It was a very cold day for a hike (9 degrees), but the trail was beautiful hiking in the snow. The snow depth is minimal, with a couple of stretches of ice that warrants using cleats to be safe. I would also suggest taking hiking poles to provide additional balance going down hills. I made it to where the trail ascends to the lakes before turning around. The frozen waterfalls along the creek were amazing!
Cool pond area one mile in and waterfall at about three miles was flowing nicely. Great open views the last 2.5 miles before bass lake. The last 1.5 miles was rocky and had a few inches of snow here or there (10-22-16) but nothing too crazy. The lake area was really nice. Excellent day hike.

Easy trail, great scenery and fishing was great after the first 4 miles.
