Incredible hike! We completed this as a long day hike, which was certainly doable, although a bit much for one day (adding in time at the Twin Lakes for fishing). We will probably pack in and camp next time. The hike is definitely longer than 10.3 RT. Not counting a slight detour where we lost the trail briefly, my tracker showed 6.25-6.5 miles in, making for over 12 miles RT. The hike in took us right around 3 hours including some stops for snacks. It is definitely work the trek, as the Lost Lakes are absolutely incredible and the meadows along the way are stunning as well. Keep an eye out for moose, and be sure to bring your fishing gear... These lakes (esp Lost Lakes) are teeming with some good sized trout!
