    This is a wonderful trail. I recommend starting from the ranger station and heading down toward the Bagley Lakes Trail before heading up the Chain Lakes Trail. If you park your car at the top, (Artist Point) you have to hike all the way back up there at the end and the views unfold so wonderfully coming from Bagley Lakes. Lots of people on the weekend, but go anyway. This is a real "Top of the World" hike.

    Entered from Artist Point and camped at Arbuthnet Lake on 8/11. The trail was in good shape with few snow patches. We did a day hike up Ptarmigan Ridge with the trail easy to find. We exited on 8/13 via Bagley Lakes with snow only at the saddle. We saw no rangers but did see camping at non designated camp sites around the lakes and excessive head counts at designated sites. Beautiful country. Hope it stays that way.
