Absolutely beautiful

The mileage is more like 12 miles from Echo lake to Summit Lake. It’s absolutely beautiful. If you take this route, the last mile is a difficult steep incline so save your energy and water for it.

Very cool to see, smell, and learn more about the bristle cone pines! Would highly recommend stopping here

Fun trail went up Saxon then down cascade creek. Very bumpy trail with a few tight spots. Iced out road was an issue. We were lucky to have someone on the other side to help us across.

Was trying for the next lake but couldn't do it after a night shift. However, Naylor lake was GORGEOUS! Following the trail to the second lake (Silver Dollar Lake) gets you to amazing views of Naylor Lake. Snow won't allow you to drive to trailhead though so its a bit longer than listed.

was a fun easy. hike to the lake unfortunately you can't actually get to the lake do to private property and no trespassing but breath taking views

These Lakes were gorgeous and the wild flowers were amazing as I went 08-23-17. We got hailed on a little but it was well worth the hike. My Friend that was new to hiking did not make it to the last lake but I showed her the pictures (not the same).

I took this route on the way down, from Cascade Creek went to the peak of the mountain turned around then went to goerge town. Had to cross a Iced out road, Lil sketchy, then the route down the mountain, was close call coming within inches of a sheer cliff, making it exciting as ever. Dont take a wide vehicle on this people.

it was awesome

Short and sweet. Probably wouldn’t make the trip from Denver just for this hike because it was pretty short, but would be great if hitting a couple of hikes in this area. I would rate this hike as easy. Snow makes portions slippery and it’s much colder by the water. You will need layers and gloves. Took about an hour from lake to reservoir.

great trail network follow the dotted black line at the split on the map if your lifted it brings u up along and a good portion through the river with more challenging obstacles all peaks are snow packed I couldn't make it on a 4inch long arm kit with good tires

Great little trail with beautiful views. The trail isn’t technically challenging, but there are some narrow spots if you go off the main path (which is recommended). Air down your tires before you take this path.
I’d recommend this as a perfect summer trail.
Jeep Rubicon.

This isn't argentine pass.

Came down this trail after going up to Saxon from cascade creek trail. 2015 power wagon on Toyo 35s down to about 40. Got some body damage from a too tight squeeze. Going to try again from Georgetown. Fun trail. Pushed my limits.

Fall is coming, gorgeous views! Fun trail, with some narrow paths, but nothing too technical.

Great trail. A bit too rocky at the beginning, I did it in my stock 4runner TE with no issues though. Very rewarding views at the top.

The first few miles has pretty views and it's fun. After that the road just gets narrower and the cliffs higher, still pretty unless you are afraid of heights. I used a spotter a couple of times when I had to go around boulders where the road narrowed. I only bottomed out once and the skid plates did their job. We Aired down to 10psi and my butt thanked me later.
Driving a 1980 CJ-5, 31" tires and hubby drove 2017 Rubicon, 35" tires.

Hiked from base to lower lake yesterday afternoon. Camped on lower lake overnight then to upper lake and almost to summit in am. The views on the lower and upper lakes awesome. The terrain was very rocky, a little tricky for me and fully loaded with camping gear. Would go again!

Fun trail with great views. Had a few issues passing folks in some narrow spots. Would do it again.

I went on Wednesday 08-23-17 started at 11am and finished at 230 as I had to slow down for a less experienced hiker. It was beautiful. I usually do not like hikes without trees for shade but scattered rain (and a short hail) storms kept us cool. The second lake was the most beautiful. Nice quick hike, go early to avoid the rain.

Beautiful and not too crowded.

Great views! Loved this hike. It was very muddy near the end though, be prepared.

Spectacular flowers and views. A lot of mud. Take poles.

Beautiful drive up to the McClellan summit. Just go slow and easy, and you should easily make it up there!
Stocked vehicles are fine for this trail!

We have been hiking in Colorado all week. This has so far been our favorite Trail. It was just beautiful all the way around. The entire Trail is above the Treeline but the surroundings are breathtaking none the less. We highly recommend making the effort to tackle this Trail. We diverted off the trail between the two Lakes heading up the ridge to the South. After cresting that Ridge you can see all of the mountain ranges to the South. Breathtaking!

Great elevation hike. Multiple water features. Bring waterproof shoes and extra socks. The entire hike is exposed so make sure you don't get caught in the afternoon storms. Great hike to bring the dog.
