This is a great little backpacking spot away from the crowds of I-90 and Highway 2. We went on the Sunday of Memorial Day weekend, and only had one other person also camping at the big lake. The hike up is flat part of the way, until you get to switchbacks which give you a nice workout. The trail then levels out about a quarter mile from the little lake. Campsites have fire pits, which is great. Lakes are beautiful. Road to the trailhead can be driven by literally and car. I would say this is a perfect backpacking trip for beginners or anyone that just wants a simple weekend in the woods.
