The trail along the Bagley Lakes is easy, accessible, and perfect for families or those seeking a leisurely stroll by the side of a few alpine lovely lakes. Even in the wet weather, this short hike was a wonderful way to enjoy the rain.
A hike at Heather Meadows paired perfectly with a girls weekend stay on Silver Lake. This year we decided on this short hike, basing our decision on the ominous rainclouds, Marie's hiking boots being on their last legs (after sixteen years finally losing their soles) and the new snow at Artist Point. There was evidence of recent snowfall along the side of the trail, but we didn't hit any patches on the trail itself. The trail was, however, very wet and muddy in many places. Fall hikes tend to be.
