Hiked this trail early October. Tough fishing at Duck Lake but awesome scenery.

Beautiful hike! Easy terrain in a breath taking location . Great place to take the family and spend a bit of quality time.

Great trail, not too steep but not flat. At the end you will find a beautiful frozen lake. Best part is there is very light traffic.

A beautiful hike!

We parked at Lake George, the campground was closed. The hike takes you along Lake George, crosses a stream and steadily climbs until you reach gorgeous Barrett Lake. We turned around here but you can continue to the next lake.

Great easy hike for the family and kids. Great swim by the waterfall depending the on water level

I picked up the trail at the welcome center and went through the vacant campground - the trail is not marked well at all. I turned around and went back.

the first mile is pretty much uphill on soft drift/sand. it starts of at low elevation and as you climb you get higher and higher. I only made it 1.53 miles in and had to turn around to meet a friend in town. but the last half mile made the first mile worth it!! some ice and snow on the ground. so watch your step.

Hike is so worth the constant switchbacks (which did seem like forever but it ends I swear!)

Great views on the way up with both Lava Tube and Seven Lakes Point for rest stops. It gets really windy at the top and there were a couple of areas where I got nervous about the narrow trail/cliff edges. Alternate option down is to loop around the Seven Lakes Trail.

Beautiful easy hike! Highly recommend

I want to spread my ashes here. That's how beautiful it is.

Hiked about 2 miles past Sherwin Lakes. We used this hike to acclimate to the area before doing a much longer hike the next day. It was a beautiful hike on this Fall day.

easy trail, great views

Very beautiful in fall, easy hike~

A Picture is worth a thousand words..but real life is priceless. Seeing pics of DPP does nothing for being there in real life. :)
Lots of trails to branch off and choose your route..but it all eventually heads back to the parking lot. Some hills...but most pretty easy to navigate. There are a few spots with steep steps.
Camp style bathrooms in parking lot. Road curvy & fairly narrow..suggest leaving the trailer at home.
Lots of great photo opps in road & hiking trail.

One star because you suck at the internet?
