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.
Just finished this trail, It was stunningly beautiful sadly there was to much snow and it completely covered the entrance to the cave. Because of the snow the road was also closed so we had to walk almost 3 miles just to get to the start of the trail in quite a bit of snow. With out a few feet of snow I bet this trail would be easier, in the conditions we went in I would say moderate or even hard. Still worth it and will be coming back!
Trail had 3-4ft of snow and we also had to walk 2 miles to the trail because they closed the road due to how much snow there was. But the 2miles of walking was on compacted snow. So we parked at the turnaround and walked the 2 miles. Theres so much snow on the ice caves you cannot even see where they are located. So for someone first time there you'll just end up at a mountain side covered in snow pretty much. Still was a good walk/hike. (You don't climb much elevation)
