Snowshoes up to Heart Lake from south Boulder creek trail head. Quite a work out w/snowshoes . Very windy at the lake and no visible trail. Beautiful!

Nice trail that can be a bit challenging in places. The switchbacks at the beginning can be a bit tedious, but worth it once you clear them. Trail can be difficult to see with the leafs on the ground. For the 4X4 fans. the road leading to the trail head and beyond is fun.

Great winter hike. I got a late start so I didn't finish the hike, but what I saw was wonderful! I think the trail is a little easer than the rating suggests. The trail was pretty visible even in the snow. This is a great hike that is worth another visit in the spring/summer.

really beautiful. didn't quite make it to the lake. after the longs peak trail splits off to the north, the trail disappeared. tried to break trail through the snow, but was by myself and the terrain started approaching avalanche angle. i'll be back though...

Really great trail with some fairly challenging areas. It had a decent amount of iced over areas but nothing that some normal sneakers couldn't handle. Views were really cool.

Snowshoed the snowshoe trail just to Lake Brainard last weekend (MLK weekend 2017). Used snowshoes, but the majority of the trail was well-packed. There is only slight elevation gain to the lake. I was glad I had my AWD to get to the trailhead, but I saw plenty of 2WD cars make it, too. Busy trail! Don't plan on being alone, but it's still beautiful and scenic. Highly recommend.
