Took spikes and poles and had no issues until I tried to walk behind some of the super packed down areas. Postholed up to my hips up near the cabins. Beautiful hike. I’d always wanted to see this one in winter and it did not disappoint.

Hiked on 1/20/20. Went 2.6 miles in from the TH, at which point there were no more tracks in the snow. Beyond this point, you'd be blazing trail in deep snow. Up to this point, the entire trail was hard packed snow. I wore spikes for traction, which was very helpful. Snowshoes not necessary right now unless you plan on going off trail or past the point where you can walk on the established track.

Hiked on 1/20/20. Lost the trail about a mile away from the lake but we back tracked and found it eventually. Used micro spikes for most of the way and then put snowshoes on about the last half mile. The lake is covered in about 1-2 feet of snow so sadly could not alpine skate. But it was still beautiful!

Made it to Lake Isabelle with snowshoes and poles. Perfect day!! Two women in front of us were forging the trail so the tracks were fresh, hence snowshoes were definitely needed. A few people behind us didn’t have snowshoes and it looked like a struggle.

Hiked 3 miles in with very few issues 2 days ago. After 3 we were breaking trail and we turned around at 4 miles. Arrived at 9 and saw almost no one. No destination (as far as we went) but beautiful quiet forest with occasional peekaboo views.

Great hike today! Arrived at 11a on MLK Day to easy parking. Icy in spots. Spikes today would have been nice downhill. Beautiful view from the summit. Steady climb all the way up. A lot of dogs on the trail today. Will definitely hike again.

Nice easy trial. Very packed snow and pretty icy. Don’t need snow shoes but poles came in handy.

a beautiful day for this hike - 35° and sunny! 1 hr 30 min up and 45 min down. I was grateful for my microspikes but could’ve probably done without

Views views views. The trail is packed snow for the most part. You could probably handle it with some good boots and microspikes. I wore snowshoes on the way up and ditched them on the way down and just had boots. The first ¼ is a bit of incline that levels out for awhile until you’ve got the last little ways, bit of steep incline there at the end. I think the altitude is what got me the most. It’s worth the hike so hang in there! Definitely going back.

Did this 1/18. Was super windy and cold, but the trees protected you for the most part which was nice. At the lake it was almost unbearably cold and windy, we couldn’t spend more than a couple minutes there without getting blown over. Trail itself was pretty packed down, you can get away with only microspikes. Nice little warming hut and bathrooms at the trailheads. Dogs technically aren’t allowed on the trail during winter but we did see a few!

Hiked this trail early this morning. Beautiful views, plus some interesting hotel ruins toward the top. There are a bunch of icy patches, and I wouldn’t try this without spikes. Can’t wait to try this trail again in the spring or summer.

great trail... wonderful views... icy in spots, but worth the hike to the top.

Easy trail along the meadow and up through some trees.

Secluded and majestic. Beautiful hike with a decent incline to start, our spikes allowed us to make 1.5 miles in before we started pothole-ing up to our thighs. Definitely would need snow shoes to make it to the top. Saw no one during this trek on a Monday holiday afternoon.

Hiked this trail on Sunday 1/19. Many ice spots in the shaded areas. Great views of front range when you get to Windy point. Little bit of everything to see on this trail: rock formations, cliff drop offs, pines, etc.

Great snowshoeing trail! Just enough difficulty to make you feel accomplished to Summit. Great view from the pass. Snow wasn’t bad. Almost seemed like micro spikes could’ve done the job for most of the trail.

This trail is IMMEDIATELY next to Eldora Ski area, be sure you turn on the satellite layer on All Trails to see. Compare to Eldora slopes here: https://cms.eldora.com/sites/eldora/files/2019-02/ELDO%202018-19%20Mtn%20Map.pdf We tried to find the TH yesterday (19 Jan 2020) by asking at Eldora's Nordic Center. They were unacquainted with the path. We ended up defecting on our endeavour and hitting up Lost Lake... but I hope to come back when the snow is gone and try to hike this one; I am hopeful that's doable given that it *does* appear to be in USFS land, not in Eldora's property.

Good view all the way. A lot of evergreen tree. Icy. Going up is ok, but watch when you walk down.

Spikes highly recommended! A great winter hike close to Denver

Such a fun hike! Beautiful views of the mountains the whole way up and the loop around the lake is gorgeous. It’s like you’re in an enchanted forester with break offs all along the loop to get right up by the lake. It’s snowy but in good hiking boots or yak tracks you can make your way up easily, but be careful coming down the switch backs on your way back to the parking lot.

Snowshoed on 1/20/20. The trail is snow packed but you definitely want snowshoes. Really pretty. Felt more moderate than easy with the snow!

1/20/20, trail was hard snow packed due to snow shoeing and skiers, @ the bowls/pass sign the snow was softer, trail snow not as packed. I hiked with yak tracks and had some sinking, made it ok, my son cruised with snow shoes. My brother in the Lord, Tom , wore boots, no micro spikes. 1 1/2 hours to reach Montgomery pass sign, 1 hour for return trip back down. Beautiful views into north park a Poudre canyon to the East. The views are amazing, but only 4 stars, cause Saw no wildlife. Met 1 skier w/ dog, 1 gentleman snow shoeing, and 3 men frantically searching for Montgomery pass yerts.
