Did this hike with my wife in 2013. Awesome views. We went from Harrison Pass to S Smith creek first day. To Overland Lake second day and stayed there to relax an extra day. To Favre Lake after that and then out the last day. From overland to Favre was by far the toughest stretch. I think 13 mikes or so. 11 miles without water. Gorgeous.

Amazing trail! Great camping spots, access to water (will need to filtered of course) and beautiful views. Hiked south to north, and loved it.

Awesome! Be prepared: bring a water filtration pump, extra food, etc. There is a ~11mile stretch without water between overland lake and Favre. We did this in 2.5 days and 2 nights and it was a bit rushed. Bring good hiking buddies
