I enjoyed the hike with a really fun group of people, weather was perfect. The hike and the carpooling were well coordinated. The hike was as advertised, moderately difficult, at least for me, moderate for a seasoned hiker in good condition. This was a good conditioning hike, pace was correct for distance and time allocation, nine miles, 2100 ft coming and going in six hours, I did about 8 miles stopping over the saddle about a half mile from the lakes. The in and out on same trail worked for me in that I could set my own pace, fall back from the group, enjoy the scenery and then be picked up by the group on the return trip.
