Must do full day hike, with very rewarding views! Emerald lakes and the crater lake are huge highlights. Recommend taking the local shuttles. They do cost but it is the easiest option to get there and back safely. Summer is the best time for hiking the crossing, but essential to take plenty of food, water and extra warm gear incase of changing alpine weather.
