Great conditions on 1/11/2020. Trail was fairly packed down and the views were stunning

4 stars only because it’s pretty busy and you have to pay for parking. Otherwise a very beautiful hike and a must see, at least once. I just prefer less traffic on the trail.

This is a 10mile one way trail it doesn’t end where we turned around

Great Trail that can access many peaks and lakes inside the Rawah Wilderness. Great through hike options from Blue Lake TH - West Brand TH if you have two cars.

Amazing hike that has never left me shy of a few moose sightings per trip. Be very cautious while the female moose have their babies with them. They become wildly aggressive and I have been charged on this trail without even getting close. The day we were charged we ran into two seperate Cow and Calf pairs on our way back to the trail head. Both right on trail, both snarling and kicking up dust with heckled raised.

Great for snowshoeing! I worried it would be too close to town, but in most parts of the trail you do feel more secluded and in the woods. There are a few spots where you can hear traffic or see homes, but to be expected with a trailhead so close to town. We enjoyed the fresh powder and it wasn't busy AT ALL, on a Saturday afternoon! What a nice surprise. Cheers!

Amazing rock formation views on an easy loop hike. Some icy patches, so wish I had YakTracks. Nice self-guided tour info you can borrow from the Visitors Center.

On January 14, 2020: From Glacier Gorge Trailhead to Mills Lake is packed snow, best done with microspikes, though snowshoes are also possible. Walking along the edges of Mills Lake and Jewel Lake felt especially cold even on a sunny day because of the strong gusts of wind blowing snow; I and my fellow hiker put on balaclavas. Beyond Jewel Lake the snow is deeper and requires snowshoes. We followed some snowshoe tracks in the deep snow, but they stopped abruptly about half of the way between Jewel Lake and Black Lake. We tried breaking trail in the deep snow to continue to Black Lake, but even with GPS it was difficult to figure out where the trail was supposed to be. We continued as best we could, but then my fellow hiker postholed into a creek hidden under the snow (probably the creek coming down from Blue Lake) and soaked his shoe. For safety's sake, we returned back the way we came as quickly as possible. In some places along the way back to Jewel Lake, the blowing snow had already almost obscured the tracks we had just made earlier in the afternoon.

Hiked this on 01.12.20. Was extremely cold and windy. Found it easy enough to make it to the lake, but didn’t make it all the way up to the lookout at the top of the glacier due to the conditions. Probably wouldn’t have seen any views if we had made it up there. Love the types of trees up there, some of my favorite in Colorado. Definitely recommend spikes if not snowshoes. Will come back when the weather is a little better or at least will come back more prepared!

We only made it about 2 miles up before dropping into a snow drift about 4 ft. deep. Weather was not in our favor today.

Looks like there was a large animal post holing on portions of the trail nearest the creek. Otherwise the trails were in nice shape with a bit of fresh snow.

Amazing trail to snowshoe. You feel like you’re walking in a winter wonderland! I only snowshoed to a little past the creek - was making it a quick one. You really don’t need snowshoes, the trail is very packed down! You do pass several avalanche paths depending on how far you go so just be alert!

Lovely views. Solid ice along almost the entire trail but was avoidable most of the time.

Best snowshoeing trail in my opinion

Hiked on the morning of 1/12. We were the first ones up and there was few inches of fresh snow. Once the trail really started going uphill (after the fern lake/flattop mountain fork) snowshoes were a must. We hit treeline after ~3 hours of breaking trail in the dark and then lost the trail and turned around. I will say it was my first time up the trail, so maybe someone more familiar with it could have kept going. The first few hundred yards of the above treeline portion were largely manageable with microspikes, save for a few bigger snowdrifts, and I'd imagine that trend continued to the summit. Hope I can come back on a milder day and finish the job.

Absolutely beautiful views after fresh snow.

From where all trails took me, to the lake and back was 3.75 miles and about two hours. I did not hike around the lake but snow shoes are not required. I did it in spikes and got there early to have the lake to myself. When I got back at 10am-parking was full and so were the trails with people and dogs. Come early! There is also a cut off for a much longer hike! Can’t wait to revisit in summer.

Forgot snowshoes. Packed enough for hiking boots. Not a soul around except a coyote. Need to come back and do full

Started with spikes, but switched to snow shoes around tree line. Only went to just past Naylor Lake

Can’t beat this one. Tempted to give one star so people stay away but this is a five star hike.
