Awesome trail! Put my three year old in the osprey and hiked to Emerald Lake. My body is shot but it was totally worth it. Three waterfalls, ice patches, green fields, mountain goats, and a beautiful lake waiting for you at the top. Hike is not too dangerous. Just requires a LOT of effort and will power. Especially with kids on your back. If you're afraid of the ice patches and walking over them, we walked around them just fine today without polls. Weather was great and the mountain goats are worth to look. They swam very cool with humans up there. Don't mess with them and they won't mess with you. They walked within 15 yards of us. It's late July and there is certainly still ice on the path. Be aware and respect the ice I'd suggest.
