Extremely enjoyable. Not for those with chest pain or chain smokers. Great trail

We day hiked from base camp at Mirror lake, down the Cold Creek Trail to Twin Lakes, then up to Mount Catherine and back on the PCT to Mirror. The hike from Mirror to Twin Lakes was super steep, and tons of downed trees. Very slow going. The trail back up to the Mt. Catherine trailhead was much better. BTW, check the WTA site or a GreenTrails map for updated trails as All-trails doesn't show the proper route to Mt Catherine.

Unfortunately when I went it was too foggy to see the lakes, but I'd definitely recommend this hike!! Super beautiful and not too hard
