the first lakes before climbing out of the trees to the pass. View of Liberty is one of the best around.

Awesome burn in the legs. Beautiful hike. Pretty well traveled and popular hike. Made it to Liberty and back to the Lamoille Canyon turn around in just under 4 hours. We were moving pretty fast though.

Just took our boys 13, 11 and 9 yr olds up for an overnight camping trip and LOVED it! We were plenty tired but the hike is well worth the effort. The trail after Lamoille Lake is pretty much switch backs the entire way up but once you crest the top and see what you accomplished you'll see how worth it was. You literally are standing at the top of the world and the views are AMAZING. Liberty lake is crystal blue and beautifully set in the middle of the mountains. New favorite hike! definitely strenuous but doable

a great hike with fantastic views. There were a few snow fields to navigate, with the "hardest" one just above Lamoille Lake but still very doable even for this pair of 70+ years olds. One of favorite Nevada trails.

Gorgeous views! Bring a light jacket, even in August: the wind is quite chilly at the top of the pass.

Def worth the hike! Your breath will be stolen when you come across this lake after climbing through the rocky barren liberty pass. We also continued to Favre lake but it was a disappointment and we didn’t think it was worth the extra hiking time.

Hard to think of alpine lakes and meadows in Nevada but so similar to the Southern Alps. Refreshing after the torrid August desert and mornings are free of traffic which eventually builds up mid morning with friendly families and pets on leash. An alternative to the ubiquitous and obnoxious casino scene.

Hiked it yesterday. Beautiful every turn and not very traveled especially once over the pass. Trail conditions very great. a must hike if you head to the Ruby Mtns.

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.
