Beautiful trail, fairly easy (if used to the altitude).

Trail was well marked and not difficult or maybe we are just getting acclimated. Beautiful aspen groves that will be gorgeous in about two weeks. Some are just starting to turn gold. There were moose close to Silver Lake and fortunately there was someone there to guide us away as the bull was a little aggressive due to the approaching mating season. Got a glimpse of them but not good enough to photo.

Saw a moose near Silver Lake! And the best part was, people were keeping a respectful distance and not harassing it.

Super easy hike up to Lake Solitude. We chose to continue to hike over to Twin Lakes. Would probably do Twin Lakes to Lake Solitude next time.

The aspens at the beginning of this hike are so amazing! The rest of the hike is nice, but not all that exciting. The lake was a little lackluster to be honest. Still nice, but I don't think I would do this one again. There are others I like more. I gave this 4 stars because the trail is well maintained and there are signs everywhere, so you cannot get lost.

Nice circular hike to the lakes on the Brighton - Solitude border. Parked at Sliver Lake where we first walked the boardwalk and saw a moose! Then up the trail from there.
