Good snowshoe trail. Would recommend poles for the way down, there are some parts you could get away with with hiking boots only but would still recommend poles. There is one steep section that would be difficult without spikes or snowshoes. Lovely mountain views at the top, it’s like you’re in a bowl surrounded by mountains. Lots of snow up by the lake. We caught some skiers going down the hill at the top too which was fun to watch.

We tried this trail on December 6 with regular hiking boots, but I definitely think having snow shoes would have made the ascent easier. This is a great short hike if you’re new to hiking!

A gun day hike. Steep at the beginning, and flat up top. Lots of nice views up there.

Amazing winter hike. Views of the upper lake was stunning at the beginning. Snow is pretty packed down. Don’t really need spikes but they definitely make it easier.

Great little walk to end the day. Lake was frozen over which made for some cool photos.

I did this trail on October 6th. The trail through the trees to Rawson Lake gets no sun and was really icy. You need cleats or poles for this part. Once you arrive at Rawson Lake, it then switches to lots of deep snow and the climb to Sarrail Ridge is south facing and was extremely muddy. Great hike and great View, but you need to be prepared for a variety of difficult trail conditions.

Beautiful trail! Wasn’t too icy going up at around 2pm but on the way down it had begun to freeze. Spectacular view at the top!

Great trail - hard packed snow until about 3/4 way around rawson lake, any further would have required snowshoes or at least gaiters. Gorgeous views, would recommend

Accidentally did a closed trail because it wasn't closed from the direction we approached, ended up being very icy and sketchy. But beautiful views from the lakes, took the road down as the trails were too icy to descend.

Awesome did it November 12th! Trail is packed down well did it on hiking boots with spikes and had no problems. Brought Snowshoes for around the lake. The road in is a bit bumpy but is ploughed can be done by car but SUV is recommended. Overall awesome trail amazing views not to hard! Like the other reviews say around the 3km mark is when it flattens out.
