“Up close moose was a highlight”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2012

We were not "in shape" for the 18 miles that this hike demands. We could have taken, shuttle, but opted for the full experience. Glad we did it. Plan on a lot of congestion at hidden falls and inspiration point, but once on cascade trail, a lot of quiet. Saw several moose n this 4 mile stretch, before heading NW to lake solitude.

“Great Hike!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2012

Wife & I hiked there from the Lake Jenny side & it was fantastic! We saw moose, marmots and a huge variety of birds. The views are incredible & we took some of the best pictures of our trip. We did the hike in the beginning of June & the last couple of miles were completely covered in snow. Not so much that it couldn't be hiked but enough to slow things down. The snow also covered trail markers so there is some guess work required at the end. At one point we saw a bridge & realized we were about 100 yards off the trail. It should be noted that the very end of the hike is very steep.

“Beautiful Alpine Lake and Meadows”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2011

I'd recommend visiting this lake on the Paintbrush-Cascade Loop - assuming the snow lets you over Paintbrush Divide. Cascade Canyon is a beautiful hike up to the lake, but if you can do Paintbrush in the same day, that's an incredible canyon!! I'd recommending going up Paintbrush and out Cascade. I have a lovely peaceful lunch at Lake Solitude. You won't be disappointed!
