It’s an ok hike, nothing really makes it stand out though. There are a couple of good views of Eagle Nest peak. Even the lakes are just average in terms of scenery. I think the Surprise Lake side has more to offer. In the fall it would be a different story. Lots of aspen groves, so I think I would do it again but in the fall.★ ★ ★
After much planning for this backpack trip, Al and I aborted the mission. High snowpack had created a healthy mosquito population. We also saw some folks coming out who said that the trail was overgrown where we were headed. We still had a great time and saw lots of interesting wildlife.
