|Got a late start on this day due to cooking a big breakfast and yakking with my neighbors over coffee at their campsite. So I decided to take it easy and just explore these two lakes near the Mosquito Flats/Little Lakes Valley Trailhead. Even with extending the hike in a loop around another lake I was able to far exceed my goal "to take it easy". Only 2.2 miles with almost no elevation gain. I didn't see another person on this weekday hike although the well worn trail and its closeness to the trailhead indicates it gets lots of use on weekends and holidays. |
If you're looking for an easy 2 mile hike for toddlers (or worn-out oldsters) to see a couple of scenic mountain lakes, this is your ticket. Just don't take them past the two Eastern Brook Lakes to Serene Lake. The small amount of off-trail thrashing isn't worth the effort for that not-so-scenic lake.
