|NATIONAL PARKS QUICKLINKS|
The hike up through Tyndall Gorge to these lakes is a popular one and for good reason. The hike is easily done in a few hours so that the hiker can take his time and hang out at various spots and not have to rush out before dark. The hike does not entail any strenuous climbs but mainly gentler uphill grades. Due to it's popularity, it may not be the hike for one who is seeking seclusion in the wilderness. We went in September however and only crossed paths with a handful of hikers. It is a great 'first time' hike for folks who want to get out of their cars and experience the park more intimately but are not sure about how much hiking they can do. Definitely one of the more accessible treasures of RMNP.
