We hiked up to mohawk lake today (11/26/16) and it was packed snow on the trail most of the way up, then got a bit deeper once we were closer to the lakes, but fine to hike with or without Yaktracks on the shoes. Stunning views!! Follow Spruce Creek trail all the way and you're all set!

Nov 13. Started hike at 10am and was up and back by 3. moderate difficulty for a midwestern guy who is not adapted to the elevation yet. cabin at mid mountain was a great feature. Snow packed at 12k ft. Didn't see any horseback riders but it is allowed on the trail. if you have a Jeep you can drive 75% of the way up but what's the fun in that?

Great trail. It got a little challenging and difficult at the end but was worth it! Be sure and get to Upper Mohawk lake.

One of the best trails. Quiet through the trees, then opens up at the top. A little scrambling is required, but it's easy. Late October and the air temperature is 39°. Trail is dry except a couple of muddy spots. Trails intertwine near the 2nd lake and it's easy to feel you've lost the trail. Keep heading up and you'll be fine.

Great hike! Enjoyed the beautiful scenery .......even in late October still breathtaking. We hiked from the Spruce Creek trailhead to Upper Mohawk Lake. So QUIET and peaceful and worth the extra effort to get up there. We stopped at the Lower Lake for a power snack. Glad we started early (by 9:30) as the trail was starting to get muddy on the way back down. Pay attention to the cross trail signs and keep trekking on Spruce Creek. Took us just under 5 hours with several stops.

Great hike. First ~3 miles aren't trying; it's the last half mile that pushes this toward moderate. I met 10 very friendly mountain goats at the lake!

Wish the trail had more markers, as it got a bit confusing at times. There are definitely some steep parts that were difficult, but I made it to the lower lake carrying my baby in a carrier and using hiking poles.
