Amazing wildflowers this time of year (mid-July)! Fairly easy hike, would be a great family day trip. There are lots of switchbacks so you hardly even notice the elevation gain!

Good hike today with a lot of colors and water

Great trail. Fun day out with the kids. Wouldn’t class it as difficult.

Beautiful... there was still snow

This is one of our favorite hikes. Along the way are a number of small lakes and ponds. Lamoille Lake, right before the approach to Liberty Pass was still frozen.
Finding the way up the pass was challenging because of all the snow. Our boots got definitely wet. We used micro spikes which helped a lot with traction.
The view of frozen Liberty Lake was breathtaking.

Hiked to Griswold Lake. Trail is fairly easy for the first 2.5 miles, then it gets steep with lots of boulders and lose footing. it's totally worth the effort though. The lake and the cirque are beautiful.

Make sure you get a key to make it through the gate by car and drive all the way up the road to the trailhead.

The hike to the lake is 7 miles RT with 2,800 feet elevation gain.

Loved this hike. Not too strenuous and the scenery is beautiful. Lots of waterfalls along the trail this time of year. It's a 5 miles RT with 1,400 feet elevation gain.

Did this hike with my wife in 2013. Awesome views. We went from Harrison Pass to S Smith creek first day. To Overland Lake second day and stayed there to relax an extra day. To Favre Lake after that and then out the last day. From overland to Favre was by far the toughest stretch. I think 13 mikes or so. 11 miles without water. Gorgeous.

Sign states trailhead by campsite #33. But, if one drives the loop looking for Space #33 they will drive past trailhead. Instead, look for campsite #31. The trailhead is directly across from #31.
Hiked in May. When I got to the snow, I kept hiking. Trail became a serials of snow, no snow. I pulled the muscle in the ball of my foot, decided to turn around.

Very rewarding to get to this awesome lake. I wouldn’t mind fishing up here next time I go.

Love this hike! Went yesterday and there is about a foot of snow at the lake, but some patches have melted off. I've hiked it sevaral times and I love the spring there when the snow is melting and the wild flowers are blooming and the streams are flowing.

Amazing trail! Great camping spots, access to water (will need to filtered of course) and beautiful views. Hiked south to north, and loved it.

The trail was peaceful and beautiful. Just the right amount of difficulty for someone who doesn't hike as much as she would like.

Nice easy hike. Beautiful scenery.

Awesome! Be prepared: bring a water filtration pump, extra food, etc. There is a ~11mile stretch without water between overland lake and Favre. We did this in 2.5 days and 2 nights and it was a bit rushed. Bring good hiking buddies

The better hike is past Lamoille Lake to Liberty Lake. It is one of my all time favorites. I hiked there last week and found tons of wild flowers. Lamoille Lake is emerald green and full due to snow still melting. I disagree re: shade. I think there's plenty! If you like a more remote hike with few people this is it!

A diamond in the rough. This trail climbs to around 10,000 feet with majestic views of the ruby mountains, and passes along a handful of alpine lakes. Be sure to bring plenty of water and a good lunch!

Non stop views of an absolutely stunning canyon until you reach liberty pass and have a birds-eye view of liberty lake. This hike shattered my stereotypes of Nevada.

You pass 2 lakes on the way to the saddle before you start to drop down to Liberty Lake. We ran oit of time but only made it to the saddle. We had a perfect view of liberty lake. Liberty Lake has an amazing blue-green tint. We sat at the saddle overlooking the Lake along with other ridges and peaks. Great hike.

Nice trail to a beautiful little lake. I'd love to see this canyon in spring with the winter thaw. We will be back for sure.

Great workout, not much shade though.
