My wife and I took our daughter (14) and son (12) to Robin Lakes for two nights. The weather was fantastic. The day we hiked in was cloudy and the heat was not too bad, which was a blessing. The trail up to tuck after the junction is marked 1.1 miles on the map but feels longer. It also feels like you are going straight up. The trail to Robin from Tuck is more up up up, but is more entertaining and has great views. When you get to Tuck climb up and over the bluff on the right of the lake, but stay close to the lake and drop down to the log jam on the shore of the lake. Cross there and then continue up to Robin Lakes. There are plenty of spots to camp around the lakes, no need to camp on grass or vegetation that might be easily destroyed and take years to grow back. There were some mosquitoes, flies and bees at Robin Lake, but we were not attacked to bad. Lots of goat activity and some that seemed a bit aggressive, so be aware. Don't pee on plants or near roots as they will eat them and dig them up. My son packed up a floaty and had a blast touring the lake and my daughter enjoyed playing her ukulele on the shore. We had a great time together without the hustle and bustle of daily life and the distraction of screens. Getting into the wilderness with our kids is always treasured time. -Ken
