We did the three lakes trail with our 6 yr old son and two pups. Everyone was good and tired after spending a good half day exploring these beautiful alpine lakes. Would highly recommend this trail, especially in late July when the wildflowers are on fire!!

I really liked this trail. We were on it by 8:30 on a Friday and had it to ourselves. Beautiful area. Peaceful without people around.

Gorgeous and pretty mellow

This trail really wasn’t worth the drive. The lakes and falls are pretty and the trail is well marked, but the trail was fairly crowded, and there were very few wildflowers (even in mid-July) .

Amazing views around every corner. My 4 year old and 7 year old went with my wife and I and it took about 3 hours but worth it.

great hike, easy enough for girls age 10 and 12, beautiful !

This was a great hike! There is some snow on the way up to dollar lake but is passable.

Went on a Saturday late morning. While there was an occasional group of people here or there, for a majority of the time we were alone. Beautiful lakes with views. It is. We were staying in Crested Butte, and it was a short drive. Well worth it and will for sure do it again.

One of my favorite hikes in the state. Quiet, out of the way, and beautiful. Anthracite Creek is amazingly clear (and can rage in the spring after a heavy winter). Small trout can be caught in the creek.

Went on a Saturday so it was a little crowded but could walk for awhile without seeing anyone. Just backs up at the waterfalls and lakes. Fairly easy hike and beautiful views. It’s quite a drive up a smooth dirt road with so many great views of lakes as well. We were coming from marble. We were able to take our time at each lake and let the dogs play and cool off in the crystal clear water. Did a little fishing and caught a baby rainbow trout. I would do this hike again any day so worth it.

Great trail with stunning views! The campground isn’t open yet (as of Memorial Day weekend) but you can park and still walk up to the trail. The hike to the second lake is easy with zero snow, when you start to head towards dollar lake, there’s some snow pack on a tight steep trail that we ended up turning around because of. There is signage missing at the waterfall but the trail continues toward the left, not across the stream.

Easy trail, with only a small incline. Lots of awesome scenery. The trail starts right at the campground.

This hike is tough! The views are awesome but 2+ miles of rock field is exhausting. Also the trail is non-existent even outside of the rock fields. I would recommend just going around lost lake and then up a bit part way through the fields - the whole way is not quite worth it, in my opinion!

Beautiful hike. Lakes are definitely something to see. Easy hike. Camp sites were totally filled and lots of people at sites. Not many people on the trial.

@Michael Howard yes you can. They have campsites right at the trailhead. If those are all full, there are plenty of campsites along the road heading up

Beautiful trail with, you guessed it, three lakes. Each lake has its own character and atmosphere. Can be slightly muddy in places.

Lots of snow still up high, and lots of talus/scree hopping. Some of this gets loose, steep and sketchy on the route I chose. Up high, I followed a previous hikers AllTrails gps map, but had to deviate due to snow. My route only got to the ridge that you would scramble up to get to the summit. It was getting late in the day, I was alone, and a little scared of the loose talus ridge climb, so I bailed, to return another day!

I went on a hiking palooza, and went to Zion, Arches, and few other hikes in Colorado and Utah, and this trail was my favorite. You can hear an enormous waterfall from the start of the trail, and each Lake is GORGEOUS. The lookouts are breathtaking, and walking through the rivers and streams is both challenging and exciting. I love this trail, and camping here is great too. If you like spectacular views and aren't afraid of water, this is the hike for you.

One of my favorite hikes. The lakes are beautiful, especially dollar lake cause it had an emerald color. Went in late June and the creeks were full and flowing. The view of the mountains was one of the prettiest views I've seen. Definitely recommend

Absolutely beautiful hike. Went in June and almost all the snow was melted and the lakes were full. Lots of shady spots for hot days. Definitely go to all three lakes and the water fall!

This trail still has a decent amount of snow on it. The most snow was between The Falls and Dollar lake. There were a couple of times that you had to guess where the trail was. If you are starting the loop from the east and are going up to Dollar lake you really don't hit the snow until you're about 0.2 miles from the lake. The views were gorgeous and well worth the hike through the snow.
