Took the family. The kiddo did great. he loved it. Very busy trail. But the view at the end was worth it.

I haven't done a lot of heavy physical activity in a while due to health restrictions. I struggled to make it to the top. But there are many places and benches to stop and rest if you are out of shape like me. ☺

Busy hike. I had a small dog and had to pick him up for some of the incline portions. Pretty lake and views.

This should definitely be marked as Hard. Pretty challenging, but worth it. This trail has everything. Lots of wildflowers, a few waterfalls, 2 bodies of water to cross, snow, and your gorgeous lake at the end. It was the hardest hike I have done so far. Id love to go again to camp at the lake. Make sure to have hiking shoes/boots, tons of water, and plenty of time. Took us about 6 hours including 30min at the lake.

First 14er. I was a little scared bc everyone says they're so intense but it was a great experience. I run at least once a week and am fairly athletic so I could push through when the air got harder to breathe in. I just kept going slow and steady, taking breaks as needed. The views were excellent the whole way up so it was a treat to stop and take it all in. I also enjoyed the last part of getting to the summit where there is no correct path through the giant rocks. I was definitely sore the next couple days but it was absolutely worth it to get up there and take in the vastness of God's creation with some sweet friends. Nothing quite like it.

Absolutely beautiful. Get there early and bring cash. We arrived at the PayStation by 9am on a Saturday and it was about a 45 min wait to get in. Some people opted to park outside the park but it's a VERY LONG hike to get to Brainerd and even farther to get to Long Lake then Isabelle. But if you can get a good parking spot up near Long Lake, it's an absolutely beautiful and breathtaking hike up to Isabelle Glacier.

Passed through this lake. And it's a great spot. I understand why this place is a popular destination to get to. Clear water, breezy, space for camping and daypacking, a good sot to test. Eternal junctions. On sunny clear days it's definitely one that everyone should try to visit.

Beautiful trail that goes all the way around the reservoir. Easy hike. Amazing view of pikes peak. There's awesome camping spots that are right by.

The most gorgeous hike ever! it does get a little tough after the Dream lake, but it's totally worth it! My favorite was the Dream lake... breathtakingly beautiful and so serene!!

Great hike!!! Had to be creative around the snow but it was doable and it was rewarding succeeding the challenge. My fiancé and I are completely tired!!! Go early you will thank yourself it gets very hot after noon! Great hike!

Fantastic trail! Great for beginners- don't miss it!

I started the hike at the trailhead that was off of Wasatch Blvd instead of the one listed on here. This one off of Wasatch was pretty steep up to the lake. The view of the lake itself nestled in the mountains and the views of the valley are worth it already. The rest of the hike up to the falls was relatively easy until about the last half mile where it gets steep and feels like it never ends. At one point I wondered if seeing the falls was even worth it. Once I got up there, it was. Hiking on a hot day and standing in the cool mist of the waterfall will make you want to stay drenched in it's awesomeness and not come back down. I'd do it again, even in the middle of a hot summer day.

Wow! Breathtaking is all I can say.
Lots of rocks and for a small dog it was a bit of a challenge, but he made it (only carried him for 1 mile on the way down). Highly recommend!

Did this on 7/20/17 and WOW! Those wild flowers were amazing. Definitely bring your bug spray. We started at 8:45, made it to the first two lakes in 1.5 hours, then the push to the upper lake took an extra maybe 45 min but that was with a lot of stops. The final stretch is definitely straight up but it afforded beautiful views. with stops at each lake and a lot up the last stretch to enjoy the view, it took us about 4.5 hrs.

Road up is very rough. Trail is in good condition. The summit is a little airy so not a good place to bring up young kids without heavy supervision. Views are great. This used to be a little known trail but despite the very rough road this trail is now very popular on weekend. Nice lighter hike.

I left Port Angeles early and was first into the trail. Lots of mule dear and chipmunks. It was an easy and beautiful hike.

This hike is stunning! This is nature at its best! The first 3.5 miles are very demanding and the last 3 miles are brutal! The views through the entire trek are breathtaking! This was my first hike and I did it alone. The peace and quiet were spiritually cleansing. I stayed at Barr Camp about half way to the summit. The camp was a nice break and it allowed me to take my time hiking you really get the full effect of the beauty this area has to offer. I'm definitely doing this again!

We actually started up only to find the trail was closed so we took the Detour which was hard but only about 1 1/2 miles We then took the cascade trail back down. Was a beautiful trail down
