Did this hike on a Saturday morning - 20 cars parked by 830am. Tripled to quadrupled by time we left at 11am!

Well maintained trails, some parts under renovation, that meander through switchbacks and along the two lakes. I personally liked Talapus Lake better - bigger and more picturesque. The hubs liked Ollalie better - less people.

This hike is super doable for all ages and fitness levels. I'm not sure how AllTrails ranks hikes but I'd say this one is more an "easy" or "easy-moderate" hike, not a "moderate" hike. I'd come back, next time with my inflatable SUP!

Very fun trail

Amazing trail. Lots of switch backs and vertical . Beautifully scenery . If any one dose happen to climb in soon I may have lost a blue dry sac up near the summit , stopped at a fallen down tree a mile or so past the water fall. Had some importantly stuff in it . Would appreciate if anyone could let me know. Happy hiking .

great place to hike went there while it was raining and had no problems going up or down..and with my 5 year old! :)

Not a bad little hike. I was hoping for a better view of the lakes from up there, but it was only ok. Lots of deer in the area, had a few close encounters.

Good time killer if you are camping at one of the sites nearby....but don't make a trip just for the hike....too many other great places in the area.

Great view from top, many trails to check out.

My husband and I walked this trail in the pouring rain. It was quite romantic actually. A bit short for us so we turned around and walked the other way around the loop. Loved it. ❤️

Did this in the rain and it was so beautiful. There are still wildflowers around the loop. Having wildflowers and snow in the same place was amazingly beautiful.

This is the best rainy day hike ever! It gets five stars only when its wet and rainy and you really need to hike somewhere. Nice trail along the river with all sorts of water falls and lush green colors. The trail just ends as it goes no where so turning around early is not a big deal. Save this one for a wet day

Frustratingly, we never got to the lake. About a mile in, at Twin Lake, the trail forks. There is no sign and the trail that turned out to be the one to Summit Lake appears closed with the bridge down and red caution tape around the trees. We took the trail to the right and climbed about a mile or so before hikers coming down told us we were headed to Bear Head summit. By then the less experienced hikers in our group didn't feel they could make it back down the way we had come plus continue to the lake so we had to cut our hike short.

It's a nice trail and we'll probably try again in the future.

This place is awesome. We were alone in the forest with our poochies, and it was great. Moving back from 8 years in Montana was an unexpected culture shock. I miss being able to enjoy nature at any moment, and do so without being surrounded by people and the dogs are used to not being stuck on leashes, so this was bliss for us. Will definitely be back.
