    It was a great and spectacular hike. I am new to hiking so I would consider as a tough one for me.Rocks were slippery and hiking shoes are must as rocks hurt a lot. It’s all worth it.

    Of course, one of the best, most beautiful and maybe even overrated in the summer Hikes I love to go on. I ran this whole thing up with my cousin in about a hour and 20 minutes. If you start early and get there at 7am it is the best.

    Great trail for visitor (I'm from Louisiana). The trees, river, waterfalls, mountain lake, snow, etc all added to the hike. Great weather going up...while attempting to walk around lake through a few feet of snow thunderstorm (supposedly rare there) encouraged us to head back down. Just added to the adventure. Apparently a good bit of work has been done the last few years in improving the trail by adding "steps" and the boardwalk around the lake (where we could find it through the snow)...would consider it a light/moderate difficulty. Lots of cars in the parking lot but didn't seem overcrowded on the trail.

    This was a great hike! I especially enjoyed the amount of variety the hike provided. There were switch backs, rock walls and snow coverage to keep me busy and not bored! It was a great change up if you're getting bored of trails with excessive switch backs. I wouldn't take a child up, the trail gets very rocky near the top, both me and my friend nearly took a spill.

    Quite an impressive hike with a great amount of variety - both scenery, and hiking conditions. We encountered snow at the top, but snowshoes weren't necessary. There was a lot of water on the trail in the upper section, so I was glad to have waterproof boots. The trail is very well maintained but due to the variety of conditions, I would recommend sturdy footwear. Beautiful waterfalls throughout the hike. Well worth the drive and the effort.

    Excellent trail that winds through old growth forest as you ascend into the lake area.

    The upper half of this trail traverses massive rock slides which means you're on some tricky, ankle breaking tread. I hiked on a rainy day and took a really nasty fall on one of these rock slides. I can be very dangerous, be careful and watch your kiddies.

    Can't wait to get back up here to hike it again!

    Very rainy day but still spectacular. Impressed how well maintained the trail was. Even after days of rain it was in a good shape - though some of the granite sections were mini rivers. Beautiful forest all the way up. One of our group was back in the NW for a couple of days and desperate for big trees. This filled his need well. Lake was gorgeous and great pay off for the climb - though it was so cloudy we couldn't really see the mountains surrounding the lake.
