I hiked here a few weeks ago. There was a decent amount of snow, but it was easy running on it with my yak trax. It was my first hike in the enchantments and it was so beautiful. It looked like Narnia. Can't wait to come back and check out other trails.

Thankfully got an early start 8/13/16, because it gets HOT. Keeping it real, this isn't the easiest hike for beginners BUT it's doable with breaks and worth it. I haven't hiked in awhile so my favorite parts were reaching the top and then of course the bottom;) The views are incredible -- pack a light picnic to enjoy before heading back down (+ a fly swatter). Beware of super dusty and rocky trail (watch footing on descend). NOTE: the 2-3 mile gravel road up/down to the trailhead is AWFUL on your car.

No dogs allowed on this trail! The gravel road to the trailhead needs to be graded so it's best to tackle it with a high clearance vehicle.

Fun easy hike. Beautiful all the way up. Steepest climb out of trailhead then a nice steady ascent all the way to lake. Had a one snd a half year old on my back and a five months pregnant wife. We all enjoyed ourselves.

Beautiful day! Lots of wild flowers and views. Busy weekend in town and a heavily used trail.
Started at 1100-stopped to record and take a picture of many flowers and views. . Ground squirrels, deer, variety of birds. Arrived at eight Mile lake at 100. Sat on rocks for lunch. Ate with the mosquitoes. Left at 230, return to parking lot at 415.
