This is a great hike to a beautiful lake with excellent peaks in the background. On this day, the trail was clear to Mills and it was not overly crowded, however, later in the summer it will become very crowded, especially late in the day.
We chose to continue the trail to Black Lake. This was a mistake, too early and still a lot of snow. Should have checked with the rangers for a report. The snow makes it more difficult to hike, but the scenery is stupendous !!!
If you are up to an additional 5 miles or so after you get to Mills, and there is little or no remaining snow....go on to Black Lake... Mills in and of itself is worthy of the hike!!!
