Just a joyous hike through so many environments. Cant compete with pictures. It is rated intermediate and heed the rating; its a challenge at times with some fairly steep sections. We had good weather and were fine in runners, but proper hiking boots would be...More

We stopped off here and had a quick walk into the first lake as we didn't have much time. Walk in very easy but with all these places it was very busy even at 8 am.

A lovely lake that is getting much more popular and crowded to visit in summertime. The hike is not too difficult and it is still worth the trouble of finding parking at times when park gets busy.

I'd wanted to hike these lakes for a while and read so many things about the swarms of people that it would be ruined. We chose a long weekend of all the times to visit, but set off early (7am) to avoid the crowds, and...More
