I highly recommend this trail it was beautiful! Wouldn’t recommend for younger children unless they do a lot of hiking, it’s a lot of up and down.

Great trail! First 2mi are cake. But the last 1.5-2mi are a serious climb! If you have a gps be sure to utilize that. We staying a couple nights which I wouldn’t do again since it’s a busy day hike and popular backpacking spot. I prefer solitude. Elephants perch is stunning at sunset!

Awesome trail and great backpacking trip! Wish we could have stayed longer! The wildlife comes alive at night, walked right through our camp. A good tough backpacking trip

Off trailScramble

OK several FYI's for first timers. 1.) there is no direct vehicle access to redfish lake inlet. I did not know this lol. you either hike from redfish lake trailhead to the inlet campground (extra 6mile hike) or take a boat in from Redfish lake outlet campground which was about $20 there and back for 1 person. 2.) GO WITH A FRIEND. If you've read other hikers comments, super likely you will get lost since there's like 20 different paths that could be to saddleback lake. The Gia app GPS saved our butts on this one!! It was so helpful although still got lost off trail for about 2 hours. Despite what the trail guide said, KEEP RIGHT. And refer back to your GPS. 3. Last 1.5 miles up is definately a steep scramble. Super fun though, don't give up. 4. We went Sep. 19 and surprisingly the smoke had totally cleared. Overall, make sure you have good gripping hiking shoes, if you can't find the right path just keep right and keep trying. Saddleback lake is breath taking.

HikingGreat!

This was an awesome trip I did the loop in 6 days 5 nights the week before Labor Day with quite a bit of detours coming out right around 100 miles. This was my first backpacking trip so I learned a lot towards the end. I went clockwise on the trail. I used Backpacking Idaho book by Douglas Lorain for the first day for some sweat detours but is a different loop as I learned so it will be my trip for next year. The first day I went to Trail Creek Lakes and Observation Peak which provided heck of views and made it to just before the turn over to Stanley lake. The second day I went over to the Stanley lake just around Sunrise and went back on trail and then went on trail then detoured off to see the Alpine, Sawtooth, and the McGown Lakes. Worth the detour. The sawtooth lake was pretty crowded but mostly day hikers. Then the third day got back on trail and tried to detour over to Goat lake and found it to be too difficult with the amount of food I had so I turned around and got back in trail. Will have to try next time. I made it to the Redfish lake in the trail there I saw Marshal lake which was pretty dang cool. I camped not far from when you cross the bridge on top of a tree line beach by the redfish lake. The fourth day I took a couple detours over to the bench lake and that was probably one of my highlights with the perfect reflection off the water without people. Then got back on trail and then made it to the Redfish inlet and took a small detour over to the lily lake and the waterfalls which was pretty cool. Then I got back on trail and headed over to Hell Roaring Lake. That trail from the Inlet to the Roaring lake had quite a bit of dead trees and I ended up complaining to the forest service but be aware of the trail. Hell Roaring lake was pretty cool and ended up camping just a past a small lake between hells Roaring and Imogene. Day five went over to Imogen around sunrise and it was breathtaking with the reflection. Then wen over the hill into the Toxaway Lake area. I definitely suggest doing the hill in the morning with all the switchbacks. Then I went on trail and made it to Alpine lake by the end of the day. I saw Edna, hidden lake, and the Cramer Lakes. They were pretty cool The sixth day I woke up and saw the first small lake just about sunrise and went over to the baron lake during the best timing and got some of my best pictures I took. Them it was pretty much downhill from there to the trail head. Great trip you won’t get to see the things unless you go out there. I would suggest enjoying the moment a lot more then I did but there is so much to see. I suggest it to anyone.

BackpackingGreat!

Really beautiful fall hike and we did the full 18-mile loop. We made this a two-day trek to complete the loop clockwise. Once you hit the trail, try to fill your Nalgene up at each river crossing, it helps to keep hydrated and make sure you hit your last fill-up around 4.5 miles up (as that will be the last natural water fill for a while). Mile 5-7 have you journeying through the burnt section of the trail; however, still beautiful in its own way. Keep in mind you will be going up for 7 straight miles. Water and river crossing were easy and painless in September with us never getting our feet wet. Once you hit the summit, the view is unbelievable. Take it in and then head on down to Sawtooth Lake on the North Fork Baron Sawtooth Lake Trail and water up. It reminded me of Crater Lake with its beauty. There are a few campspots once you hit the bottom, most are taken quickly, but don't fret - keep going past Sawtooth Lake and there are two more unnamed lakes that are amazing, quite and worth the extra mile to get to (bring your swim gear). We camped there for the night and my attached pictures show the view. This will put you at 10-11 miles into your 18 mile hike, so it will be a heavy first day, but worth it to take it a little easier on day two as most of the trek is downhill or flat. There are some rock slides that make the trail appear to stop, but within 30 seconds you will see where the trail picks up and make your way around any obstacles (rocks, fallen trees). Day 2 has you witnessing some amazing sites and water features as well. As a novice hiker in his 40's this hike was very doable and I had about 30 lbs on my pack. I was definitely tired, but nothing too tough and well worth the victory of completing the loop. I never felt lost and although the trail gets a little brushy, you can pretty easily find your way through. We saw a total of 8 humans on the trail, so there is lots of solitude. Hightly recommended trip. Remember to pack some iced adult beverages in your car as a reward upon you return. Enjoy!!!!
