Perfect moderate trail with tons of waterfalls and stream crossings. Made it up in less than 2 hours. I used microspikes at higher elevations and that was a big help (I use 3/8" but diamond grip would have been just fine). It would have been nice to have a trekking pole or two on the way down. Definitely coming back to the summer!

SUPER FUN!! Love this hike no matter what season it is. Make sure you pack some yaktrax for the packed ice once you hit the higher altitude(:

Great hike with an awesome view off the side of the trail for the second half. The lake at the top's also a great reward for the hike. Definitely gets a little sketchy with the melting snow on the way up though; highly advise micro chains and a walking stick. Have fun.

One of my all time favorites. We've only done it in the winter (Dec Or Jan), so there is water and mud along the first part of the hike and then often snow on the second half. The lake itself is beautiful though we've only seen it frozen over and surrounded by snow.

We've been fine with just waterproof shoes/boots - no poles or other snow gear.

Highly recommend!

Fun trail that I think I'll do again but in the summer. Took us a while to get around the lake because of the deep snow. Great hike!
