This is a very good "breaking in" trail to get the season started. Very pleasant trail with a variety of scenery, waterfalls forest, large meadows, rocky peaks, good wildflowers. The only bummer is that when you reach the lake it is accessible by an ATV trail on the other side. I camped one night at the lake and only 1 motor cycle passed in the distance though. There's a table in a campsite there plau for more primitive sites walk half-way around the east side. The lake is more beautiful than the pix in various guide books as those pix only show the west peaks. The photo on this page shows the east peaks.

We hiked in the middle of October & the colours were incredible. We went all the way into Gallagher Lake & it was round trip a 5 hour hike. Lots of cars in the parking lot, but barely saw anyone on the trail. Lots of creeks for the dogs to drink. Cant wait to do it again in the Spring.
