The trail provides a good workout for any hiker, especially if one is carrying camping gear. Although there are camping spots around Lake Blanche, I suggest one hike on to the lower lakes where there are fewer people and more privacy.
For those interested in a relaxing afternoon with spectacular views the Lake Blanche trail can't be beat.
Day hikes from Lake Blanche to Sundial Peak, Dromedary Peak and Twin Peak are very strenuous and require the proper gear, including in some cases ropes to safely summit some of the peaks. Reaching these peaks will require some bushwacking. you will be hiking/climbing through large boulder and scree fields. Be careful.
Beautiful well maintained trail with a great ending at Lake Blanche. This was a climb, not a hike - there were precious few flat areas. Very strenuous for hikers not used to the altitude. Wildflower meadows and aspen stands added to enjoyment.
