It’s a tatti hike - not at all a great view

Great trail that requires some but not a lot of ground clearance. Great views and fun trail that requires just a tad bit of technical ability. Took us about 3 hours round trip with a 35 min stop at the lake and a few spots for pictures.

great easy trail. well marked and maintained. little sandy and rocky in places and totally dry in mid-October

Beautiful, didn’t go all the way to the lake because it was getting dark.

The first part of the description is incorrect. The trailhead is not at the campground, you pass the campground and shortly the pavement ends, continue on, less than a mile to a paved parking lot. This is an exceptional hike, great, easy access to stunning beauty.

Great views of the minarets & Mammoth mountain. Easy hike anyone can do it.

The best of Sierra!

My Husband and I did this hike in summer 2016 (Didn’t have the AllTrails App then but reviewing now) and it was actually one of the very first hikes I did. Was definitely a hike up but once you get to the end where it is open the trail was not maintained and pretty nerve racking. Heights doesn’t worry me as much of the thought that I might lose my footing then slip and fall. If you have a fear of heights this may not be for you but it’s definitely doable and SO WORTH it. This might be the best view ever from the where the sign is at the top. I want to say we did the whole hike in about 3hrs with taking a break at the top. A good ‘shorter hike’.

The trail is very intuitive over the pass. So many breathtaking views and sights! Duck Lake has stunning hues of blues and turquoise!

This was a solid day hike we completed on 10/11/19. The views and scenery on this hike are wonderful! Lots of vibrant colors and stunning views. The trail had at least 5 water crossings which was water flowing down the hill and over and through the trail. These crossing were often partially frozen and created beautiful icicles. What I loved about this hike were the leaves changing to fall colors, colorful and plentiful flowers, cool rock formations, great views and the lakes are a jewel! Below is a link to the one day trip! https://youtu.be/ioi05J3rduE

Convict Lake is a photographer's paradise. The view of the lake, the aspen trees and mountains is phenomenal.The back story on how it got its name is entertaining as well.

It's a short hike to a fantastic small lake area that is surrounded with sand and forest. A great picnic spot.

Stay to the left bordering Lake Mary, my husband and I veared off to the right and got off trail. Its a beautiful view of lake Mary as you ascend and at the top Crystal lake is beautiful.

Easy scenic hike. Upper end of lake nice with Aspen groves and rocky beaches.

Just finished this trail at 5:43pm on 10/12/19. Just starting to get dark. Beautiful trail with a variety of manzanita, rocks, pine trees, aspen, cottonwood and willows. etc. Went to see the fall colors. Beautiful golden aspens around the lake. We will do this again. God created another masterpiece here.

Beautiful trail and the fall colors are coming out. We camped ¾ of the way up and it was all good. There’s a campsite at both valentine and sherwin lakes so it’s pretty easy to find a place to put up for the night. The only reason I didn’t give it 5 stars is cause my watch recorded 10.4mi round trip.

Well maintained trail to beautiful lake. We got there around 3pm so a bit windy/chilly on the lake and in the shade on the way down. No bugs at this late date a plus.

This is one of the most beautiful fall hikes we’ve encountered. This is our second time out and it didn’t disappoint. The beginning of the hike is across a meadow about a mile into the canyon. The trees get even more beautiful once you get inside Canyon. You’ve got to cross the creek which appears to be washed out but it’s not. There are two crossings: one made of trees which is easier to climb out of, and one with a bridge which is difficult to crawl out of but easier to cross back. The next section is beautiful, you’ll pass what looks Like is used to be a lake but now is an amazing display of beaver dams. Finally you’ll reach another creek crossing with easy bridge. This is a good stopping point around 3.5-4 miles. Or, you climb up a steep set of switchbacks another 1-1.5 miles to a beautiful serene mountain lake. I made the trek last year but got altitude sickness and decided not to this year. It’s about 10,000 feet elevation. Well worth it if you’re fit.

Fantastic views and great exercise for something that’s so accessible and short.

Beautiful trail! Easy walk around the lake with spots to fish. We caught some trout on our way along the trail. It’s a flat trail for the most part and awesome views of the falls colors with all the aspen trees.

The trails have some shading, but it gets warm when the sun is out. Beautiful waterfall to reward your hike.
