Beautiful views, the switchbacks allow you a fantastic view of the valley floor below you. We made frequent stops to take pictures. If you have the time pack your gear in and stay the night at the lake.

Great hike but tough initial ascent. Once you are there, you can get to many other worldly locations. Bring lots of water and wear shoes with good traction.

The trail (road) to Morgan Pass via the U.S. Vanadium tungsten mine is quite steep and presently is impassible at the 1.5 mile point. The trail is blocked by a rock slide that is quite risky to traverse. Additional rockslides make the trail impassable further up the canyon. In spite of the slides, the hike to the first rockslide (where I am sounding the vuvuzela) is impressive in spite of the grade. See the photos I have uploaded. As of the date of this writing, there are no plans by the Forest Service to reopen the trail to Morgan Pass. Any hike to Morgan Pass will have to be made from the Rock Creek Trail out of Tom's Place.

I was trying to get to Honeymoon Lake to fish, unfortunately the bridge was flooded out over Pine Creek and I couldn’t get past it. I Don’t think I would rate this as moderate much of the trail is extremely rocky due to avalanches. I would rate it as hard due to the number of switch backs that are difficult to walk due to the excessive rocky trails.

Nice hike! We did it in the spring time and all the lakes were still frozen but very scenic.

I go backpacking around here almost every year, and the Pine Creek Trailhead is one of the less crowded trails in the area. The first part of the hike is steep, with a quick elevation gain and a lot of switchbacks. It can get really hot and there's not much shade on the initial portion, so it's a good idea to bring a lot of water and start early. Once you get to about 10,000ft it's a pretty easy hike to Honeymoon lake. From Honeymoon, you can go on to Pine Creek, Italy pass, or a number of other lakes in the area!
