Great trail year round. Beautiful scenery and outlooks. I live the sound of the falls along the river.

Love this hike. Super rough in some areas and great views all around. Only problem is, we have a house up here and it's less fun when every college kid trying to impress their friend floods the trail in July or August.

William's lake is a fantastic stop off to relax and eat some lunch too

I have done this hike twice. Once from Middle Fork and Once from William's Lake. Great hike, excellent challenge; especially when you have to consider getting stuck above the tree line in the rain and storms.

Hiked this trail with my son up from the ski lodges. It was a final tuneup before his trek at Philmont. Lots of wildlife and incredible views. It's a hard trail but anyone with experience can make this trek. Pace and water and you are good to go. Must see if you are in this part of New Mexico.

Great hike. Trail very clearly marked with signs right from the parking area and blue blazes on the trees. Left early since afternoon thunderstorms are the norm in mid-July. Clear blue sky on the summit at 8:00 am. Lots of marmot! Must have seen 15 or more. Even got a good picture of the more elusive picas

Lots of people hiking up as I was descending. Weather held out until just after noon when the rain and thunder started if you're hiking in July get an early start to beat the rains! It's worth the extra effort.

My wife and I just backpacked for a couple day at lake Katherine for the first time. We really enjoyed ourselves but this was also the hardest trail we have ever backpacked. Make sure you give yourself lots of extra time, it took us about 7-8 hours. My wife also took a small fall on the loose rocks. That being said the views were amazing and we will definitely be back!!!

Decent hike in, nothing too crazy. Went during the week and only a couple other people camping there. Heard it can get busy on the weekends! Loads of marmots though!
