Just finished 1A today, massive amount of snow up there. It's alot better going clockwise as the climbs are broken up vs. the long up hill going counter. Just a perfect snow shoeing and beginner Xcountry track, as the hills are mostly gentle.

Great hike, views, adventures. Must see if your visiting.

A wonderful and moderate level hike with breathtaking views at every switchback and turn. Gilpin Lake is quite the treasure. We will definitely hike this trail again.

Hiked to and across the causeway, then back in July. The causeway was so amazing and fun to cross. Makes for fun pictures too! There were a lot of mosquitos in the first half of the hike up, in the woods. Still worth it!

It had just snowed and the views and hike were beautiful!

Great views! Love being able to take the dogs up with me.

Tried to 4x4 up the road, had to stop, and hike the rest. It was absolutely beautiful.

I am a local, and absolutely love this trail. Once you are able to get off the road and onto the trail there are so many fun twisty areas. It is possible to ride up to Dry Lake Campground and back in just under 2 hours for decent mountain bikers. The scenery is great. The only section that is unable to be ridden up is call The Wall. It is a rocky 18% grade. It gets busy in the summer, but the early and late seasons are very enjoyable. There is no better feeling than having it all to yourself!
