This hike is actually 22 miles round trip but has some stunning views. It's 4 miles to Pete lake which is beautiful and then 7 more to Spectacle lake. There's still a lot of snow near the end of the hike but it is doable with just hiking boots. The temperatures at the lake dropped much lower than we were expecting so if you plan to camp up there, be prepared! The bridge about 2 miles from the lake is also out so you may have to go downstream a bit and wade across.

We got lost several times due to the lack of signage so make sure you have your AllTrails location on so you can direct yourself around and keep track of how far you have gone.
