This was a beautiful hike the whole way with the gorgeous reward of Aneroid lake at the end. First two miles are steepish but after that it gently climbs. We did this on 6/22/18. Small snow patches up near the lake. The top 3 miles of the trail are ok for somewhat technical trail running. We ran down from the lake for about 4 miles but that last mile was we’re rocky.

Gorgeous hike with not a lot of people..

Fantastic Spring Hike. There was still some snow fields on the hillsides which filled the creek and added a wild sound effect to the downhill rushing water. The trail is easy but gradually up. A good destination is the waterfall. My GPS had the out and back hike at 6.8 miles, with 1,000 feet of elevation gain. You walk up a canyon into the mountains. Do this hike, you won't be sorry.

Winter hike up here, not too much snow right now - didn’t require snowshoes. It was, however, really icy. Trekking poles work great to keep you on two feet! The hike is very nice, not too hard but you can work up a bit of a sweat too with a faster pace! Most of the trail follows the river closely, the waterfall is lovely, and the evidence of avalanches really makes an impression; tons of downed trees and debris from who-knows-when.

We hiked to the waterfall in winter on a beautiful clear day. This hike is amazing! The mountains Loom up right next to you, unexpectedly and gloriously close. I highly recommend this Trail in the winter because the ice that forms on top of the running water is so very pretty.

Amazing trail to backpack! I went in late July. The river was GUSHING which made the ford very challenging (and a bit dangerous). Glacier Pass was covered in, well, glaciers. This made the trail difficult to follow and we were not prepared to pass over snow, but we managed without losing any party members :) Lakes Basin was beautiful, albeit there were lots of mosquitos. My party was made of 4, and we had two small dogs travel with us. Lakes full of little trout and were a swimmable temperature, trails were well maintained (save the glacier thing), wild flowers were blooming like crazy, sunsets were gorgeous. One night was clear enough to star gaze for hours. There was a thunderstorm and we had some good rain the third night. Excellent trip, highly recommended.

We have hiked all over the U.S. but this trail has to be one of our most favorite. We even saw a momma bear and her cub.

Totally Awesome hike we did this JUNE 5TH and there was a lot of snow on the trail, definitely bring Yaktrax and Crampons and an Ice Ax if going beyond the lake!

Lovely! Very easy to follow trail, steep start to great views of wallowa lake, pretty meadows, and finally aneroid lake at the top! Really pretty this time of year (late July) and I would love to see what it looks like with more snow.

We backpacked this trail during the first week of June 2016. The high lakes basin of the Eagle Cap Wilderness was still snowed in but this trail was open. The first couple of miles were brushy but then it opened out into rock fields, Old Growth forest and meadows. There was a forest fire in the first two miles which is partly why its brushy. We only saw two other parties, from a distance, for the three days we were there. A friendly doe followed us for a bit. The wildflowers were fantastic!

Not great for kids. Narrow trail in some areas along some cliffs.

Amazing views, giant rushing glacial water that flows into the lake, emerald waters. Plan to stay overnight and enjoy
