We love this trail. Today was a hot, windy day in the Snake River Valley, but up here it was beautiful. We had too many small kids with us today, so we didn't make it up very far. But it was a great hike anyway. We'll be coming back for sure.

This is a pretty hike but it gets a little boring at times because it's all the same. Very easy hike, my young children could have easily done it. If you want a leisurely day hike on a nice day I would recommend it

A great hike! A great place for a backpacking trip and the lake is stocked with fish. We saw many deer and if you follow the trail closest to and on the north side of the lake for about a quarter of a mile, you can find an awesome rope swing that goes out over the lake.

This was a beautiful hike, but the weather wasn't cooperative... We planned 2 nights of camping, but rain and hail the first night made us decide to cut it a night short. In better weather this must be an amazing trip!

Worth the hike but cold weather put a damper on the lake a bit. Hiked to both the lower and upper lakes. Trail is clear and has good scenery. Overall an awesome hike.

Such a beautiful trail! A little rocky at times definitely not a trail for vibrams. We saw a mountain goat and ran into a guy that had seen a moose that day. We only hiked to the lower lake which took about two hours. There are fire pits and places to tent so bring your gear and stay the night!

We love to do this trail, it's a family favorite. The downfalls are It can get crowded in the summer time and can have heavy horse traffic at times (watch your step!), but it has great views, lots of wildlife, a nice trail, and good fishing.

Great hike! Nice & easy. I think the best time to hike it would be in the fall. Good beginner backpacking trip, can be crowded at times. I highly recommend it for hikers of any level.
