For all the trail stats (elevation gains, distance etc), see AllTrails.com, but for sure, you should do this hike if you're up for the challenge and in the area. We did the south fork one day, and then the north fork the next day. It is incredible country up there. We were surprised how many people were on the north fork trail because it is an elevation gain butt kicker, but once at "Second Lake" we understood why! Temple Crag (highly photo'd on Instagram) lived up to the hype in person, gorgeous. We got all the way up to 5th Lake. Mosquitos were so insane up there! Head net and deet were a must. Start this one early and plan a day of it.

Just beautiful. The hike is not for beginners but you wont even notice how tired you are because everywhere you look is stunning. You will pass the lakes on the way up. It's a must go especially when the ice is melting. We backpacked and got an overnight permit ($5 per person) and split it into 2 days. make sure to bring a bear canister if you stay overnight, we saw bear tracks near our camp.

We didn't hike all the way to the Glacier, the most southern glacier in North America, but we could see it from miles away. Glad we got a chance to see before it melts away.
