Beautiful hike, did it counter-clockwise. We hiked trail to Lake Ruth and back to Lofty Lake trail, added 1.4 m. Rugged in a few places up and down. Eat lunch at Lofty lake and seemed to stop every bend or rise to take pictures. With pics and lunch and Ruth: 5 hour hike for us.

amazing hike! many more lakes than listed in the description. it's about 3 hours home for me, without stopping for the views.

excellent loop trail. a bit steep in places, but just awesome! several more lakes are visible than are noted in the description. it's about a three hour hike for me, if I hadn't stopped to enjoy the view so often.

My favorite day hike I've found in the area so far. Mountain peaks, several lakes, and beautiful flowers. Less crowded in the morning. Easy to make it shorter by stopping at lakes along the way. I bring my dogs and they love it.

This was the perfect trail for a quick overnight backpacking trip--we left right after work and had camp set up by 730 pm. Lots of Lakes, mountains, and views. Definitely recommend counter clockwise but mostly because of the views.
