    In the fall, if you can get on trail at daybreak, you can have the trail to yourself...for awhile. Way too cool but you heat up in a hurry because the hike is uphill all the way to the Lake, with several level respites. I hike to fly fish and it was well worth the effort. Didn't catch anything but thoroughly enjoyed the scenery of the lakes above the tree lines. There are several places along the trail where it's easy to lose the trail. However, because the trail goes up Cunningham Gulch you don't have to look/wander long to reacquire the trail. On the hike down I encountered a family of five with three kids I would say 4-7 years old with their parents, all wearing flip flops, (the KMart kind). I kinda felt good about my effort until that moment. Nevertheless, thoroughly enjoyed the day.
