Gorgeous! Still a bit snowy, but manageable.

The destination is the reward! My wife and I took our two boys (8 & 6) on this hike. The trail was hard to find at times, but there was a steady (not heavy) bit of traffic to help lead the way. The boys complained a little, but nothing major. Be aware that even in mid June there is still a good bit of snow to traverse, so wear good water resistant hiking shoes/boots with traction. Also, I would recommend wearing clothes that you are not scared to get dirty because this is not some leisurely well-beaten path. There is some climbing (and falling!) involved.

The best part was the view at the end! Since we have been in Utah, we have gone to Bryce and Dinosaur National, but my wife said the Lake Mary was the most beautiful thing we have seen here.

Great little hike. About 2 miles round trip starting from Brighton Lodge's parking lot. Steeper than it looks, so great cardio! Beautiful views from the rock ledges up by the lake. In June the lake was still partially frozen over. Made for a pretty view. Great afternoon hike!

Fun hike but today, June 10, 2017, there was still quite a bit of snow and the majority of the lake was still frozen. However, it was beautiful and perfect hiking weather.

Beautiful hike on snowshoes. After hiking up through the Brighton ski runs on the far right side, we cut off to head over to the lake. Once we got past where the skiers tracks ended (for the out of bound skiers) we had to make our own trail. It was a great workout and absolutely beautiful!
