We hiked on many beautiful, wild flower laden trails. Lots of free parking and trail access is quite easy. Trails are well-maintained.

We visited this area after we broke down in laramie. It was a pleasant drive with lots of beauty. We even got to hike and touch snow in August. Nice place to visit.

This is a beautiful area and drive, especially on a clear day. There are great hikes for everyone, even just around the edge of the lakes. If you're up to hike the summit or even part of it, the views just get better!

Sad to see the beetles have taken a good part of the trees, still a nice drive with scenic pull outs. Mirror lake is with stopping for.
