Strenuous hike for about thirty minutes. We turned back after an hour and didn't hit the lakes. Really fun hike with lots of friendly hikers on the trail. So many dogs!
Get ready to climb 1,000 feet right away, this is a steep hike up to the lakes, with no shade cover, and the majority to the hike is getting to the lakes. Once you make it, the lakes are on fairly level ground. Bring plenty of water and some food, hike takes about 2.5-3 hours :)
