June 13th, 2018 - Hiked to the lower lake, trail was in good shape and clear of snow. Waterfall was flowing great and stream crossing was easy. At the lower lake we cut off about halfway around and bushwhacked/scrambled to the ridge. Followed the ridge to Stevens peak which still had a large cornice and snowfield below. Could have stayed to the rocks but decided to put the crampons and axe to use. Spent some time at the summit in the sun and then descended into Upper Stevens lake by way of a large avalanche field below the summit. Trail from upper lake to lower still almost completely covered in snow but doable. Great day and awesome hike!

Just hiked over to this lake on June 9th/18, from Stevens Lake. I liked Stevens better, bigger and 4 good campsites. Lone has some nice water falls into and out of its lake waters.

Just did this hike on June 9th/18, Little bite of snow last little bit of hike. Beautiful lake. Headed up to upper lake ,but still to much snow to find an actual trail. Ended up heading up onto ridge between this and Lone lake. Easy up to ridge over looking both lakes, but a little more tricky decent into Lone lake, more because of the weather and wetness. No trail but signs of others doing same loop hike. Got down into basin above Lone lake and tight trees to get through to the lake. Nice to do a loop, easy to find but no real loop trail so be ready for your own route.
5hr s to do loop with lots of stops and breaks.

Gorgeous. Have done this many times. Friends did s day hike 5/27/18 and lakes are still frozen! Checking again 7/7/18 and 7/13/18!

Great day hike, beautiful lake with a couple water falls on the way to the top.

Hiked on 5/27/18, still a lot of snow by the waterfall on the last stretch of trail.

Lost the trail once I reached the waterfall due to the snow and had to turn back. Beautiful hike, but would have loved to make it to the lake. Definitely a steep hike.

5/5/18 Steep hike but beautiful views! Trail is still mostly covered in snow but discernible overall. We were able to make it to the clearing before the big waterfall with our dog but turned around there as the snow was several feet deep. Definitely recommend gaiters and snow shoes to make it to the lower lake right now.

I went back in mid-November. We went all the way to the lake with no snow shoes but we made our own trail and the snow was 2+ feet deep in most spots. Beautiful hike but would highly recommend snow shoes and poles!

Last Saturday (11/18) a few friends and I️ headed to the Stevens Lakes trailhead in the Subaru. Lucky for us we were able to park at the trailhead. The snow was deep and fresh with powder. We snapped on our snowshoes and hit the trail. There was no one else up there and we set fresh tracks. Beyond taking a wrong turn (or not turning at all) at a few points we were able to make it to the lake just fine. At one point we decided to head straight up the mountain rather than scout around for the actual trail as it was no where to be seen and we were losing time fast. At the lake it was cold and windy, but the way up and down was mild and easy to hike without a jacket. Definitely worth checking out for your winter snowshoeing. Just make sure to have your GPS if you don’t already know the trail.

today is 11/21/17. we did this trail about a week ago. with only front wheel drive, and no snow tires on yet, my car made it about 1 mile from the trailhead before the snow/slush became too much. we parked and walked the rest of the way. the trail was covered in 4-6in of powder the entire way up. we've done the trail before, but also relied on others' footprints in the snow to navigate. it was steep and slick. i was grateful to have decent traction on my shoes and trekking poles. even so we each slipped at least once. crossing the little stream proved challenging. i think it took us abut 2 hours to get up to the lake, and around an hour to make it back down to the car. the lake was beautiful as ever, and well worth the effort, but i don't think this trail is safe for beginners in the winter.

This hike is in my backyard and it's a fairly short drive to the trailhead. I did this again the other day for the 4th time this year. Great hike!

Here's some summer drone footage when it was smoky to get a better idea of the lakes:

Hiked this awesome lake for the second time a couple days ago. Lots and lots of snow October 15, 2017. At most we were trudging through 1.5 feet, however the trail was packed down nicely so it wasn't too bad.

