We wanted to hike the Island Lake hike (8.5 miles) but were unable to go past the lower basin due to snow coverage. Nonetheless, the lower basin hike was beyond beautiful. We camped at the South Mineral Campground and was amazed by the camp host - Ann and Dan - hospitality. We are planning our trip next year for late July so we can do the Island Lake hike.
