I hiked this in August. We backpacked in and camped at Mirror Lake. It was absolutely gorgeous. There were a number of people camping at the lake, but the trail was very quiet the majority of the hike. Be prepared for thunder storms as we encountered a few during our 4 days. There are some pretty steep areas of elevation gain for the first couple miles and then again just before reaching the lake. In between, however, there is a long beautiful stretch of relatively flat hiking through the valley before the lakes.

Best views I've ever seen. West Fork Lostine trail to Moccasin Lake. Set up camp and walk the loop to all the other lakes. Great views of the Matterhorn. Day two wake up early and summit Eagle Cap. You will not be sorry. On the way back cross the divide and see a whole new set of lakes. Hike out through East Fork Lostine. Surreal...
