  • Up to Diamond Lake is a very easy walk, but what is worthwhile is to climb to the top. We chose the West track, and as the mountains ice melt, there was much water and much mud. So I had to go to go carefully so you don't slip. It took us an hour and a half to the top. With brief stops for some photos. Above into a lot of wind, but the views were magnificent. You have 360-degree views. The fall went by the East Track. Easier the descent even if they load more the quadriceps. Do not hesitate to make this hike.
