This was a fairly steep hike but the view from the top of Lake Martha and Lake Mary was surreal. It got very windy up at the top near Lake Catherine so make sure you have your jackets and beanie with you. I have posted a video of our hike on IG- travelove_dance

Beautiful and not overcrowded. I passed just enough people where I wasn’t completely alone but a lot of the time no one else was on the trail.

prettiest trail run I've done in Utah. Some shades but a lot of exposure throughout the 8 mile trail. Also, it gets crowded on weekends. Bring a mask!

Best early for no people and general gorgeousness. Water overflows the trail in parts and that plus flooded meadows and the lakes = bugs.

Did as a loop starting at the Milly lift over past twin lakes and twin lakes pass; down to Albion basin; then to the trail over the pass by Catherine and down. The stunning views are mostly behind you as you climb but it's a nice trail and worthwhile. The climb isnt really bad at all.

3 Star because The trailhead location is mis-marked in AllTrails. If you use the “directions “ function in AllTrails it directs you to the Catherine pass trailhead above Alta. This is the incorrect location as you need to start this trailhead at Brighton. The hike from the Catherine pass trailhead is much shorter roughly 1.5 miles to the top of the pass . At that point you can go back down to Catherine and Mary lake but you are doing the trail backwards.

Went in the fall after the drought. Expected to see a lake, not a few ponds. Saw pictures from this year where the lake is filled up again and looks pretty

Good moderate hike. We camped at Lake Mary. I don't think they allow swimming here though. Still enjoyed the sights, though!
