Great family hike. The lakes are stunning personally I like talapus better than. Ollalie. The trail is well maintained and also is great for backpacking and fishing

Great hike to both lakes! My dog enjoyed a swim in Ollalie lake before heading back down. The switchbacks are a nice steady incline with great scenery. We got there T 8:30 and there was already a lot of cars but the WTA was also doing trail work so the volunteers were there. Still several people on the trail - not too heavy but we did pass quite a few hikers. Don't forget to pay the forestry use fee.

Excellent hike- steady climb but no part particularly steep. Well maintained -busy but not overly crazy. Got to trailhead at 8:30 on a Saturday am. Some bugs- more by lakes but not unbearable. Just lovely all the way up.

i hiked talapus and olallie lake and i must say Talapus was decent and olallie was not worth the extra mile or so. extremely short hike and very easy to walk.

Fun, short hike! Perfect to do early in the morning on a weekday - I only encountered a handful of people. I agree with many of the other hikers that this trail is on the easier side. The grade is pretty mild the whole time. It took me 2 hours total to visit each lake, including time spent exploring around Olallie Lake. (That doesn't include time just lounging though!)
