Beautiful trail! Easy to follow. Some hard elevation gains but worth every moment.

This is one of the best hikes in this area - and probably the best day hike. We did this along with Stuart Lake and the mountain views and the water color were breathtaking

You should do Colchuck Lake first because its much steeper (and much prettier) than Stuart Lake. Also, the actual distance of covering both lakes is at least 12 miles.

A nice easy stroll through near the river. Nothing spectacular, but well maintained and convenient for walking into town from the WorldMark resort.

This loop is beautiful! We got some many great fall pictures! It’s a really easy hike but the river and trees surround you are great! Worth the time! Follow all our adventures on Instagram @themicrotourists.

Pretty decent and I crowded home at this time of year. You get some really great views of the mountains. The lakes are nothing special but there is a cool old forestry cabin up top. Worth the time but there are much better options around. Follow all our adventures on Instagram @themicrotourists!

Beautiful water! Easy strolling trail but loved it.

so gorgeous!

Nice clean and well kept trail. Great views

Beautiful and rewarding trail! The trees were just starting to change color and I think in the next few weeks the colors will be even better. I added on the Valhalla lake trail at the end which was a really nice and easy addition.

This is an ambitious day hike but better than colchuck after 5 miles in. Also don’t need to drive that dreaded dirt road. Must dedicate all day. Two lakes and in between had stunning beauty. Also saw a deer, goats, and even a brown bear all right along trail.

Trail in great shape, a little muddy and could be slick if raining. Would do again, totally a great hike for backpacking.

Fantastic family hike. We loved that it was a loop trail instead of the typical out and back that most hikes are. We recommend that you take the trail clockwise, especially if you are taking kids. Clockwise seems to have more upfront things to look at, while counterclockwise starts out with about a mile of forest views that are serene, but not as engaging as the falls and rapids you get going clockwise. Overall a truly enjoyable outing for our whole family.

One of my favorite hikes in the PNW. It's a very popular trail, so get there early. Leave yourself at least 5 hours to complete the trail, but give yourself more time if you want to stay at the lake for a bit. Try to go on a sunny day as the water looks a brighter shade of blue in the sunlight.

This is an amazing hike worth every step. I highly recommend this trail.

Sooo pretty! The trees are changing colors so it’s perfect for your larches fix these next couple weeks. Follow the cairns and in the core zone, the trail usually hugged the lakes until it takes you back up to the left down down down many boulder fields. We clocked 20.1 miles with 5,534ft of elevation gain. 12 hours even with three breaks. 1 hr 45 minutes up aasgard.

magical

I have been wanting to do this hike for a while in one day and last Saturday 9/8 /2018 started at 5 am from Stuart Lake Trail-head where my wife dropped me and finished at 7 pm in Snow lakes Trail-head. Asgard was definitely hard for me . Doing this hike in a day certainly pushed me to the limit and more , however the reward is fantastic , the landscape is very beautiful . I clocked 23 miles in 14 hours. An amazing hike !

Doing this in a day will push you to your limits, but it's insanely rewarding. One of the locals referred to it as "The Enchantments Death March" which sounds about right.

Start early: we hit the trail at 5:30 am and finished around 5:30pm, and we pushed pretty hard all day.

Thru hiked in 12 hrs, got lost a bit and ended up doing 25 miles, i was scared of the mountain goats and ran off trail cuz of that lol

Challenging but did not think the view was worth it. A lot of the locals around Leavenworth use this trail as a quick workout.

Pretty hike. Went in the late afternoon and no one was on the trail.

Hiked threw in about 11 hours. Asgard was definitely hard for me and slowed the hike. This hike is totally worth a day hike. Bonus was no bugs!

Incline don’t miss leg day. Breath taking worth the hike.

Awesome hike! Arrived at parking lot around 8:30 and it was 95% full. Started out on the trail around 8:45. They need one of those jumping deer signs as we scared up a couple of deer and they jumped! Watch out for the tree roots that seem to be alive. We stopped counting the number of times we tripped. The lake is gorgeous. The hike was tough (we are in our mid 50s), but very doable. We were out about 4 1/2 hours with a 30 minute break at the lake and picture breaks along the way.

Pretty sweet - must do

extremely beautiful and moderate traffic. plenty of water along the way. most of the trail is hardpacked and easy terrain. everyone on the trail was very friendly.
