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.
