One of my favorite overnight hikes! We took our two children 8 and 11 last year on Father’s Day weekend! There is a brutal climb about 4 miles in. Was very quiet as the road was closed. We had to use logging roads to get to the trailhead! Hit snow at about 5 miles up and didn’t have GPS so set up camp. Didn’t make it to the lakes but it was a Beautiful hike! I want to go back! Plenty of shade and creek crossings and beautiful scenery!
