Wide, well-worn trail, but has so many rocks and roots. It’s an ankle breaker if you’re not careful! Once we passed Talapus Lake, the mud/puddles/snow increased. My sons had tennis shoes on they got a little wet and dirty, but if you have waterproof boots, you’ll barely notice it. You’ll need a recreation pass or $5 to pay on site.

Did this hike on a Saturday morning - 20 cars parked by 830am. Tripled to quadrupled by time we left at 11am!

Well maintained trails, some parts under renovation, that meander through switchbacks and along the two lakes. I personally liked Talapus Lake better - bigger and more picturesque. The hubs liked Ollalie better - less people.

This hike is super doable for all ages and fitness levels. I'm not sure how AllTrails ranks hikes but I'd say this one is more an "easy" or "easy-moderate" hike, not a "moderate" hike. I'd come back, next time with my inflatable SUP!
