on Lichen Loop Trail

Pretty little trail. It's easy, but not flat. It can be super muddy when wet, too.

Not as much snow as a few weeks ago, very windy on the lake, nice climb up to Lost lake!

Nice enjoyable hike on a warm February day. The north side of the loop is a little more boring than the south. You go through about eight or nine gates over the course of the hike. Saw more horseback riders than hikers.

nice leisurely easier Trail, bit crowded.

It was nice, a lot of the area was burned from the fire but the views to the west were beautiful. It was 62 degrees out and my 11 year old lazy daughter was able to do this no problem.

Not enough snow to snowshoe but beautiful hike. Definitely recommend getting spikes for your shoes as parts as icy

Trail isn't always easy to adhere to.

Beautiful!!! Can't wait to hike up to little blue lake in the summer

Didn't need the snowshoes today. Packed trail - wore spikes, but probably didn't need them. Great easy hike, and the most well-marked trail I've ever been on (love it - from someone who tends to lose the trail a lot when it's not marked :/)!
