7.7 miles of hiking • 4000' elevation gain •
Hiked this trail back in 2016 but due to foggy weather conditions could not see much. Saturday conditions were picture perfect. This is a fun challenging hike with 2 areas where you utilize ropes to scale a couple head walls. Nothing terribly technical though. The trail was snow free but pretty muddy just after The Lake of the False Prophet, which I understand is not unusual. The Lake of the Angels though was mostly frozen over. After eating lunch I hiked up to one of the ridges above the lake which gave some nice panoramic views of the surrounding mountains.
