Beautiful hike, lots of photo ops and lunch spots. I would classify this more of a moderate hike for those new to the area, the first part to Lake Mary had me puffing a bit. I made the mistake of taking the right branch at the fork after Lake Martha and ended up above Lake Catherine...very pretty, so worth the mistake.
