can hear the creek for most of the hike. July hike and snow started about 4 miles in. would not rate moderate, rather gentle incline. More of Easy trail. lake is spectacular. will hike again.

Mod- hard trail! I felt like getting there to both lake was the hardest! Total 12 miles in and out trail! Rainy day! And snow on the trail! It was still an awesome hike!

took this train in early- mid September and only a few other hikers on the trail. we had Lake Harriette to ourselves and it was completely beautiful! Lake Como was an amazing turquoise!
the uphill all the way to Harriette is an awesome workout. will definitely do this trail again. just about 8 downed trees to climb over or go around...pretty clear.

Great hike! Little confusing to get to trail head. But basically you turn off on a dirt road from 140. Go down a mile or so before turning left at the signs. Then, turn right when you can. There's a stop sign on the right. Take that to the top where there's a trailhead sign. We just went to where the loop around the lake began and back. 8.8 miles.

One of the loveliest hikes I have done in Southern Oregon. I can't wait to do the whole Mountain Lakes Loop.

The trail was very dry and narrow so I kept my dog in front of me to avoid kicking dirt into his face. Definitely provides a full day of hiking. Extremely peaceful once you reach the beautiful mountain lake! Pack plenty of water!
