IMO this is a trail in name only. My son and I were there for the 2019 archery elk season and if I didn’t have a gps with the trail in my hand we would have sworn there was no trail whatsoever. There was an occasional marker on a tree but I would assume that it just wasn’t popular and forest service just let nature take its course.

Road to trailhead is packed dirt/gravel. I wasn’t sure I was on the right road until I reached the parking lot. A little bumpy, but would be fine in 2wd car. Well-marked trail. Some steep points, but overall not too hard. A good mix of things to see— the reservoir, some nice views, some fields, the stream, etc. Some icy spots today. Used spikes in parts, but could have gone without. Recommend doing the sleepy lion trail to the reservoir first, instead of ending with it. Then if you’re tired it’s smooth sailing back to the car. Also recommend passing the trail to the reservoir and then taking the next left and doubling back to it. This avoids a very rocky and steep walk up to the reservoir, and instead come down that way. This route does come out to 7 miles, though.

A stunning hike! I’ve done this in the summer and in the snow both amazing. Today lots of ice and snow. Very picturesque, frozen waterfalls, and river crossings. The first homestead meadow was so serine. The trail was tricky to follow in a few places, because of the snow. Hiking poles helpful, show spikes a must.

EPIC FAILURE!!! Guys were shooting very close to the trail head. Would’ve given 0 stars but it wouldn’t let me. This was one of the worst and most scary hikes I’ve ever been on!! Not to mention leftover campsites, garbage and shell casings everywhere!!! Ended up driving past where I was supposed to park on the side of the road and kept going up the road until I hit a sign that said private property. Turned around and parked where I saw a couple of other cars. There’s a tiny sign for the park and then another on the other side that says the road is closed. Said road is the one you have to walk up to get to the poorly marked trailhead. Make sure to bring your spikes, if you plan on going after this review, because it’s a sheet of ice all the way up the steep road. When you get to the gate go left immediately or you’ll run into the guys shooting like I did! The trail you’re suppose to take goes down into a valley. If you hit another gate after you’ve gone left you’ve missed the trail head. Beyond the other gate is for off roading I believe. It’s almost as if the people living off the private road don’t want hikers over their so they go down there shooting to scare them off. Very disappointed in humans and the way they treat this beautiful place after this experience.

Beautiful trail with lots of wildlife. Lots of deer, turkeys, birds and adorable Albert's squirrel. Incredible panoramic view at tip of Ponderosa Loop.

We snowshoed on Sunday Jan 19. Blue bird day with no wind! The trail was packed down and spikes would have been fine. If you chose to snowshoe off the trail then the snow gets deep and snowshoes are a must. Trail is enjoyed by skiers, hikers and dogs.

Great trail! Dogs loved it. Icy at times but the rest is easily walkable with some rocks. Added the continental divide outlook to our loop to sit and have some snacks

Hiked this trail on 1/18/2020 - the trail was snowy but packed down nicely until Dream Lake. From there to Emerald Lake the snow was much deeper in spots and the trail had less traffic so snow shoes may have been helpful but we still made it with our spikes. The spikes were especially helpful on the way back down! Beautiful winter hike - highly recommended!

Hiked 1/19, parked in lot after bus stop. Road is closed and a mix of packed snow and some ice from restroom to trailhead. Mostly packed snow with a few icy spots and some plain dry dirt. I wore micro spikes with hiking boots and my cousin had plain, good tread hiking boots on. Both options worked well. We hiked to The Pool and back to parking. Trip was just under three hours, we think five and half miles, with a brief stop for packed lunch and lots of pictures on the way in. Trail was gorgeous with easy incline in certain parts. Lots of flat space as well. Not difficult for this midwestern girl not used to high altitudes.

This hike never disappoints. The trail is near perfect with only a couple spots that had minimal ice. Today was absolutely beautiful, there was no wind and lots of sunshine.

Loved this trail! Nice little hike with an amazing view at the top! My husband and I made it to the top fine but coming down, mini spikes or trekking poles would have helped. We slipped a few times from the snow on the trail being packed down to ice.

Very quick little trail but amazing to see the amphitheater setting likely used my native Americans. Very neat area to visit.

Extremely icy! I fell a few times as a new hiker and probably bad shoes. The ending to see the lake is worth it and would definitely do it again for the views and peace I felt along the way.

A beautiful hike! A little icy is some shaded spots but I did not use spikes.

Heavily used on a Sunday. We encountered many dogs, a couple horses, a couple llamas, and lots of hikers and runners. Well maintained. Restrooms at trailhead.
