distance from our car @ parking closest to the trailhead allowed. We followed the trail to the falls then on to lake & back out. Gorgeous 5mi — 2h 01m

This is a fantastic hike with great rewards. Kid friendly. Plenty to see along the way: waterfalls, Quandary to the south, upper lake is amazing!

Great hike after you get to lower lake. Trail a bit chaotic and too many people to there. Terrific higher — 3h 00m
