It's been years since I've done this hike, so we can back and did it again! I definitely recommend some microscopes or snowshoes right now, it's slipped on the snow without them. it's such a gorgeous hike, and a pretty tough hike that doesn't relent much in elevation gain. I definitely recommend!
Great hike. Plenty of trees and plenty of views. Some places had a lot of ice, spikes would have been nice. Good length! Beginning seemed harder, the rest was easy to moderate.
Dogs are good for off leash on odd days, like the rest of the canyon. :)
Willow lake is a short fun hike that gets your heart going for the first but of incline then mellows out through beautiful aspen trees. You reach the lake in no time and can hang out there for a while or keep going up to Dry lake, which is just a big dry area. The way up to Dry lake is tricky and the trail is small and overgrown, but a fun little jaunt as well. I did this hike with my Brother in Law and nephew. We stayed 2 nights up there and enjoyed every minute.
