Alright trail. The views were mostly obscured by trees, but if you go left on trail 24.1 at the "end" of this trail, you can get to an overlook pretty quickly. Stay on 24.1 (don't veer right into 28.3) and it'll be pretty obvious when you get there. There's what looks line a split in the trail but really the one to the right just goes to a slightly higher overlook and comes right down next to the lower one, so go either way.

Went in mid-July and there was a decent amount of snow coverage still on the trail. If you're going during that time trekking poles would be a good idea! Saw quite a few mountain goats and going in the late evening was the perfect time.

Easy hike, beautiful views. Wish it was longer :)

So many ways to go & varying degrees of difficulty. We love heading out here in the spring and fall.

Easy short hike--nice to do when you don't have much time. Just the first part of the hike is "moderate" ... then it's more of a walk.

Really lovely hike--pretty views and the rivers/creeks, waterfall and wild raspberries kept it interesting for my kids. The kids did great though my 6 year old slipped a few times coming down (it's a pretty rocky trail). I think actual hiking boots would be better. Didn't have time to make it to the second lake. Hopefully next time.

Very popular trail, but for good reason. We walked up about halfway (1.5 miles in) to the overlook and back, but you can keep going down to the lake. The trail is mostly uphill on the way in (to the overlook) but it is not strenuous, and half of it is boardwalk. We saw a bear who minded its own business but crossed the trail at one point (literally 100 people in eyesight at that point, so it wasn't scary), plus bighorn sheep and lots of mountain goats. Beautiful wildflowers, mountain views, and waterfalls. If you want an easier hike and/or don't have a lot of time in the park I'd go for this trail!

My favorite trail for trail running ever: Steep climb to top, Smooth downhill glide to bottom.
