Did this hike as a day hike. Awesome views best scenic hike i've done. Hiked upper lake first beautiful views with good size cuts swimming the banks, Lower lake is beautiful as well I liked upper better myself. If you do this as a day hike just pick one lake. too much hiking not enough fishing to visit both lakes
