I use this trail year round. Love it because it's so easy to get to and gorgeous year round. Plus my huskies love it. It was fairly windswept today and a bit difficult to find easy ways across some of the snowfields on the slope, but we did make Silver Dollar Lake today.
Just did this yesterday. It was ICCCCCCYYYYYY. Please be careful. Im an experienced hiker, and busted my BUTT and have a large abrasion on my butt because of it (tore my leggings etc.) This is one of my all time favorite hikes in the area, when its not snowy. If you're doing this one this time of year PLEASE bring spikes/crampons/snow trax for grip. Also, since all trails can NEVER get anything right, we mapped it with our GPS device. It is exactly 5.4 miles RT from the Granite Trailhead.
