Nice hike. The first bit is a bit steep, but not rocky and easy to navigate. I just took my time. The lake is really pretty too, but you can't swim in it. :(

Went Saturday morning starting around 9 am. As we were coming back down around 10:30 there were a lot of people, so I would recommend going earlier or during the week! Very steep and difficult for a not very experienced hiker, it was definitely moderate for us! A tiny bit of frost, no snow yet. Bring a jacket!

This trail was a bit disappointing. I would say it is heavily trafficked, and part of the trail is a steep climb up a little creek. The rocks were wet and slippery. I'm glad I had my pole with me or I'd have twisted an ankle. A lot of people. Was hoping for a bit less, though most everyone we encountered was pleasant. Not a long trail but if you keep going, there's another lake another mile away? That is, if you can scale a mountain or jump 5 feet across and manage not to land on Lake Mary below you. We had to turn around. It seemed too risky to keep going.

This was only our third hike since moving to SLC. Each one gets better. Be sure to notice the aspen grove on the side of the mountain on the way up close to the beginning. They are just starting to turn golden. Lake Mary is a nice place to just sit after the hike. Great day!!

Loved this hike! The lake is beautiful! There were a lot of people on the trail which was the only drawback. Maybe hiking during the week or on Sunday would be better.

Beautiful lake! The hike itself was tough at the beginning, but it is definitely worth it.

I'm suprised this was ratted moderate. Although there are a couple of steep parts, it's pretty short! We went up on a Thursday afternoon and it was lovley! Very few other people. Iwas carring my 18 month old and it took us about an hour to get to the lake. So I'm sure if you're not carrying a thrashing child, you could do it way quicker! the chipmunks at the lake are really aggressive so obviously, do your best to keep crumbs away from them and HOLD all of your food! I had one steal my granola bar from under my leg! ☹ Obviously, it's a beautiful view and a place I'll definitely recommend to people traveling who need a short hike!
