Great hike. Lots of spots for dogs to stop and drink/play in the water. Up to the log damn pond the trail is clear, but shortly after the trail is still pretty snow packed.

Prepare for an hour drive on a single lane mountain road to the trail head. Plan on an uphill trek but manageable! Views are spectacular and worth the journey!

So beautiful! Challenging, but worth it. Long winding road to drive up to trailhead. Insane view!

It was a very cold day for a hike (9 degrees), but the trail was beautiful hiking in the snow. The snow depth is minimal, with a couple of stretches of ice that warrants using cleats to be safe. I would also suggest taking hiking poles to provide additional balance going down hills. I made it to where the trail ascends to the lakes before turning around. The frozen waterfalls along the creek were amazing!

Only hiked the first four miles. Nice creek with plenty of spots to chill. Nice views of the surrounding canyon. Ended up stopping where I could see a peak at the very end of the valley. Looking forward actually making it to the lake.

Cool pond area one mile in and waterfall at about three miles was flowing nicely. Great open views the last 2.5 miles before bass lake. The last 1.5 miles was rocky and had a few inches of snow here or there (10-22-16) but nothing too crazy. The lake area was really nice. Excellent day hike.
