This hike was really beautiful. Only problem was that it is incredibly crowded. Parking is very limited. We found a space in the overflow parking lot, but there were cars parked down the road about a mile.

Super hiking. Good signals Super views Small parking: we recommend to go at 8:00am, much better The first lake is just 200m from the parking, so you can bring someone to see the lake with bas walking skills
