Heavily trafficked is an understatement! But the lake and views is amazing.

Definitely moderate. The entire stretch from Silver Lake to Twin Lake is uphill and rocky. Twin Lake itself isn't super big, but it has a beautiful view.

Started at Silver Lake, then on to Solitude Lake, then on to Twin Lakes for 3.8 miles in about an hour and a half moving time and 994 elevation change for these two 60-ish out of shape folks. The climb down from Twin Lakes was less pleasant than the other 2.5 miles; we will just reverse next time. Sights above Twin Lakes were great, the views and vistas between Twin Lakes and Solitude Lake awesome.

Beautiful trail. Our group saw Moose, marmots and squirrels. Short hike, perfect for the shortening evenings of late summer. Altitude may bother you if you haven't hiked the are before. But nice, short, after-work challenge.
