    I hiked this trail with my two Labs and a friend on a sunny day in the 60's. The first 2 miles up to the lower lake is on a moderate well traveled trail. This part is shaded. There are numerous camp sites around the lower lake. The trail up to the second lake is around a mile. It is somewhat steeper. Still a moderate trail. The upper lake although smaller is beautiful sitting below Lost Buck pass and Carney peak. There are rainbow trout in this lake. My friend caught two 12 - 14" fish while I made my way to the pass. Fantastic views of swamp creek valley, Lost Buck, and Wanless lakes. The view back down Lake creek is marvelous as well. To get to the pass you travel through a hemlock forest. Huckleberry plants are along the trail for most of this trip as well. By the time we went there were very few berries left. We hiked this trip as a day hike but to get the most out of it stay a night. This is definately worth it. I'll do it again next time with a huckleberry bucket.

    A good day hike with time for swimming in both lakes, and going to the top and around to the north a quarter to half mile gives you a great view into Wanlan Lake.
