It’s the worst 55 minutes of your life climbing up, but the top is unbeatable. Depending on time of year prepare for bees or mosquitoes. Both of my dogs were attacked this year and last year we couldn’t stay in place because the mosquitoes were relentless. Took almost as long to hike down, about 45 minutes.

After Minotaur we took the west ridge to Labyrinth mountain. Fun class 2-3 scramble. Spire along the route was airy with one exposed move

Tough Trail but worth it.. watch-out for the bees :)

Be prepared to follow the awful instructions on this hike, and not even make it there. There was one sudden left turn around mile six that we were not able to find. We even went off the trail to try to “follow the ridge line” like the instructions suggested. We were very unsuccessful, and after 1.5 hours of searching, we ended up turning back. Other than that, we enjoyed the trail. It was fun, even though we didn’t get to make it to Larch Lake.

Gorgeous hike, lots of ups and downs until the end but I would say this hike isn’t that difficult! It’s very highly trafficked so the trail is usually in phenomenal shape. I have done this hike so many times over the years and it’s one I hold so dearly. The view at the top is absolutely incredible and even in Banff I’ve never seen such a beautiful mountain lake. Don’t forget to bring water!

This is an easy trail if you’re looking for a nice walk with good views of the river. If you’re a trail runner it’s also a good one to run. We saw families on the trail with little ones that managed the hike pretty well. This was a nice relaxing hike after doing Colchuck the day before. Now to enjoy some of the festivities in Leavenworth!

Amazing hike! Get to the trailhead either early or later in the afternoon if hiking on the weekend. There’s a lot of increased parking enforcement and we saw three different rangers managing the parking. We got there at 8:00 (after driving from Seattle) to find that the parking lots were full and parked on the road 3.5 miles from the trailhead. We were lucky enough to hitch rides both up and down, but we saw many who were not so lucky. The views at the lake were absolutely worth it though!

Long walk through the woods with a rewarding view of a beautiful lake at the end. We parked our car in one of the few remaining spots in the parking lot at 6:25am on a Saturday. Lots of triffid on the trail, but everyone is extremely courteous. We didn’t go down to the campground, just hung out at the outcropping when you first see the lake. Took us a little over 2 hrs to get up there and a little under 2 hrs to get back down.

We had an amazing hike!

Easy trail hike good for kids or dogs w beach access at the beginning and towards the end (if you scramble down a small slope.) The upper beach is a great spot with slack water for swimming in deep emerald colored water. Short and mostly flat, the trail also offers a couple spots to boulder along the hillside. You can hear the vehicles along the highway but they are slightly muffled by the sounds of the river. At the end there is a great view of castle rock on the other side of the highway. Look close and you might see a climber or two presses against its face.

Very nice walk along the beautiful river. About to And 2.2 miles!

Great hike and very worth it. My wife and I will be doing it again!

This hike is AMAZING! It is hard but it’s definitely worth it. The views are absolutely outstanding. My group was able to feed chipmunks and birds right out of our hands, and we saw deer, and a mom and cub black bear.

This is a great hike! I got here on Friday 9/13/19 around 7:30a with parking over 75% full. The trail starts out easy and starts the incline about a mile and a half in. It does get steep in some areas towards the end but definitely doable if you pace yourself. The views are everything they say it is! Like something out of lord of the rings! The glacial waters are amazing and I was so tempted to jump in but it was a bit chilly and cloudy. If the sun was out I’d definitely do it, but setting my feet was best I’d do today. I saw several campers in the area and think I’d like to give it a go next year. I didn’t want to leave! I’ll be back on a sunny day!

Well I must be the slowest hiker on the planet. Took me 5hrs to summit to the lake. (Twice as long as most posted here). And depends on which device you want to believe my Garmin GPS clocked 6.25 miles to the lake and my iPhone strava app clocked 7. So round trip 12.5/14. Took us 9 1/2 hours (with about an hour at the lake). Last two miles to the lake is what is going to kick your butt.

Fun trail to a nice ridge above town. Good for days you don’t have a ton of time.

overgrown and pretty boring at first honestly, then the last mile or so is pretty brutal and the lower lake is not that impressive. Can’t speak for the upper lake because we didn’t go. Only one nice spot to camp at the top but pretty nice camping spots along the creek.
