Great place to visit. Beautiful hike almost the whole way. Great places to stop on the way in. Not overcrowded. Great lakes to fish in. Make sure you bring your rod, don't forget to stop at Carolyn and catch as many arctic graylings as your heart desires.

Well maintained trail. Relatively easy, just long. Absolutely amazing scenery and views. There were very few people on the trail, especially for Labor Day. I will definitely do this one again. It is worth the full day trek.

Went up with the scouts and had a blast fishing and enjoying the view. Caught larger fish in Daynes lake :)

Great hike. I'd recommend starting at the upper trailhead (not mirror lake) -- shaved a few of the more crowded miles off.

Nice Basin with 4 lakes to choose from. Just far enough away from the trail-head to avoid most of the crowds

Love this Trail. It makes a good out and back or a loop. There are lots of options. In mid-June, I did not encounter any bugs in the basin. I'm sure later on in the summer there will be more then plenty to annoy. This area has plenty of camping options so do your best to practice leave no trace camping to keep your secret spot safe.
I made this into a much longer loop then listed in AllTrails. I added a day hike to Grand Daddy Lake and back up to Naturalist Basin.
