I had heard lots about this hike and I wasn't let down. It was a fabulous hike and the was scenery spectacular. I was hiking alone but met lots of great people on the trail. The crew on the boat shuttle were friendly and gave good tips about completing the hike.

Wonderful hike - take lots of water and enjoy it. The switchbacks are horrid but no pain no gain! The lake is beautiful, a real gem, and the ladder/tunnel/cable are OK if you takeit steady. Enjoy.

Love this trail, it is a little steep, but take your time and the reward is worth it. A boat takes you to Crypt Landing and then comes later in the evening to take you back, the price is very fair.

This is a stunning but strenuous day hike. There was still quite a bit of ice up there when we went in early July so we didn't make it to the lake. It didn't matter as we had a wonderful hike anyway. The boat ride out is fun too.

I cannot say anything negative about this hike. It is not a difficult hike at all. It is enjoyable with a decent amount of switchbacks. The boat cruise is an enjoyable experience and creates a mysterious vibe when heading to the lonely dock to start the trek. The hike has a variety of scenery! The finale - Crypt Lake - is well worth it. The most clear water I've ever seen. Lovely adventure!
