Absolutely beautiful hike.  Whether was fantastic - a few clouds, but mostly clear blue skies.  Around 80 degrees at the trailhead, but much cooler at the top.  Chasm Lake is 8.4 Miles round trip from the Longs Peak Trailhead over mixed terrain.  Awesome Alpine Tundra.  We started a bit late - around 10:00 am.  The entire hike took 4 hours and 45 minutes.  Our only real stops were for pictures and to eat lunch at Chasm Lake.  Saw several squirrels and a few marmots.  Excellent views.  I highy recommend this trail.
