My father took me when I was younger. Great hike and camp site on the spit that divides upper and lower Robin lakes. Caught fish with bare hands on the creek that joins robin lakes, a trip I will never forget.

This trail is definitely not moderate, strenuous, arduous, difficult, and at times relentless. Bring lots of water, tuck lake is a beautiful lake, but nothing compared to how majestic Robin lakes are. Once you get to Tuck lake you either have the choice take the trail to your right which leads up that middle ridge in between tuck lake. Or to your left which takes you up to Robin lakes through granite Mountain i recommend going up on the left side of Tuck lake. Keep left then you will cross a small creek then continue and you will see a rocky ridge that's where you're hike begins to Robins lake through Granite mountain. ( breathless views) through that trail to Robins. On your way back down take the other trail allot easier and safer then going down on granite for a mile and a half. Enjoy hopefully my advise helps.

Boyd Massie's review is spot on, but you'd better be in shape to do this hike, as it is more a "climb" then a hike. The scenery is well worth it though. Some of the prettiest country around. Kind of hard to find the "trail" up to Robin Lake though. It is marked with cairns, but there are lots of little off-shoot trails that can lead a hiker astray quite easily.
