Mosquitoes were brutal this weekend. Nice viewpoint into the valley about a 1 1/2 miles from the TH. Trail is overgrown in several sections around the lake.

I came out here expecting a HARD hike. I'd rate it a lot more on the side of moderate. The trail map and details listed here are only half the hike, to the creek crossing, which is very high this time of year and not something you can rock hop or wade. Just go about 100 feet upstream and cross on the downed trees, they're a perfect gift from nature. A few avalanche slopes to cross but there's little snow remaining, maybe a foot, and the trail was a little less than obvious to find at times, but still not anything I'd call really hard. Consult a map or GPS unless you have super tracking skills, especially if this is the only resource you're using. Had the trail to ourselves except a few deer and a coyote, and heard some rocks falling in the distance. Anyone else in the area was there to fish White river. Nice hike.

This trail is superrrrr hard to find but worth the search. I went and saw not a single sole. Me and my dog had the whole trail to ourselves. About half of the trail is overgrown so you can't be afraid of to almost bush whack your way to the lakes. There is also not a very good spot to go swimming on either lake. This hike is hard... A lot harder than what I thought.

Twin Lakes...8 miles out and back with about 2000 feet elevation change. Would rate on the easier side of hard or the more difficult side of medium. Colors are out now but not at peak. Nice spot for lunch at the first lake. Saw three other groups today. Worth the trip. Trail a bit overgrown in spots.

bring lots of water, and your bathing suit. we did this hike randomly today and had an amazing time. the second lake is worth hiking too but there was not as easy swim access. hiking boots required.

Pleasant hike through old growth forest, very green and lush. Kids will enjoy it too! Lakes are not open for fishing however, so if your an angler, choose a different hike.

This is a good out and back day hike, the trail stars off with a 200ft climb and then follows the river for a few miles to gradually follow the valley up to the first of two alpine lakes, the trail is in mostly good shape and the lakes are stunning.
