Good hike up, some steep parts for my beginner legs. Way down was quick.

Awesome snowshoe hike. The views are amazing and there was hardly anybody on the trail.
I’d rate it more easy than moderate, since the inclination is very gradual except for some hilly parts near the end. Took us
3 1/2 hours to complete it including snack and numerous photo breaks.
Can’t wait to see the lake in summer!

Took the snowshoes made the east end of Sulphur a bit easier to walk. Beauty day Jan 15

Long, boring slog through the trees for 90% of the hike with nothing to see. Starts getting interesting at the base of Eisenhower. The last climb that takes you from Tower Lake to Rockbound is pretty tough but worth the trouble. The cliffs surrounding Rockbound Lake are extraordinary.

Short and simple but plenty to be awed with. :)

Beautiful winter hike! But if you're not a very active person and just starting out then know that the full hike can be pretty harsh. It was my first hike of the year and I'm not a very active person and I walked out exhausted and in pain. But pushing through it is definitely worth it! But please, please, please BRING CLEAT ATTACHMENTS ! It is very icy in some spots and there's nothing worse then having your hiking vibe on and you're being held up because someone thought it was a great idea to wear Uggs or sneakers. DRESS APPROPRIATELY. Can't wait to go back and do a summer hike.

Nihahi was my third hike and it was a tough one but boy was the view worth It! I recall it taking us 2.5 hrs give or take. mind you it was a really hot day. I definitely want to do it again only this time go more prepared as we ran out of water going up

Beautiful view of townsite and prairies , amazing hike

Always a favourite! Hiked this for sunrise on Jan 9/18 and the trail was nicely packed down & easy to follow in the dark! I had micro spikes and poles, as some sections were icy.

Went snowshoeing today with my dog, it was really nice. Couldn’t do the full hike because of avalanche warnings but we hiked to the point which had beautiful views.

Very good location to see Rock Wrens. The landscape sometimes feels other-worldly, or moonscape perhaps, but with some semi-familiar plant life to keep some connection with Earth

Nice easy stroll on maintained (gravel) path through the grasses, brush and trees along the river. Provided my first sighting of Canada Warbler and Spotted Towhee

I’ve hiked to this lake starting from the trailhead. It’s long, but varied with wonderful views. There is an alternate exit that leads to a rockwall and chimney, to a couple of stunning lakes that you can see in the distance when you hike in on the main trail. Definitely will be hiking this again.

I have done this little hike several times in the last few years. A favorite place to take friends! Well marked trail, lots of amazing waterfalls, and my dog really enjoys it as well

Alrighty then....went up a roughly compacted prairie view trail. We were on snowshoes but others had beaten up the trail with just walking on it. Great hiking through the trees. Was super windy so it was nice to be protected in the trees. Had to kick off the old snowshoes to climb up the trail as it went up behind some steep rock. Came out on top and needed snowshoes as it got deep. There were some signs with arrows at that point, that helped showed us the way as the winds had blown the snow over the trail. Once we went passed the amazing 360 view, there were two arrow signs and that was it. Unfortunately it took us off the trail and was very confusing as to where to go. There needs to be better marking at the top and on the whole prairie view trail until it meets Jewell Pass trail. Thankfully we had AllTrails app that helped us find the loop out. There were no other tracks or markings to find the trail. Another gal was lost and found our tracks in the snow. Was so beautiful coming down through the trees on Jewell Pass trail as the trees were still covered with snow. Definitely needed snowshoes to do this Loop as it got really deep after the top. You should be able to find the trail from our tracks, as long as it doesn’t get blown over again. Awesome hike. Harder to snowshoe in all the foot holes from boots. Was like walking on a fluffy cloud after the top.

Good packed snow trail with moderate elevation shifts. Recommend cleats/crampons in the packed snow. Also good for snowshoeing.

I’ve done this hike a few times now. He most recent was Jan,3,2018 there wasn’t to much snow at all! Crampons would be a good thing to have and some polls. It’s a hard trail but definitely a god day hike it take about 4 hours in and out!

Connect to coxhill for a point to point. Great hike along nice open ridges
