From Kamas, take the Mirror Lake Highway (Highway 150) 27 miles to Trial Lake Campground. Exit left (west) onto a paved road, and travel about a mile to a fork in the road. Then turn right (north) for another mile to the Crystal Lakes trailhead.

Absolutely gorgeous hike. We used this trail to take our kids on their first real backpacking trip. Youngest is 5 and she did great. I docked a star because heavily trafficked is an understatement. There was a point where it felt like we were in a backcountry KOA. Super busy on the weekends and huge families with loud kids were everywhere. Not the place to go if you're seeking solitude and silence.

The views were great. there isn't really a trail up to the top of the three divide lakes so we got a little lost. The parking lot was very full and you are supposed to pay for a recreation pass that is on the road prior to turning into the parking lot area.

This trail is great for all skill levels. I believe we may have actually done the 17 Lakes Loop as that is how many lakes we saw. This trail is stunning.

This is an amazing beginner trail. We chose to complete this loop for my 5 yr old son's first backpacking experience.

I did this hike strung together with a few others early spring. I recommend taking traction aids if there is snow and the temp are cold at night.

Did the full loop on a single night backpacking trip. Spent the night in between the 1st and 2nd divide lakes. Trails was off and on snow covered, especially on the northern facing slopes and between Clyde and Watson lakes. Where there wasn't snow, their was a fair amount of mud from the melting snow. Beautiful area, lots to see and do, but the fish were not too cooperative :-).
