When you arrive at the visitors' center, take the tram up to the upper lakes, then take the trail back down in and around the lakes. The largest crowds will be at the big waterfall and lower lakes. The upper lakes trail will be much less crowded and more enjoyable. Then, later in the day hopefully the lower lakes will be less crowded, especially during the high season.
