Amazing scenery and not a difficult hike if you are better than couch fit. Even most out of shape folks should find this hit manageable, but for the altitude for us sea-level folks.

This is a beautiful untouched spot of nature that you must see to believe. However here's a tip - where hiking boots. Athletic shoes will work but you really need the ankle support with the rocky terrian (and I mean ROCKY). I say many foolish women/girls in sandals and flip flops. I dont know how they didnt sprain their ankles.

We like hiking up to the lake to get close to the Bells. An easy to moderate hike depending on your tolerance for the altitude. It was spring so the aspens were just blooming. Look for the whistlepigs and the small waterfalls on the Bells.

Beautiful views and lots to see. Nice paths and areas to stop and rest as well. Take a camera!