I took the camera and drone along on this one and filmed the whole thing. For a better feel for the hike and to get an idea, check it out at https://youtu.be/LkkMSA7CxGI

..Or search Lone Lake on YouTube and it'll be the third one down. I'd appreciate any feedback so I can make these better.

This trail isn't very clearly marked. It definitely isn't for small children or anyone with knee problems. The brush grows right over the trail so a good portion of it is very overgrown. Would be a very wet hike in the rain. Lake is pretty, camp site leaves a lot to be desired. No real level spots to put a tent. Would be perfect for hammock tenting. We did this hike in July, it was nice and warm, water was perfect for swimming. Lots of gnats and mosquitoes. Save yourself 3/4 of a mile and drive up the gravel road just past the Stevens lake Trail head. You can drive right up to the trail. There's room for a few cars to park and still turn around.

hike to lower Stevens Lake September 23rd 2017. beautiful hike lots of different terrain along the way. Trail starts on an old road, then goes into shady switchbacks following a creek most of the way. There are two areas of rock slides where you really need to watch your footing. Hiking boots recommended. You might see the cute little pikas in the rocks. The trail is a steady uphill climb but the lake at the top is worth the climb! we had the whole lake to ourselves! There was a tiny bit of snow on the trail as you head into the lake. And a dusting of snow on the mountain side with fall colors showing through. The lake was beautiful, clean and clear.

JoRayne and I reached the upper lake where we were greeted by 10" of snow that was slowly melting with the above freezing temp. We headed West, through the brush, and up the snow covered West slope (18-24") to the ridge line North of the peak. Crampons were necessary and the ice axe was beneficial.

The temps were well below freezing with the gusting wind. Great views as the clouds closed over the peak and rim and even more impressive how swiftly they withdrew during the 30 minutes we were on the ridge. Reaching the peak from our location in these weather conditions wasn't safe with the gear we had in our possession so we scoped out some alternate routes and will return another day to see the sights from the very top.

Absolutely stunning view at the end. Read reviews ahead and came in expecting a steep hike, and boy was it ever. Definitely worth the work though. Take a snack to enjoy looking over the lake!

Hiked up for an overnighter with some friends. Beautiful! Day tripped up to Stevens Peak in the morning. Quite a steep, roundabout hike but the views were incredible. Love this area!

This was my third trip to Steven's, and again it didn't dissapoint. However, it was the first time I had backpacked in and stayed overnight. We went on a Wednesday and had the lakes to ourselves. Other than the thick smoke from the wildfires, it was a great stay.

Check out my Youtube video for aerial footage of the lakes and the peak! This was all shot using a drone. Leave a thumbs up if you enjoyed! https://youtu.be/yraAW8G70fM

Rando peu fréquentée ce 27 août, commence par un chemin, puis un sentier et cela monte raide pendant 40mn, plat sur 10mn et à nouveau pente raide, passage dans un pierrier. Mais la récompense est au bout, ce lac est superbe.

There is really no trail if you follow the red line you will go off trail then down and up ski runs. I still had a good time but the other reviews with 5 star are on a different hike! there where huckleberries everywhere that made it all worth wild :)

This hike was amazing. All of the directions and maps are very accurate. We love hikes where you follow a river or creek to your destination, it makes the hike so peaceful and even more enjoyable. I loved reaching the lower lake, it is so beautiful and quiet, even though we had a group of college girls come running out of the trees screaming because they had reached the lake. We also continued on to the upper lake, which was a bit difficult for us to find the true trail, we kept finding trails that led us into marsh land, but we eventually found the trail. It was probably 7 miles total and it took us just under 5 hours.

was a super fun hike kids, wife and I loved it

Hiked the trail in a summer rainstorm. The first part of the trail is definitely uphill,but after that it's not too bad. Seen a momma moose and her baby on the trail. Hiked to the upper sanctuary it's not as nice as the lake and the trail was hard to find, just follow the creek.

awesomeee
